This slate will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 12.5-inch display and will be loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, according to its GFXBench database entry.

Next to Samsung, HP is another major player on the tablet market with a few bets placed on really big slates. While not as big as the HP Slate 21 AiO and also appearing to belong to a slightly different niche, the HP Slate 12 Pro has been recently spotted on the notorious GFXBench website.

HP did not confirm this device yet, but these are the specs visible on its GFXBench page:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Display: 12.5-inch touchscreen with "at least 5 finger gesture support" and 1,600X1,200 pixels
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back with autofocus and flash
  • Operating system: Android 4.4.2 KitKat

In addition to the above, the slate is expected to feature a rich set of connectivity capabilities and sensors: WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, pedometer, compass, and more. The HP Slate 12 Pro could be a larger sibling of the existing Slate 8 Pro, which has the same screen resolution, but carries a NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip under the hood.

All these should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being, but we hope to hear more about the Slate 12 Pro soon.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
