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.
