Report: Samsung’s 12.2-inch Galaxy Note to go into production by end of 2013

Samsung’s 12.2-inch tablet could go into production by the end of 2013, according to a new report published by DigiTimes. The report specifically talks about the tablet’s screen, saying that Samsung has adopted a film-based capacitive touch solution provided by China-based Shenzhen O-film Tech, and that the company hopes its global brand recognition and marketing resources will prompt other manufacturers to follow suit with similar large-screen tablets.

Whether that will actually happen is a debate for another time, as market trends have shown that most people prefer smaller tablets, usually 7 to 8-inches, though a 12.2-inch Galaxy Note with a stylus could be a boon for those focused on productivity rather than entertainment on their tablets (not that a 12.2-inch screen would be bad for watching videos and browsing, but the large form factor would cause a lot of issues with handling).

The specs of the Galaxy Note 12.2 were earlier revealed to include a 2560×1600 display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean; a launch should take place in the first quarter next year, though that’s something that isn’t confirmed as of now.

Any of our readers looking forward to the 12.2-inch Galaxy tablet?

Yes ! I’ve got the 10.1 and for taking notes in class it is a bit small and unprecise. 12.2 would be perfect. I’ve been waiting for long now. Hope it is coming soon (powerpoint, pdf, note taking this is awsome)
For handling it is not really a problem, you already need 2 hands on a 10″ screen so as 12″ !


Of all the weird experiments Samsung makes, this is one I’d consider buying.
