The other day, GizBot reported that Apple may plan to release a 13-inch iPad sometime next year. Now the South Korean giant Samsung is said to have similar plans, and one could probably see a 12.2-inch tablet in the near future.
Earlier this month, it was revealed Samsung might be working on a high-end tablet with a whooping 2560 x 1600 resolution. The tablet said to be known as Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus, according to multiple reports.
Codenamed SM-P900, the rumored tablet was spotted on Samsung site under User Agents Profiles. Later Japanese blog RB MEN revealed three variants of leaked SM-P900: SM-P900 - 3G, SM-P901 - Wi-Fi, and SM-P905 - LTE.

Now the latest leak in regards to Samsung's forthcoming 12.2-inch tablet reveals Indian connection( via Zauba). Samsung might have tested SM-P905 at its Bangalore based R&D center. A closer looks the data base hints at similar sounding codename SM-P900. Currently, the tablet is for testing and evaluation purpose. So there is no chance to see the device to be announced at IFA Berlin. Whether the tablet comes with S Pen or not, is yet another question. Thus, it is too early to call this tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
Samsung has recently announced a 10-inch version of Galaxy Tab 3. The Intel powered tablet is yet to announce in the Indian market, while the 8 and 7-inch versions have been launched.
