Although people are already dreaming of 6.3 inch phablets, here comes Deepak Ahuja with a concept of a tablet that’s 5.6 inches in diagonal. This squared slate is dubbed Samsung Galaxy Tab 5.6 and it explores yet another original format for Samsung, after they tried each and every diagonal possible out there.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 5.6

Galaxy Tab 5.6 runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with the Samsung TouchWiz Nature UX and the screen is a 5.6 inch Super AMOLED panel with a 720 x 1080 pixel resolution and 336 ppi. Inside there’s a quad core processor with 1.3 GHz frequency (Exynos most likely) and at the back we have a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. At the front there’s a 1.9 MP camera with BSI and all these features make me think about a tablet for the masses, a product that’s both good and reasonably priced.

We get 16/32 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM, making this a hit of 2011 rather than 2013. Finally we get a 5100 mAh battery and if the designer imagined a price above $200 this model is doomed. Is there any room for this diagonal on the market? Also, this model is 8.2 mm thin, so not exactly “the world’s thinnest”, since Sony Xperia Tablet Z is 6.9 mm in thickness.
