In The Leak: Samsung preparing a 12.2-inch mega-tablet.

share on:
Samsung’s expanding its expansionism by creating a super-sized tablet, according to a rumour out of Taiwan. The Korean company is taking its successful screen-increasing phone strategy and applying it to slates, according to Digitimes, by making a 12.2-inch tablet.

The mega-tab will go into production towards the end of the year, sources in the Taiwanese supply chain reckon, with a new film-based capacitive touch layer from China’s Shenzhen O-film Tech.

Samsung’s been at the forefront of screen inflation with its ever-expanding Galaxy S series and gigantic Galaxy Notes — phones so big people started calling them ‘phablets’.

Its current tablets include the 8- and 10-inch Galaxy Tabs and the Galaxy Note 10.1, a stylus-focused high-end slate that slammed down in the UK recently for £480. That considerable sum bags you some top-end componentry, however, with a 2,560×1,600-pixel screen, an eight-core chip and 3GB of RAM — not to mention a snazzy leather-effect back.

 

Are you reading this on your measly 10-inch tablet and thinking, “I wish I had 2.2 more inches of screen real estate”? Is Samsung’s super-sizing strategy getting silly? Expand your mind in our comments section below.
