Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 for Verizon Spotted at Bluetooth SIG

Galaxy Note 12.2 leak

The alleged Galaxy Note 12.2 has been making headlines since September, though the device hasn’t been officially announced yet. We first saw leaked images of the massive tablet on Sept. 2, and then shortly after that it passed through the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) with the SM-P901 model number. It recently passed through the Bluetooth SIG again, though this time we’re learning that it’s likely headed to Verizon Wireless.

The Bluetooth SIG doesn’t treat us to any new images, though it does carry a slightly tweaked product number, likely in reference to its Verizon launch: SP-P905V. The change in SKU is probably a requirement to reflect its LTE capabilities, and the “V” seems to point to Verizon Wireless. Of course this is all speculation until Verizon makes it official — a carrier can scrap a product launch any time it sees fit — though we wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit store shelves this holiday season.

We presume that the Note 12.2 will carry over all of the features of the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), just with a larger screen. That means Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, Samsung’s custom TouchWiz user interface, an S Pen, an IR blaster and more. Hopefully we hear something official soon.
