Following the Galaxy S4, Samsung will launch a variety of new Android devices of all sizes, including a larger Samsung Galaxy Fonblet that we’ve heard about earlier this year.
A new report reveals that the device will be a tablet, not a smartphone as it was initially believed. Japanse site Ameblo has discovered the Fonblet hiding in plain sight, on the company’s download support page (see image below). However, we have not been able to replicate the search at this time.
The same source says the Fonblet will sport a 6.3-inch display, as initially rumored. The Galaxy Note 3 was also said to sport a 6.3-inch display, although more recent rumors claim that the third-generation Note will come with a smaller screen, at 5.9-inch.
When the Galaxy S4 was officially unveiled, we spotted an unexpected accessory for the handset that supports devices up to 6.3-inch displays, the Game Pad. Back then, it was believed that the Galaxy Note 3 will come in such a size, but it looks like the Fonblet may be the better candidate.
Despite being officially listed as a tablet on Samsung’s site, the Fonblet may sport phone capabilities too, since we’re looking at least at three different versions, all sporting cellular capabilities, as follows: GT-I9200 (GSM,) GT-I9205 (LTE/WCDMA) and GT-I9208 (TD-SCDMA/GSM) – of course, we’re yet to officially confirm that that’s the Foneblet’s family of model numbers, but this isn’t the first time we spotted that one of them, GT-I9205.
As for those cell phone features, it wouldn’t be that surprising to see them in the Foneblet, would it? After all, an even bigger Samsung tablet comes with phone features as well, the 8-inch Galaxy Note 8. And the competition has something similar as well, the 7-inch Asus Fonepad.
Samsung is yet to unveil the Galaxy Fonblet, and we have no idea when it will be officially unveiled, so stick around for more details.

Would be a great alternative for the budget consumer.. Smaller size, tablet functions and phone call functions..
Please tell me Fonblet is just a code name.
asus fonepad anyone?
Personally, I’d rather see the new 11.5 inch size in a Galaxy Note with full phone service. THAT would be my ideal.
Current Notes have excellent speaker phones, so I could just use it like that and never have to worry about holding it to my head.
I don’t like WiFi only units, and want phone service, so why not have a real phone, as well.
Plenty of room to make it with nice stereo front facing speakers, like the Samsung Nexus 10 has but better quality.
this is what i have been waiting for since 2001, eeeha !
Fonblet is suuuch an ugly hideous wanna be hybrid word .. People – STOP IT !!
