Samsung may become the first tech company to offer a 12.2-inch tablet.
Sources from Taiwanese supply chain manufacturers speaking to the Digitimes said that the electronics giant “has been developing 12.2-inch tablets and adopt[ing] a film-based capacitive touch solution”.
The new touchscreen technology is rumoured to be provided by the Chinese tech company Shenzhen O-film Tech.
The production of the big-screen tablets is predicted to begin at the end of this year.
“With its advantage of in-house memory, panels and assembly as well as global brand reputation and marketing resources, Samsung's initiative to offer large-size tablets may cause other vendors to follow suit in 2014,” added the sources.
