Looks like Samsung thinks some people don’t find existing 10.1-inch tablet big enough and is preparing to offer this group of people an even bigger device. The Korean company is apparently working on a 12.2-inch Galaxy Note that may be released at some point in the third quarter of this year.
According to ETNews, Samsung Display and Sharp will supply about 2.5 million 12.2-inch panels with 2560×1600 pixels resolution (a la Nexus 10) to Samsung Electronics for its upcoming tablet. It is said that these panels will use Sharp’s IGZO (Indium-Gallium Zinc Oxide) technology which is described as more power-efficient than any other screen technology out there, Sammy’s Super AMOLED series included. S Pen will also come as part of the deal — it’s a Galaxy Note device, after all.
But Samsung may not be alone in this market of huge tablets — earlier we’ve heard that Apple may launch the iPad Maxi to compete with some touch-enabled Ultrabooks. We’ll follow this story closely and get back to you as soon as there’s something new to add. Stay tuned…
