Another report points to imminent launch of Samsung’s monster 12.2-inch tablet

For the second time in just a few days, a report out of South Korea claims to confirm that Samsung will launch its largest tablet yet in the coming months. Earlier this week, a purported photo of the upcoming 12.2-inch Samsung tablet was published on a Korean forum along with various specs. The report also claimed that the new slate, possibly called “Galaxy Note Pro” or “Galaxy Note 12,” would launch early next year. Now, a new report from ZDNet Korea reiterates those specs, adds a few new ones, and states that the Galaxy Note Pro will launch sometime in the first quarter of 2014. Citing an unnamed industry source, the blog says that the new tablet will feature a 12.2-inch 2,560 x 1,600-pixel LCD display, a 2.4GHz processor, 3GB RAM memory, a 9,500 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. Finally, the site also notes the tablet measures 11.6 inches long by 8 inches tall, and it will be unveiled in a few short weeks during the CES 2014 trade show.

This is Samsung’s gigantic 12.2-inch tablet

Reports suggest that both Samsung and Apple have plans to introduce a new class of gigantic tablet in 2014 and from the look of things, Samsung will get the jump on its archrival once again next month. A photo posted to Korean-language forum Clien.net and picked up by Phone Arena supposedly reveals Samsung’s monster tablet for the first time. It is also accompanied by purported specs that are in line with high-end smartphones and tablets that are already available, suggesting size will indeed be this slate’s main selling point. Seemingly dubbed either Galaxy Note 12 or Galaxy Note Pro, Samsung’s upcoming tablet will supposedly feature a 12.2-inch display with better-than-HD 2,560 x 1,600-pixel resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB of storage, a 9,500 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. The massive new Samsung slate is expected to be unveiled next month at CES ahead of a launch sometime in the first quarter.

Samsung’s giant 12-inch tablet looks set to debut in early 2014

October came and went without the Galaxy Note 12 launch we were promised by recent rumors, but a new report suggests the giant tablet will likely debut sometime early next year. Digitimes on Monday cited information from multiple anonymous sources at unnamed supply chain companies in Taiwan in claiming that Samsung is readying 12.2-inch “tablets” that will enter mass production by the end of 2013. The timing suggests that Samsung may plan to announce the supersized slate at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this coming January. Earlier reports suggested that the Galaxy Note 12 will feature a better-than-full HD display, and Digitimes thinks this will be among the first of many tablets with displays that grow beyond 10-inches. Apple is also rumored to be toying with the idea of a larger iPad, though it is unknown if a 12- or 13-inch iPad will ever see the light of day.

Samsung reportedly prepping 12.2-inch and 10-inch tablets with better-than-full HD screens

Samsung has long been known to launch a wide range of devices that attack various screen sizes and price points, and it looks like the company may soon add two new devices to its extensive tablet lineup. Noted gadget leaker @evleaks recently posted information about when he claims to be two upcoming Samsung tablets. The first is a 10-inch slate with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and the second is a larger 12.2-inch tablet with an Exynos 5 Octa chipset and S Pen support — a “Galaxy Note 12,” perhaps. Both devices are said to include high-resolution 2560 x 1600-pixel displays, but no other information is available at this time.
