Since the rumors claiming that Samsung will unveil a 12.2-inch tablet in October expired, new reports from Taiwan are slowly pushing the release date into 2014. This time there is little information to talk about, but it seems natural enough for the new slate to become public at CES 2014 in January.

Right now, Digitimes cites sources from Taiwanese supply chain makers who report that Samsung's film-based capacitive touch solution to be used for the rumored 12.2-inch device is provided by O-film Tech "with production to kick off at the end of 2013."

The same sources claim that Samsung's move into the 12-inch zone will force its competitors to follow suit as soon as possible, but that's highly unlikely since convertible ultrabooks/tablets are already gaining ground and a simple 12.2-inch tablet will not be as easy to sell as anticipated by some.

As previous rumors suggest, the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet will probably use a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (no micro SD slot, it seems) and an impressive resolution of 2,560X1,600 pixels.

The device could come preloaded with KitKat (or at least be able to update to it), but pricing and availability are still unkown. We will keep you posted as new information on this topic arises.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
