Samsung may be planning a 12-inch version of its Samsung Galaxy Note device, due to be announced in Q3 this year to compete with a rumoured larger iPad.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 12 could pack a 12.2-inch screen with the ultra-high 2560 x 1600p resolution, equating to a 247ppi image density.
According to a Korean publication that is known for Samsung and LG leaks, its high-resolution large panel will be supplied by Sharp and use the thin and energy efficient IGZO screen technology.
Expected to be announced by the South Korean manufacturer in Q3, other specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Note 12 are still unknown. The Samsung Galaxy Note 12 will feature the iconic Samsung S-Pen stylus that accompanies the existing Note products like the Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 8.0.
The largest current Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has a 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. It packs a 10.1-inch WXGA LCD display with 1280 x 800p resolutions.
Running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a little outdated now so could do with an upgrade, especially a hi-res larger tablet.
What’s also interesting is that the Korean source also suggested that Apple will be bringing a larger iPad to the market around the same time Samsung is supposedly launching the Galaxy Note 12.
No further information has been given about the larger iPad, including any hint of a screen size, but this is the first we are hearing about such a device.
Samsung has a London-based event that is occurring on June 20 at Earls Court. Although we doubt we’ll hear anything on the 12-inch Samsung Galaxy Note then, TrustedReviews will be there to bring you all the news.
