A version of rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 which offers support for 3G connectivity was recently spotted at the FCC. The tablet in the filing is a different variant compared to the LTE-capable Galaxy Note 12.2 that made an appearance at the FCC earlier this month. Such LTE-capable slate had the model number SM-P905. It is also different from what is believed to be a Wi-Fi only variant of the device that was also seen seeking for certification. Said Wi-Fi only variant was listed with the model number SM-P900.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 which has 3G capability, has the model number SM-P901. According to the filing, the SM-P901 supports 850/1900MHz frequencies. The SM-P901 has also been seen previously in Bluetooth certification website.
These details add to the growing list of specifications and features that the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 is expected to have. Some of these are a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, 32GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. As with other devices in the Galaxy Note line, the device will support the Samsung S Pen, which will have its own storage space on the tablet’s top part. An allegedly leaked press photo that surfaced during the early part of September could also give consumers a preview of what the device will look like.
Meanwhile, there is speculation that the device may arrive in time for the holidays, given that it has already passed the FCC.
Apart from the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2, the manufacturer is likewise believed to be preparing a 13.3-inch tablet. Samsung has earlier expressed its optimism in the sales of these larger tablets. According to its estimates, the company may be able to sell 100 million units of these larger devices with displays larger than 10 inches in the coming year.
