It has just been a little over a month since Samsung announced a slew of new devices at its Premiere event and already word is circulating as to what the company has planned for the coming weeks. Hardware rumor source evleaks gives a glimpse of two new devices that could very well be the highest resolution Android tablets in the market to date.

The SM-P900 is rumored to be running on Samsung's new Exynos 5 Octa chip and boasting a resolution of 2560x1600 on a 12.2-inch display. It also comes with the Wacom-powered "S Pen" stylus, suggesting that it could be part of the Galaxy Note family of devices. If proven true, the P900 will be Samsung's largest Android device, if one doesn't take into account the recently announced ATIV Q, an Intel-based tablet/laptop hybrid that runs both Windows 8 and Android side-by-side.

The second device, the SM-P600, also sports a similar 2560x1600 resolution but on a smaller 10-inch display. And unlike the P900, the P600 is rumored to be running on a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, giving it clock speeds of up to 2.3 GHz. There is also no S-Pen stylus included with the tablet. The size of the tablet suggests that it could be a successor to the Nexus 10, which sounds reasonable considering the recent announcement of the new Nexus 7, which is manufactured by rival company ASUS.

Like many rumors, there is no word on when these devices would be revealed. However, it is likely that Samsung will time the announcement with the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin next month.
