A patent reveals Samsung said to be developing a Padfone-like smartphone/tablet, namely Galaxy Hit.
In terms of size, Samsung offers a variety of handsets. Starting from the low-end devices of the Galaxy line featuring a 3.2 to 3.5 inch screens, to the huge Mega with its 6.3-inch display.
A new patent has been leaked to the Web suggesting that the Korean manufacturer has something new in the works. No, it’s not the Galaxy Gear 2 with hologram display. It actually is the counterpart of the ASUS Padfone, which essentially is a smartphone that can be plugged in a 10.1-inch tablet, thus displaying the phone’s springboard in a bigger display.
Moreover, the device will belong to the Galaxy family under the name Hit: Samsung Galaxy Hit. Sources also claim that the Hit will actually boast a higher-resolution display than the tablet/docking station. There’re no any details regarding the exact resolution and screen size of both displays nor the specifications of Hit.
According to the document from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the company has shown interest in the particular trademark. Based on the Office’s reply, it appears that Samsung has successfully trademarked Galaxy Hit.
FIG. 9 is a rear view of the terminal for wireless communication of FIG. 1 illustrating an example of how the terminal for wireless communication of FIG. 1 may be docked to a tablet PC.
