Galaxy Note 12.2 passes FCC as Samsung looks toward bigger tablet



Samsung’s next tablet could be the company’s largest yet. Reports indicate that the Korean mobile maker has plans to bring a slate with a 12.2-inch display to market early next year. Seen here passing through the FCC with model number SM-P900, all signs point to the tablet earning a place among Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup.

What will likely launch as the Galaxy Note 12.2 sometime early next year (the January/February convention season could mark its debut) surfaced only recently, but surrounding buzz suggests other than the larger display the device could end up with a familiar hardware compliment. The S-Pen toting tablet will borrow from the build of the Galaxy Note 10.1 204 Edition, if we are to believe initial reports. This could include a 256×1600 display and Snapdragon 800 CPU (or Exynos 5420).

Samsung isn’t the only company expected to introduce an extra-large tablet next year. Rumors also claim that Apple could get in on the act with a 13-inch iPad as analysts see the market segment picking up steam in the wake of Microsoft’s Surface.

    1. Great for stock tickers.

  2. 12.2 tablet? They missed their opportunity. Should have had it all ready to go out the door and debut it on Dec 2nd.

  3. YES!

  4. I just hope the bezel is minimal. That’ll make for a huge tablet should they keep the current ratios.

  5. Lets hope they can keep the weight down.

    1. I imagine it won’t be a problem because current Samsung devices are some of the lightest and thinnest compared to the competition.

      1. Insert “made of plastic” joke here :rollseyes (Happy S3 owner here!)

  6. Niiice. I’m down. I’ll either get this or the Nexus 10. Old-fashioned, I suppose, I like my tablets at least 10 inches. :D

    1. That’s what she said.

      1. Shoulda known that was coming lol

        1. That’s what she said!

          1. You guys wear me out . . .

          2. THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!

  7. I was just thinking today….you know what? Samsung doesn’t have enough devices. What about another tablet of a larger size? And sure enough, here it is…. /s (I bet it has a home button too)


  9. The idea seem legit, since 10.1 tablet does not A4 correctly.

  10. Pfft, behind the times. I already have a 106″ tablet. Doubles as my cellphone. Just released yesterday… has QHD screen, Snapdragon 600 processor with 1GB of ram and a 1200 mAh battery.

    Be jelly.

    1. Released yesterday?

      Wow, have you not heard of jump/edge/next?

  11. I would sell the Note 10.1 2014 edition for this one in a heartbeat

  12. This! Yay for this. I’d be seeing almost triple rainbows if they finally get amoled into a tablet, most especially one this size. Just the idea of it.. yay. Wouldn’t mind seeing stereo front facing speakers either since I’m dreaming.

  13. About time, I’m bout tired of the 10.1 form factor.

        1. Now now, hear him out. Sounds like a tried and true sound business model with no ill effects whatsoever. Color me intrigued!

  14. I’ll pass, hopefully HTC release that dam concept tablet they showed earlier, that thing looked sicker than anything coming from anything coming out for apple, windows and any other android OEM

  15. This would be fantastic for reading comics

  16. Are tablets going to follow phones in the race to get bigger and bigger? When will the madness stop, when tablets weigh as much as laptops and are harder to carry around?
