AT&T (NYSE:T), one of the leading carriers in the U.S., is reportedly testing a handful of new devices, and one of them is Samsung’s (KRX:005935) Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet, which is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2014.
According to a tipster who goes by the name of @evleaks on Twitter, Samsung’s new Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is likely to be heading to AT&T, carrying the model number SM-P907A. While neither Samsung nor AT&T has made anything official yet, the information from @evleaks cannot be ignored as the tipster has been a source of accurate leaks about Android devices in the past.
As AT&T was the first carrier to offer the original Galaxy Note in the U.S., it will not be a surprise if the carrier does the same with the new 12.2-inch Galaxy Note tablet, SamMobile reported.
Earlier this month, @evleaks revealed on Twitter that AT&T was testing the upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone from Samsung with a high-resolution screen under the model number SM-G900A. Reacting to the leak, SamMobile reported that it could not be inferred that a device's release date is around the corner just because the handset is being tested by a carrier.
According to rumors, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 could feature a 2560×1600 LCD display, 3GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 9,500 mAh battery. The 12.2-inch tablet is also expected to be offered in the standard black and white color options.
Recent rumors also suggested that the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 could be launched by the end of February, and AT&T and other U.S. carriers would likely offer the 4G LTE-enabled model of the device.
In addition to the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Samsung is rumored to launch three other tablets in early 2014, including the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (SM-T320/T325), Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (SM-T520/T525) and Galaxy Tab 3 Lite (SM-T110/T111).
