Signs point to Samsung 12.2-inch Android tablet

While Samsung still manages to captivate us with tablets like the ATIV Q, it’s also been swinging and missing when it comes to some other models, like the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. As such, its whole tablet lineup has felt a little disjointed. Things may be looking better in the future, with a firmer focus on more capable hardware, or at least that’s what we’re thinking about after checking out evidence pointing to work on a 12.2-inch, 2560 x 1600 Android model.

UAProf files point to the existence of at least three variants of this hardware, models SM-P900, SM-P901, and SM-P905, the 3G, WiFi, and LTE versions, respectively. Those files confirm that the tablet runs Android 4.2 and reveal that 2560 x 1600 resolution.

As for the size, that comes from an Indian import/export database, which specifically mentions SM-P905 as having a 12.2-inch display.

If this all sounds a little familiar, it should: we already heard a device like this rumored, and this evidence seems to confirm those claims.

Sure, we already have 10-inch Samsung devices with that resolution (the Nexus 10), but even a 12.2 inches, that’s still a respectable density of 247ppi. If it’s thin and light enough, this one sounds like it could have some real potential.
