The on-going legal battle between Apple and Samsung has revealed that the latter is making an 11.8-inch tablet with LTE connectivity and a 2560 x 1600 resolution display.

The Verge unearthed the court documents which show that the Samsung tablet – codenamed P10 on a company roadmap – will have a 16:10 aspect ratio and will boast a pixel density of 256 pixels per inch. In contrast, the new iPad's Retina Display has a PPI of 264.

This is not the first time reports have surfaced on a high-resolution Samsung tablet. Back in December of last year, tech website BGR claimed that the Korean conglomerate would show off an 11.6-inch tablet with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 at the Mobile World Congress in Spain in March, but the model never showed up.

Other reports earlier on in 2012 claimed that the tablet had been seen at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and featured Samsung's 2GHz Exynos 5250 dual-core ARM chip.

Samsung would certainly have the capability to manufacture such a screen with Samsung Display reckoned to be the second biggest LCD manufacturer in the world. The tablet size is interesting because most tablets to date have been between 7 and 10-inches in size, so it may be that Samsung’s latest tablet could run Microsoft’s forthcoming Windows 8.
