Rumor: Samsung looking to launch a 13 inch tablet by the end of the year

Samsung CSC

The Android tablet segment has been flourishing over the past couple of years or so. However, most of the tablets that we see around us is mainly budget oriented and manufacturers are yet to tap into the productivity niche. And a new rumor from Korea suggests that Samsung is looking to bring a 13 inch tablet to the market sometime soon. There’s no word on when exactly this productivity oriented tablet will be unveiled, but it’s being said that we can expect the device to hit the markets before the end of 2014.

That seems unlikely given that we’ve barely heard anything about this device in leaks up until now, although Samsung has always been rumored to be working on a large sized tablet to take on mini notebooks like the MacBook Air and the range of 13 inch Windows Ultrabooks. Either way, we suggest you take this rumor with a pinch of salt as there’s hardly any evidence to back it up at the moment. But a 13 inch Samsung tablet will have a wide appeal in the market, considering the lack of large sized tablets.

It is being said that this tablet will pack an LCD panel instead of Samsung’s proprietary AMOLED display, which could help cut costs to a great extent. Given the size of the device, this device will most likely be targeted towards businesses and educational institutions rather than mainstream consumers.

Would you be interested in a large sized tablet such as this? Let us know.
