Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 hits FCC, screen size looking confirmed


Samsung’s got a bunch of new tablets coming up in the new year, and only just yesterday we were talking about how we might like to see them arrive. One of the models we’ve been hearing rumored would represent a new screen size for the Galaxy Tab lineup, the Tab Pro 8.4. While we still don’t have a lot of important details about the hardware, today we see some strong signs for its existence, as the tablet gets its FCC certification.

Samsung model SM-T320 just dropped off its testing paperwork, showing Bluetooth and WiFi support only. The FCC docs give us the general dimensions of the tablet, but the juicy bit comes when we run that model number through India’s import database, where the device is clearly described as having an 8.4-inch display.

The big question’s going to be resolution, and while that “Pro” name has us hoping for some 1080p action, Samsung has a bad habit of skimping on res for its tablet panels; we’d love to see this model break from tradition. In any case, we have a feeling we’ll be finding out soon, with Samsung almost sure to announce some of these new tablets (including the Pro 8.4) at either CES or MWC.
