Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2-inch Android tablet leaked

Samsung’s new best friend — that is, their highly successful Note series of devices — has been good to them. The latest phone entry was good enough to join the 10 million sales club alongside the Note 2, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and more. Now, it looks like Samsung is about ready to bring us another Note tablet.

A photo of a supposed “Samsung Galaxy Note Pro” has leaked Clien.net. This tablet reportedly sports a 12.2-inch display, which is the size of an unknown 12.2-inch Samsung tablet that made the rounds at the FCC about a month go.

If those two are the same devices, we’re told to expect the following list of specs:

  • 12.2-inch 2560 x 1600
  • QualcommSnapdragon 800 processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage
  • 8 megapixel rear camera
  • 2 megapixel front camera
  • 9,500mAh
  • Android 4.4

That’s about all we know for now, but it’s not hard to figure out that this will be one capable beast of a slate. We imagine it’ll cost a pretty penny to own once it’s available, but we’re getting a bit ahead of ourselves — we’ll need to see this thing unveiled first before we start thinking about any price or release date (though rumors suggest CES will be the platform for its grand arrival).

    The Galaxy Yese, to contrast with the Galaxy Note…

  • pr0xidian

    Looks nice. If it has a keyboard accessory that doesn’t suck I might want one. I really liked the keyboard I had on my asus transformer infinity but the tablet just didnt have enough ram for my purposes. :(

    • JB

      My goodness I hope there’s a keyboard for this (and as fully featured as the Asus model) It’d almost be the perfect laptop replacement.

  • JB

    Well if this is true, it’s a good thing I waited on getting Note 10.1 (2014) I’ll spend my money on this instead.

    • Unorthodox

      I think the other way. This huge form factor, no x64/4Gb of RAM, swayed me to buying 2014 model (to upgrade my 2013 model). All I need is a great deal, because I think it’s overpriced at MSRP. I don’t see 12″ display as a breakthrough offer.

      • Ajmcnicol

        People said the same thing about the original Note phone. Its huge form factor wont be popular. And for its audience, it quite is. I am sure there is a market for a 12 inch tablet. Just cause we may not want one doesnt mean others wont.
        Also, 4 gigs of ram is overkill at this point. Not to mention x64 is need for MORE then 4 gigs and we arent even at 4 gigs yet.
        For a screen that big and resolution, the GPU will be the limiting factor. You need a high end gpu to move things along smoothly..not just for gaming but rendering the screen. Ask the NExus 10 crowd.

        I dont take my tablet out in public..i use it as a media consumption device at home so the size is not a negative factor for me and the extra realestate would actually be useful.
        The issue here is that samsung charges a premium on everything..like apple. Even though the extra two inches might only cost them say..50 bucks extra per screen to manufacture, they will charge another 200+ over the 10 inch model.

        • Unorthodox

          No disagreement here. Just a couple of points.
          x64 is needed for 3.5Gb+ and we’re almost at 3Gb.
          My usage is different – my Note is a media consumption device (aside of the obvious note taking and sketching abilities) and I use it in public transit, ‘cuz I take close to an hour rides to and fro work. As much as Note 10.1 has been a full laptop replacement for me (I haven’t turned on my VAIO for more than a year), I think a bigger tablet would be very inconvenient to use without a full docking station.
          I too think that it will sell, it just be a skip generation of Note for me.

    • Zar

      And I just bought the 10.1 2014! After holding out almost a full whole year waiting for a possible new Nexus 10! FML!

      • shonangreg

        There has been quite a bit of speculation about a Note 12.2 for months and months now.

  • supremekizzle

    Probably going to be like $900

    • Al Jourgeson

      whats the price of the latest high end apple tablet? because if they are smart, it’ll be exactly the same as that.

      • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

        The 128GB iPad Air is $799 WiFi only and $929 with LTE. Given that the Note 10.1 2014 model with LTE is running for around $700, I’d imagine the WiFi only version of the Note 12.2 to run about $750-900.

    I thought it was going to have 3 gb of ram.

    • Mitchel White

      I doubt it will have 2

  • Chris H

    Why does my Note 3 have more RAM than this does…?

    • Mitchel White

      It’s a typo. The other article says 3

    that is all.

  • Rebecca Abraham

    The bigger screen makes it far more acceptable for business use – I’m already using my Note 10.1 for my business – and as for the art applications…… The only trick they consistently miss is the rear camera sensor – give us at least a 12MP sensor with clearview type digital zoom…….. and they’ll have to open new factories to keep up with demand!

