A meeting last night held by Samsung executives held some gems in the form of potential new Android devices over the next year. The meeting, which was specifically to discuss ways that Samsung will be going after Apple’s market share, was not an explicitly Android event, so we can’t be absolutely sure that these will be Android devices, but the chances are good and there were some exciting things to be heard.
The “biggest” announcement was that Samsung is planning on squeezing that ridiculously high-res tablet screen they recently revealed, which squeezes 2560×1600 pixels into the same 10.1″ screen that is featured on tablets like the Galaxy Tab 10.1. As we’ve seen in the past though that many pixels can put a big strain on a CPU. To accomodate this Samsung has been in talks with companies looking for a chip with enough power.
Another interesting topic discussed was dual screen phones. It’s not unheard of, with the Kyocera Echo being just that, but whether or not it will catch on is a little unsure. The Echo for one, made little splash for being as unorthodox as it is. Then again the Nintendo DS was a gigantic succes. There was also a demo of a Galaxy S II incorporating either RFID, and mention of a potential cloud phone.
With all this in the further future, and plenty of great stuff just in the pipeline (get that Galaxy S II over to America already!!!) Samsung is gearing up for an intense year ahead. Let the Korean Android goodness flow!
