Going back as early as June we’ve heard several reports that Samsung is readying a 12-inch tablet that will possibly be part of the Note series. Since then, there has been continued whispers about such a device, and now it looks like the large-screened tablet might have even passed through the FCC.

A new FCC filing for the Samsung SM-P905 reveals a tablet with a diagonal size of 14.1-inches, which means the display could likely be somewhere right around 12 inches. The information also details various Wi-Fi and mobile broadband standards supported by the device.


Interestingly enough, a concept photo of the back of the device also shows a notch that is likely the S-Pen holder. This gives further credence to the idea that this behemoth of a tablet is in fact a new 12-inch Samsung Galaxy Note tablet.

While the FCC information doesn’t appear to reveal any other solid details on the tablet, other past rumors help us piece together the rest. For starters, we’ve already seen several rumors and leaks that suggest the tablet’s resolution will be 2560×1600.


As for the tablet’s other specs, a recent AnTuTu sighting indicates the new tablet with have a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, an 8MP rear cam, 2MP front cam, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 12.2-inch display and will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.

With all these leaks it’s pretty clear Samsung is planning something, but until we have official information about Samsung’s plans for the SM-P905, speculation is still advised.

We have to admit that the idea of an over-sized Note tablet sounds pretty cool, especially for artists and other creative types out there. What do you think, would you be interested in a Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2, or is the form fact just too big?
