Following the track of Sony (Xperia Z ultra), it appears like Samsung is also working on a Android device with 6 inch plus display. The rumors started pouring in after a new handset codenamed Samsung SM-T255 has been spotted on GFXBench database boasting 6.2 inch HD 1280×720 pixel display. Since Samsung already has its Mega lineup of smartphones with 5.9-inch and 6.3-inch displays, it  could tie in with the Galaxy Tab series of devices.

The GFXBench listing tipped that the Samsung SM-T255 device is going to run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean platform powered with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor under its hood. The device coming packed with 1.5 GB of RAM,16 GB of internal storage capacity,8 MP primary camera with auto focus, flash and FHD video recording coupled with 2 MP front-facing snapper and connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS.

Details such as lack of SIM card slot and model number were revealed from the benchmark database. Also, the Wi-Fi Alliance certification has let out the product description and it claims that it is not a phablet, instead it is a small size tablet device.

As of now, there is no clear picture on the announcement and pricing of the tablet. Although, Zauba tracker caught the SM-T255 visiting India back in March and later estimated the 6.2 incher tablet at  $465(INR 28,065),  which is way more compared to the GTab 4 7.0 and Galaxy Mega 6.3.