  • maaen

    Removable battery? Separate charger? Spare battery? Until the day comes when a large tablet from Samsung is presented to us in the same way as Notes 1, 2, & 3… until then the tablet will never be classed as truely portable.Carrying a charging cable or cradle is OK but a spare fully charged battery will always make more sense …and I really wish that people who write these articles would fight on consumers’ behalf and somehow convince manufacturers such as Samsung to see some good sense and provide tablets with removable batteries just as Samsung does with their smartphones.
    And as a side note a slim tablet is OK but a removable battery will be a sensible way to go for millions of potential customers who hold back from buying because the battery is all sealed up and cannot be removed by the user.I will never buy a phone if I cannot remove the battery in an external charger….and that also means that I will not buy a tablet from Samsung no matter how much I would love to

    • malcmilli

      I’m going to have to disagree with you on the pretense that a tablet is not truly portable without a removable battery. It’s actually much more portable to carry a usb charger with you than it would be to carry an extra 10 inch battery. That’s practically like carrying around 2 tablets.

      I’m not saying removable batteries arent useful in many instances, but I dont think you desire for one in a tablet size device accurately reflects that of the large scale consumer market.

      • maaen

        I can understand your point of view and since this is the norm for most users of tablets they are able to live with the state of affairs….but I am also thinking about the long term view when an in built sealed up battery will need to be removed and replaced by a new battery…. I do not like the idea of a tablet being discarded because the battery no longer holds its charge for more than a few minutes…. I would much rather have a second battery used as an alternating power source …..and a separate charger charging the depleted battery externally…. it is also better to charge a battery outside a gadget where it can breathe as it charges…… but in this fast paced world most people just don’t care too much about such things…
        I truely believe that if Samsung actually cared enough..they would produce a better product which would make a lot of real sense to millions of consumers and for many many years to come into the future…and they will in the process also work overtime to produce a better and much smaller battery.

        • mcl630

          It’s sad, but tablets are becoming “disposable”. People use one for a year or two, then buy a newer/better one and toss the old.

          • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

            If you throw a tablet away after a couple of years instead of reselling it and getting some kind of money for it, then you’re hurting only yourself.

        • Unorthodox

          The most critical for a large tablet is convenience to use, like holding it with only one hand, and use stylus in the other (especially applicable to the Note series). That’s why the main trend in tablets is getting thinner. There’s no room for a swappable battery in such configuration, so good luck if you’re waiting for that.

          • maaen

            Season’s greetings
            In the very least SAMSUNG can make it easy to allow an end user to open the back of the tablet and also make it easy for the battery to be easily removed in order to be replaced…. so.. as far as I understand it… there is a certain excuse that the manufacturer will make not to let an end user get access to the battery….and that seems immoral …. These manufacturers have enough capability to make things possible if so they desire…. and I can understand that trends for slim tablets will carry on in ascendency but if they only cared a bit about the end user like me and I am sure there are millions like me who will refrain from buyindg just because of this one factor of not being able to get access to the back of the tablet and to remove and replace the battery.
            Have you noticed …even the Note 8 does not allow access to the back ..and it is not a big gadget …and so I can only assume that the business of sealed backs is tightly controlled by the manufacturer and we are the not so smart ones for letting them make fools out of us…
            I have stopped myself from buying Notes 8, 10.1 and the same will happen with 13.2…all because of the problem with access to the back and the battery…..there is one extra factor …these tablets could easily house two or even three micro sd cards…..but they will not allow for this possibility…I know you would only use one card at a time but why not allow for all possibilities. …I also know that manufacturers would all like us to use cloud services….but why should you if you do not want to…..
            Anyway …I guess I will stay with my Note 2 and Note 3 into the near future.
            Best wishes

          • Unorthodox

            To be absolutely frank, I have 8 tablets in my house, around 5-6 dumbphones, 4-5 smartphones (not bragging – I just like keeping my electronics forever), and even a working Sony PDA from around Y2K. Only dumbphones and early Android smartphones had swappable batteries, so I don’t quite understand your expectations.

          • maaen

            Well.. I will let you in on a development. ..someone close to me has also been reading my words here and has threatened to get me the new Notee when it comes on the market…. I would rather not get it as a gift but I do not think I will get my way….and someone else told me to keep an eye on any new developments in battery replacement videos on YouTube apertaining to Galaxy Note 8 and 10.1….and the Note 10.1 2014 edition….So that is something I will do.
            I too have a collection of gadgets from over the years…but I like to pass them on to my relatives …but I would much prefer to give them away with a fully working battery…
            But in terms of expectations ….I have some great hopes that Samsung will wake up to the need for giving a decent choice to consumers with regard to removable and user replaceable batteries in their Note tablets…because with a stylus they will have a longer lifespan than any other gadget on the market….because the creative folks on our planet will somehow value these newer gadgets from Samsung more than the Note 1, 2 and 3.
            I really care that Samsung should pay heed to the value of the s.pen and make their NOTE TABLETS of a higher quality because of the factor of the stylus…and higher quality in my books equates with removable batteries….and to make these tablets even more valuable to us all Samsung really needs to have a bus mechanism for micro sd cards so that you can have a line of 2 or three memory cards with a switch system

    • Evertroy

      I’ve been selling tablets in retail since the OG Transformer came out and I have NEVER had a customer ask me if I had any tablets with removable batteries nor complain that any of them didn’t have it. There is no real demand for it, that is why it’s not out there.

