Looking back, we’ve been speculating about at colossal 12.2in tablet from South Korea’s Samsung since July this year.
More recently, we were told to expect a host of suitably impressive internals, while we appear to have settled on the moniker Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2. Now we’re told that production is imminent.
The latest Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 news comes from hit-and-miss DigiTimes, and while we’d normally recommend eating a bag of salt with those guys, the incredibly brief two-paragraph article (which credits “Taiwan-based supply chain makers”) seems to jive with what we’ve been hearing to date.
More specifically, the sources say Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 production will start at the "end of 2013".
Paragraph two suggests that other manufacturers will follow suit in 2014, though to be fair to Apple in particular, a larger iPad has been rumoured for the age of a raccoon.
Proposed Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 specs include a resolution of 2560 x 1600, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 8MP/2MP cameras, 32GB internal storage, Jelly Bean Android 4.3, and stylus compatibility.
On the software side of things, we assume the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 would boast all the fancy multitasking features recently debuted on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
The jury’s still out on when the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 will launch exactly. If not this side of Christmas, CES 2014 would probably be a safe bet.
