It has been suggested today, by pocket-lint, that a 'source close to the matter' has revealed that Samsung intends to announce the Samsung GALAXY Tab 11.6 at the South by Southwest, SXSW, event in Austin, Texas, tomorrow, Friday 9th at 10PM GMT.
Whilst we can not confirm this rumour, we do know that Samsung is officially scheduled to be making a 'special' and unspecified announcement at this time.
Could the GALAXY Tab 11.6 be the rumoured iPad 3 killer that we reported on back in December? Certainly if this is the device to be unveiled it fits the bill; an 11.6 inch screen, though with a device barely larger than the 10.1 inch range due to a reduced bezel, rumoured to sport a whopping Retina-trouncing 2,560 x 1,600 display, running a dual-core 2GHz ARM Cortex-A15-based Exynos 5250 CPU alongside the new ARM Mali-T604 GPU.
Well here's hoping, expect a report tomorrow evening after the announcement is over, if there's something to report about that is.
EDIT: We're now hearing from sources that Samsung's announcement is actually relating to a new Angry Bird's product, suggesting that any new Samsung hardware will likely receive its own launch event.
