12.2 inch Samsung Galaxy Note tablet with 3G on board spotted at the FCC
That Samsung is working on a 12.2-inch Android tablet isn't exactly breaking news. Rumors of such a device have been circulating the web for weeks. In fact, some of its hardware specifications are already known thanks to a benchmark result that surfaced online. However, what we didn't know until today was that a 3G-capable model of Samsung's upcoming slate is in the works as well. How can we be so sure? Well, we found the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 (or whatever its real name turns out to be) at the FCC, labeled as a 3G portable tablet with support for the 850/1900MHz frequencies. The particular model we're referring to is listed as the Samsung SM-P901.
Rumor has it that this 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note tablet will sport a 2560 by 1600 pixel display and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC backed by 3GB of RAM. If accurate, specs like these would instantly rank the slate among the best ones out there once it is released. Further specs are said to include an 8MP camera on the back, 2MP cam in front, 32GB of storage, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 is meant to see the light of day, then an official announcement should come sooner than later. Chances are we might see it on shelves in time for the holiday shopping spree.
