    According to a report by The Korea Economic Daily that cites industry sources, Samsung is now working on a 12-inch tablet, which will of course be the biggest screen size yet on a Samsung tablet. The report claims that the alleged 12-inch tablet PC is expected to use Samsung display's LCD panel while it is likely to have a higher than full-HD resolution.
    The report also mentions that the exact launch date is not confirmed but the 12-inch tablet PC can be expected as soon as this October.
    Earlier, a report by Digitimes cited sources from the upstream supply chain to claim that both Apple and Samsung are developing tablets with a 12-inch or larger display. The report added that other vendors are not considering entering the segment as 9-inch and 10-inch devices are suffering from poor sales, and only the 7-inch devices are seeing any kind of traction.
    In July, @evleaks had posted the specifications of Samsung SM-P900, a 12.2-inch device that would boast of a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels and be powered by an Exynos Octa 5 processor. The device also supports the S-Pen, Samsung's stylus solution for its Note series tablets and phablets. Another technology site also published specifications of the alleged 12.2-inch variant of the Samsung tablet dubbed as SM-P900. The site suggested that the SM-P900 tablet will run Android 4.2.
    Previously, a report in the Korean media mentioned that Samsung Display and Sharp will supply about 2.5 million 12.2-inch panels to Samsung Electronics for a new device. The report had claimed that the displays would be made by Sharp and will be based on IGZO (Indum-Gallium Zinc Oxide) technology. It said that Samsung was likely to launch the tablet in the third quarter of 2013.

    Another 12-inch tablet to launch recently is the new VOYO A15 Android
    tablet($299) and features an impressive Samsung Exynos 5250 Cortex A15
    processor - 2.0 Ghz as well as a high resolution 1920X1080 IPS Screen.
    It offers Android 4.2.2 - 2GB RAM / 16GB and comes preinstalled with
    Google Play and also works with both Chromecast as well as the new
    Miracast TV - HD wireless system, which is much better than Chromecast
    and doesn't limit the content you display like Chromecast does, and a
    new Miracast HD Wireless adapter($39) that became available this week
    works much more like Apple’s $100+ Airplay Wireless display technology.

    So far, the biggest tablet from the brand measures 11.6 inches. If the 12-inch tablet would be released, the compact PC lineup of the company would be expanded to a range of 7 inches to 12 inches devices. That could also signal another trend in this market segment.
    According to reports, rival Apple Inc is also considering developing larger iPads. Technology observers think that if both Apple and Samsung release larger sized tablets, all other manufacturers would definitely follow suit. Meanwhile, Japan’s Toshiba already announced in June the launch of its 13.3-inch Android tablet, which could possibly be the largest tablet in the market to date.
