Dozens of Apple and Samsung products are being leaked to the public in the blockbuster patent trial that got started in San Jose, Calif., today. The latest of these leaks comes from court documents that show Samsung might be working on an 11.8-inch tablet with "Retina Display," according to The Verge.

Codenamed "P10," this tablet would reportedly have LTE connectivity, 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution, and a pixel density of 256 ppi, according to The Verge. This is much bigger than the iPad tablet, which currently features a 9.5-inch screen, 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution, and a pixel density of 264 ppi.

According to The Verge, Samsung is one of the largest suppliers of LCDs and AMOLEDs, so it makes sense that it would look to get into the world of Retina Display for its Galaxy line.

Sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 are currently banned in the U.S. due to the patent case with Apple. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ordered an injunction on the tablet in June at Apple's request. Apple said that the key design patents that cover its iPad also seem to apply to Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1. In its counter-argument, Samsung has repeatedly referred to that design as "generic."

In addition to the possible "P10," other leaked products via court documents include two Windows Phone 8-based Samsung devices , codenamed Odyssey and Marco, and dozens of early prototypes and sketches of Apple's iPad and iPhone .
