Samsung’s jumbo-sized Galaxy Note 12.2 may have just swung by the FCC


A little earlier this week we brought you our review of the new Galaxy Note 10.1 model, which so far has reigned as the largest member of the Note clan around. That’s probably not going to last forever, thoguh, as we’ve been seeing a number of signs lately pointing to an even larger Galaxy Note tablet, a device that appears to be getting a 12.2-inch display. We’ve heard a little about the name and some possible model numbers, and later saw what appeared to be the same device get its Bluetooth certification and appear in some benchmark tests. Today, the road towards this model finally going official continues onwards, with the tablet emerging at the FCC.

So far, we’ve heard about specs like a 2560 x 1600 display, Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB on-board storage. This FCC paperwork additionally confirms support for cellular data, but we’re not quite sure just what network this tablet’s intended for.

While the basic frequency support aligns with AT&T, the tablet does its LTE on band 5 (850MHz). AT&T doesn’t do LTE on that frequency, and it doesn’t look like many carriers do. That makes this particular model’s ultimate home tough to peg-down, but as we’ve heard of multiple variants, we may yet see one with wireless data support for a major carrier.