      • maaen

        Greetings for Christmas and thank you for replying from your knowledge base and experience.

        I guess I am an oddity(at least one who vocalises my thoughts in places like this)..I guess it will be impossible to convince a behemoth like Samsung to consider the likes of me and give me a NOTE tablet with an easily removable battery.I guess I will have to wait for a saviour.
        Earlier I took a look at You Tube regarding replacing batteries in Note Tablets and I saw a couple of videos about the process of removing and replacing the batteries in the Note 10.1(2013)….I am hoping that a Bright Spark will post a video about replacing batteries in the Note 2014 edition and perhaps also in 12.2 Note Pro.
        I will always live in hope though that Samsung might just bring out a Note tablet soon with a user removable battery.Perhaps it is wishing for the Impossible…whatever .. but thank you for your words.

    • Tay Blair

      I agree, I would prefer any electronic with a removable battery. If it does not have that option, I also will not purchase it. Too many electronics are not being used just because of the battery not able to hold a charge. If you just swap it out, the device is usable again. 100% agree with you

      • maaen

        Thank you Tay… Merry Christmas…thanks for vocalising your point….one can only hope that some caring and poweful individual in high office at Samsung will be reading these words….If only they realised that a happy customer would normally return to buy again from them… and if they would only realise that the silent majority will always vote with their feet.and in a silent way..and if they would further study people’s frustrations in a deeper scientific way they would produce a better product system and also cater to the basic sense of a product….(.and in regard to this point about a tablet I only want to mention Samsung Galaxy Note tablets because of the lovely S-pen…) by not denying the customer access to the battery which is the essential power source and in that regard as important as the tech it is powering.Thanks for the patience with these words from the wilderness of the heart.Get vocal if you care enough…….
        and Happy New Year to you all.

    • DYNK

      yup+1
      if you go to Korea (one of the most difficult critical smartphone markets) all mobiles have removable charger + ext battery charger. it is a must.
      Here in EU or US they just don’t seem to *get it*

      • maaen

        GREETINGS ….Thank you for the news….eyes and ears around the world( Korea in this case)….this is indeed good news….but what about the tablets by Samsung ..especially the Galaxy Note 8 and 10.1 tablets…because they seem to seal up the whole back….and so… do Samsung provide a service to the buyers of tablets about changing batteries…..It would be good to know …and in this part of the world people need to start demanding better …otherwise we will get what they decide to give us…. You know …Samsung needs to make one basic decision. …make the back of the tablet easy to open and allow the battery ti be easily removed even at the cost of an extra millimetre or two …in the long run they will have a more successful product line up….Even the critics of the present day will thank Samsung for making this one basic but massively important decision…The Galaxy Note is a very important product and as a tablet it will grow and grow in importance if Samsung did not follow fashion or an excuse of fashion for slim tablets and actually made customers like me happy once and for all.
        And while they do the above they should also develope the micro Sd serial bus so that we could enjoy having all kinds of libraries accessible to us any where we go….imagine twio or three micro sd cards sitting pretty inside the tablet and we could store our music or books or whatever we so desired…Take care.

  • edpahk

    want. i’ve been waiting for a decent larger android tablet.

  • Fel Pe

    I want a Note 8 2014 edition with 8″ (of course), 2560×1600 (oh yeah), 3GB RAM and SnapDragon 805. I want it before Xmas btw. Thats all. ;P

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    All that real estate and only 32GB of storage. How pathetic and embarrassing!

    • ZeeLobby

      Rofl, if it’s Samsung it’ll come with microSD, also what are you loading on here? The only thing that’ll take up that space fast is if you’re loading your music library on there, or 10 movies…

  • Clark

    2GB of ram is messed up. The Note 3 and Note 10.1 (2014) both have 3GB of ram, and if Note Pro is the high end tablet, it should have 3GB.

    • ZeeLobby

      Other rumors have it at 3GB RAM, just think it’s a slip up here.

  • Steven Spurit Hook

    12″ tablet you mean slablet!
