Presumed Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet gets benchmarked, Bluetooth certified

Rumors about an extra-large Samsung tablet stretch back to the spring, when we first heard that the company might be working on a 12.2-inch goliath. Over the summer, evidence started piling up for this device with its high-res 2560 x 1600 display, and we spotted a few model numbers: SM-P900, SM-P901, and SM-P905. Then in early September, a possible image of the tablet appeared, supposedly carrying the name Galaxy Note 12.2. Today we see this guy pop up yet again, with the tablet surfacing in some benchmark results and showing up in the Bluetooth SIG database.

This time, we’re looking at models SM-P905 and SM-P905V. The AnTuTu benchmark data shows the resolution we expect, and confirms specs like a Snapdragon 800 SoC, 32GB storage, and 3GB of RAM. The Bluetooth stuff doesn’t reveal anything quite so interesting, but does serve as another marker along the way towards this model’s release.

Speaking of that, just how will this tablet launch? While that name Galaxy Note 12.2 has been floating around, is it set in stone? At first glance, the model numbers here might give you pause ā€“ most previous Note-series models have carried the letter ā€œNā€ in their designations. Or at least, that used to be Samsung’s modus operandi, but we saw it adopt the same SM-P prefix with this year’s Note 10.1 models. So, yes, it’s looking pretty likely that this will be another Note.
