Supply chain sources claim Samsung is working on a 12 inch tablet

12 inch Samsung tablet

We have heard about Samsung’s plans to launch a 12 inch Android tablet in the past. And those rumors appear to be gaining more traction according to a new report. Taiwanese source Digitimes¬†cites supply chain sources claiming that a large sized Samsung tablet is in the works. This tablet apparently was supposed to be co developed by Google, but given Google’s focus on the 7 inch tablet segment, Samsung will be developing the tablet on its own.¬†There’s no word on when this could come to fruition, but we don’t see it happening anytime this year.

The tablet market is currently dominated by the iPads and 7 inch tablets, so it will be interesting to see how the market will react to a bigger tablet. It is being said that the notebook market could be impacted by such tablets, as most entry level notebooks/ultrabooks feature a 11 inch screen. Perhaps Samsung could try to bring in a 12 inch Galaxy Note tablet as rumored, which would certainly spice things up in the tablet segment.
