There has been talk lately within the display manufacturing industry that some tablet makers are looking towards putting out devices with 12-inch or larger screens in order to differentiate themselves from an over-saturated 7- and 10-inch tablet market. It seems that there is some credence to that rumor and Samsung might be the first to the scene.
The Korean manufacturer has lately been trying, somewhat desperately, to come out as first with new kinds of devices, such as the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the Galaxy Round curved smartphone. It is no surprise then that it would once again try to beat out the competition by being the first to out a larger than normal Android tablet. Earlier this week, such a tablet, with the model number SM-P905V, made its way to the Bluetooth SIG. While that didn't give us much of a clue about the device, other than its North American geographic availability, this new certification does.
Seen at the FCC was a filing for a Samsung tablet, this time with a plain model number of SM-P905. The documents reveal a tablet with a diagonal size of 14.1 inches, which suggests a 12.1 inch display. Diagrams also show a slot for a stylus, which could mean that this tablet will be inducted into Samsung's Galaxy Note S Pen line. These confirm that specs that were also sighted on AnTuTu for the SM-P905 that revealed a resolution of 1600x2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage.
These appearances in various certification and benchmark sites doesn't mean that this overgrown Galaxy Note will be having an official unveiling any time soon, so don't hold your breath if you're one of those interested in the device. But if the tablet does arrive, some believe that the SM-P905V label might mean that it will be heading to Verizon first.
