Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 in the pipeline?

Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 in the pipeline?While smartphones are generally getting bigger, many tablets are going smaller, with the Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire and iPad mini all finding success around the 7-8in mark.

Still, the trend hasn’t killed off rumours of a larger iPad, and similarly we’re hearing word of something called the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2.

Amusingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note tablets (as opposed to phablets) were written off at one point after the decidedly lacklustre Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Little did we know, the South Koreans were putting together another attempt in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition, and it looks like one sexy multitasking beast.

As such, we’re happy to hear rumours of a Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2. As the name suggests, it’d house a gargantuan 12.2 display. Imagine four Samsung Galaxy Note 3 displays stuck together and you’re in the right vicinity.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 resolution is tipped to be 2560 x 1600, putting it on par with the Google Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition.

Other rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, an 8MP/2MP camera combo, Jelly Bean Android 4.3, and at least 32GB internal storage.

On the plus side, the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 would be ideal for consuming content like video, but at the expense of portability – not to mention the actual expense of such a device.

No word on a Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 release date just yet, but we’re thinking a CES or MWC launch would make sense, what with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition having only recently gone on sale.

Price? Will come down quickly for those large screens. Look at phablets and large phones you can now buy fir under £200...
