Rumors tackle Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 hardware specs, launch plans


An extra-large Samsung Android tablet has been a long time coming; as far back as July, we’ve been seeing evidence suggesting that Samsung was at work on a 12.2-inch tablet, and in the months that have followed, we’ve tracked the hardware getting closer and closer to its launch date. Last month, that meant looking through its FCC paperwork, and most recently we’ve heard a little about how the model might arrive, with the possibility that it could become available in mid-February as the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Today we look to a few hardware specifics, and hear some new rumors about launch plans.

We’d already heard that the tablet might run a Snapdragon 800, and the mention here of the slate being powered by a chip operating at 2.4GHz sure seems to fit with that. We see that 3GB RAM figure return, and also learn that the tablet may pack a big ol’ 9500mAh battery. While that should help with how much action you can get out of the 12.2-inch 2560 x 1600 display, it’s also going to add to the weight – and we’re hearing the Note Pro 12.2 could top the scales at 1.7 pounds.

As for that launch, we still might be looking to mid-February as far as the start of sales goes, but this source suggests that Samsung could formally launch the tablet a month earlier, bringing it along to show off at CES 2014.
