Samsung appears to be preparing refreshed versions of its large-screen Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 Android tablet for launch across multiple regions.
Recently submitted certification filings reveal Samsung is developing new Tab Pro 12.2 models tailored for different global markets. The submissions confirm an international push is underway.
Among the new model numbers uncovered:
- SM-P905 – An international variant headed to Europe
- SM-P905V – A North American version
- SM-P905M – For South America
- SM-T905 – Another international model also Europe-bound
The SM-T905 and SM-X905 variants notably add LTE cellular connectivity, while the other models appear to be Wi-Fi only. Samsung uses “SM-X” to denote LTE-enabled devices.
One additional SM-P901 model surfaced in a Europe-focused filing. But there was no corresponding SM-T901 with LTE support, indicating no cellular version of that tablet is Europe-bound.
These filings strongly suggest Samsung aims to launch refreshed Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 slates across numerous global markets. The new versions will give buyers expanded connectivity options, with LTE models providing mobile data speeds.
Samsung launched its first 12.2-inch Galaxy Tab Pro line back in 2014. But the landscape has changed, with consumers demanding constant updates. More connectivity choices also allow devices to better suit different use cases.
The certifications reveal no other hardware changes beyond the possible addition of LTE radios. However, expect the new Tab Pros to pack more up-to-date internals when they eventually launch.
With model numbers certified for Europe, North America, and South America, Samsung has its eye on broad geographical launch plans. Specific release timeframes are still unknown.
But these newly uncovered certifications confirm Samsung is preparing its next volley in the large Android tablet space. Refreshed 12.2-inch Galaxy Tab Pro slates are indeed nearing launch across much of the globe.
Stay tuned for more details on specs, pricing, and availability as Samsung’s Tab Pro sequel inches closer to its widespread international release.
