Samsung’s FCC-confirmed 12.2-inch Galaxy Note tablet is said to hit production by the end of 2013, although a release date is not yet in sight.

The news comes from Taiwanese website DigiTimes, and it’s based on “Taiwan-based supply chain makers,” although the publication is not always right with its predictions.

The 12.2-inch tablet has already passed through the FCC, and it’s rumored to pack some interesting specs, although nothing is officially official just yet.

The device will reportedly have a 2560 x 1600 display, 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and LTE support (the cellular version).

The tablet may very well be included in the Note line of smartphones and tablets, as FCC drawings indicate that the device could house an S Pen stylus, which is a characteristic for Note-branded Android devices made by Samsung.

We have no idea how much an oversized tablet will cost, or when it will ship to consumers, but we’re certainly going to keep tabs on the 12.2-inch Galaxy tablet rumor mill for you!

      Will it have a slot for Micro SD? ‘Cause some companies say there’s no space in their tables.

    The fate of the devices would be decided by its price..

    If priced attractively and has an micro sd card slot and a grt design ( :O )then I think this could become a hot new product

    Why is it consider powerful when the same damm specs are used for the Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1. Seriously, wtf…they ought to increase the specs.

      I dont think more horsepower should be needed to run every app on the play store….

    Can’t wait to see the pics of folks using this as a phone and holding it like a boombox.

    Really though, I can see Samsung going even bigger with 14″, 16″ and maybe 18″ devices to compete with bigger laptops.

    Samsung, I need a 55″ tablet, make it happen! I’m sure I can carry it and use it with one hand no problem

    I pray this tablet doesn’t use the octacore Exynos processor, I’d much rather snapdragon 800 or tegra 4. Having two quad core processors and labeling it octacore is a bad idea, when the processors hand off processes between each other, it gets a little sloppy. Also, my galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition had the worst quality control I’ve ever experienced. Samsung really needs to inspect their products and make sure they’re flawless before shipping them. My tablet had scratches on the back, loose speaker grills, and the bezel creaked when pressure was applied. This wasn’t just one model, I’ve gone through 4 of them, 16GB/32GB on both Amazon and Best Buy stocks. I’d buy the ipad but I really need the active digitizer. If Apple put out the ipad pro with an active digitizer using wacom technology I’d buy it in an instant, I’d even pay $650-900 for it I really don’t give a damn at this point. I used to love Samsung but their products are made of cheap materials and the quality control on the 2014 galaxy note 10.1 was horrible.
