Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 specs reportedly confirmed. Galaxy Grand Lite to be called Grand Neo?
We have new info on two of Samsung’s upcoming Android devices: a high-end tablet and an alleged affordable handset.

The tablet is the often-rumored Galaxy Note Pro. SamMobile today reportedly managed to confirm most of its specs, and has benchmark screenshots as proof.

As indicated before, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro seemingly sports a 12.2 inch display with 2560 x 1600 pixels. It appears to be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and SamMobile says it will come with a new, "more unique" tablet UI - albeit without providing details on exactly what this means. Other features: 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and an IR blaster.

The processor inside the Galaxy Note Pro looks to be a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 (8974-AA) - the same found in the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, LG Nexus 5, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and other high-end devices released in 2013.

The Note Pro that’s been benchmarked is the SM-P905 LTE-capable model. Samsung should also launch a SM-P900 Wi-Fi-only version. Moreover, we recently heard that AT&T will carry its own Galaxy Note Pro, model number SM-P907A.

As you’ll see in he screenshots posted below, the Galaxy Note Pro scored only a tad higher than the Galaxy Note 3 in AnTuTu. However, this is likely because the new tablet is currently "running experimental test software."

As for the affordable handset we mentioned at the beginning of the article, this is called Galaxy Grand Neo (according to SammyHub). The website says that its features include a 5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and Android 4.3. These are similar to the rumored features of the Galaxy Grand Lite, so we’re thinking that "Grand Neo" is just a different name for the Grand Lite. Of course, only time will tell if we're right.

Samsung may officially announce the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 at MWC 2014 in Barcelona (24 - 27 February), possibly alongside the Galaxy Grand Neo / Lite, and other new tablets and smartphones. It will be an extremely busy year for the South Korean giant, and we're looking forward to seeing how (and if) it's going to increase its domination of the mobile device market.

Same can be said for Nokia Lumia Devices.

Before anyone decides to call me a Fanboy/hater. I own a Lumia 1020(Workjk phone), Note 2 and a iPhone 5. So clearly I am objective and not a fan boy.

Mate...really... why do we need this and what does pro stands for ?! What can I do extra with this that I can't do with a nexus 10 or an Asus infinity..hell even a nexus 7. Pro should stand for haswell and office and stuff..not for a 12 inch android tablet. I have a feeling we will have decent haswell tablets next year and this will become a gimmick.

at least the note series has more features you can use from s-pen.. ever heard of s-pen?? no?? that's why you never know what the difference between the note series than any other tablets.. now just shut up hater..

Look...calm down...no one hates nothing. I was talking about real productivity...not the s pen...for my needs that still is a gimmick and I know a lot of people with notes (satisfied people) not using that.
I WAS MAKING a dif point. I can do so much with an android tablet..even if it's a note, nexus, Xperia u name it. In the end they do pretty much the same...( multimedia based) and not so much productivity.
But just like always samsung boys need to show the world how brainwashing works...

Cant wait to see what sony has to offer for 2014. I think the tab Z is the best android tablet of 2013.

2560 x 1600 pixels vs 320 dpi = 9.4" display

You are mixing up DPI and PPI.

DPI marks density (text size), PPI marks pixel size.

a 5 inch, 480x800 pixel display is gonna be horrendous

Won't be horrendous, but it will indeed be disappointing for those comparing it to other mid-range phones, like the Moto G or Optimus F7. I have an Atrix HD, and like those, it's 1280x720, and looks great even by the high standards set by 1080p phones like the S4 and Nexus 5.

All resolutions aside, the rest of the specs seem solid for a mid-range.
