While recent rumours suggested that the alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet might be launched soon, a new report claims that the device will be going into mass production only by the end of 2013.
According to a new report by Digitimes that cites sources from the Taiwan-based supply chain makers, Samsung has adopted a film-based capacitive touch solution, which is largely provided by China-based Shenzhen O-film Tech, for the rumoured Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet. The report further suggests that the alleged tablet will only enter mass production by end of this year. It also speculates that Samsung's attempt for a bigger display (12.2-inch) tablet may be followed by other manufacturers in 2014.
Considering that the alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet will be going for mass production later this year, the tablet can be expected to be introduced at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2014.
