Techno Buffalo reports that the Korean powerhouse has big plans for this year, which includes newer models of the Galaxy Note and new line for the Galaxy Tab series. Samsung is slated to release tablets ranging from 7-8 inch to a larger 10.1-inch model and a much larger 12-inch model.

The soon to be released devices have been coded depending on its size: "AS," which refers to Samsung's upcoming tablets with smaller screens and "AL", which refers to tablets with relatively bigger screen sizes. Apparently, the "AS" models will be those following the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, while the "AL" models will be the sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1.

Report say that the Galaxy Tab AS Plus SM-P350/351 is speculated to be a 7-inch or 8-inch mid-range slate might belong to the series of the Samsung Galaxy Note tablet. On the other hand, the Galaxy Tab AL Plus SM-P550/551 is believed to be a 10 to 12-inch mid-ranger which comes from the same line.

Speculations also say that since the current Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy Note Pro tablets have SM-600 and SM-900 model numbers, it is believed that the first model number for each tablet listed (like the SM-P550) is the Wi-Fi only version, while the second number indicates the cellular variant of the tablet.

Tech Radar's report also says that all of Samsung's upcoming devices will have the Android 5.0 Lollipop as its platform. There is also no confirmation if the rumoured tablets will be unveiled the World Mobile Congress to be held in Barcelona in March. In addition, the tech magnate is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 and a new round-faced smartwatch at said big tech event.

The new tablets are expected to launch in the second and fourth quarter of the year with Android 5.0 update out of the box. Samsung has not released any details confirming the reports.
