Samsung’s next-gen Galaxy Note tablet has appeared in apparent leaked image. It’s identified as the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro tablet.
The image shows a very thin tablet, with a camera module on the back and a body that’s covered by skin-like material. However, there’s no way to see if this is really a Samsung device because the descriptions aren’t readable.
However, it’s interesting to note that a rendering of what could be the Galaxy Note Pro shares several elements in common with the device leaked, such as the left side.
Samsung hasn’t yet made any comment about the rumors, but it’s expected to arrive soon, probably at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 (CES) in Las Vegas, scheduled for January 7 to 10.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a tablet with a 12.2-inch display and can also be used with the well-known fountain pen nib, so it will be a product focused on productivity. The rumor mill has been churning about the device for months so its debut in stores doesn’t seem a surprise.
According to the Korean site moveplayer, the tablet is codenamed MS-P900 and technical specifications similar to those of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, although it would be equipped with a larger battery (9500 mAh) and Android 4.4 KitKat. Given the large 12.2-inch panel, it would be a heavy device, about 750 grams.
Previous rumors suggested that Samsung had plans to release the tablet in two colors, namely black and white, alongside other devices such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Pro, the Galaxy Tab 8.4 and the Galaxy Tab Pro 3 Lite. So there’re good chances that Samsung could officially announce it at CES 2014.
