Thanks to benchmarking specialist AnTuTu, we now know that the plus-size slate could boast an impressive set of hardware specifications, including a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB RAM.
The Galaxy Note 12.2 will also reportedly run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and pack an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixels front camera. While the tablet should have at least 32GB internal storage with 3GB RAM and measure in at 12.2 inches, much will be expected of the screen resolution. Benchmarks show that it consists of 1,600 x 2,560 pixels. Considering the size of the tablet, we should expect a pixel density as sharp as the top 10-inch models, if not more so.
In terms of performance, the tablet scored a staggering 35,901 points in AnTuTu Benchmarks, and it also has been spotted in BluetoothSIG under the model number “SM-P905”, where it received its Bluetooth certification.
It’s not clear when we might see the Galaxy Note 12.2 make its debut, especially since the company just started selling 2014’s edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1. However, Samsung is a fan of releasing tablets and phones of multiple sizes, so a number of potential launch venues spring to mind. As is the case with every new year, the first few months of 2014 will give way to CES and Mobile World Congress. Then again, Samsung could host its own Unpacked event or simply shoot out a press release.
