The largest tablets manufactured by Samsung are the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2. However, fresh reports reveal that Samsung is working on an even larger tablet of 18.4 inches.
According to Sam Mobile, an 18.4-inch Samsung tablet has been spotted on the import listings and the device has already reached India for the purpose of testing and evaluation. The large-sized tablet is listed as Samsung Tablet PC.
GSM Arena claims that it is too early to predict whether the device will be really launched by Samsung. The listing also reveals once the evaluation process is finished, the tablet will be destroyed. The destruction of the tablet will prevent the spreading of its leaked specifications.
