The South Korean based electronics giant Samsung is reportedly preparing an Android super-sized device with the code name Tahoe, containing midrange hardware according to a site on the net that is famous for Samsung rumors.
The huge tablet would make a dwarf of the current Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with a screen of 12.2-inches said insiders.
Samsung might increase the ante for this next tablet if the recent chatter across the Internet is to be taken seriously.
Samsung continues to fight to keep its lead amongst brands with Android on both the tablet and smartphone front. A huge tablet would not just create its own space, but may also create another new segment of users such as for offices and schools,
It is reported that the new device would run on the Android 5.1 Lollipop and pack a 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor that runs on 1.6GHz. The memory is said to hold 2GB with an internal storage capacity of 32GB. More storage if needed would come by a card slot microSD that could allow for as much as 128GB more for movies, games and e-books.
Like the more traditionally size flatboards, the model reportedly in preparation of 18.4 inches is alleged to have two cameras, with one being an 8-megapixel sensor on the backside and a modest sized 2.1-megapixel camera on the front side. The battery is reported to be a 5,700mAh.
In a big twist, and possibly to maintain the costs lower, the display might come in just 1,920×1,080. That is an acceptable resolution on a tablet of 10 inches, but images might look very grainy on the screen that is close to 20 inches in size.
The Samsung Galaxy Pro Tab 12.2 has a screen display of 2,560×1,600.
No indication was given as to when the electronics giant might introduce such a huge tablet, but if the flatboard is in the works, the annual IFA electronics show is the next large industry event and is held in early September.
