Samsung could end up releasing a 13-inch Galaxy Tab model sometime next year.

The company is now working on this larger device in addition to a 12.2-inch Galaxy Note model that will enter into production by the end of this year, according to a new report from Android Authority.

Samsung was originally expected to launch the Windows powered ATIV Q dual-booting Android/Windows laptop/tablet this year and even unveiled it, however, its release was quietly canceled for undisclosed reasons. This new 13.3-inch model could end up replacing it if Samsung decides to release it next year.

Specs and official release dates for the Tab are not available at this time.

The report states that the company hopes to sell 42 million tablets in 2014 and will use this new Surface-like device to complete the task. This will bring Samsung closer to outselling Apple, who currently rules the tablet market.

A 12.2-inch Galaxy Note passed through the FCC earlier this month and is rumored to hit the production line by the end of this year. There is no release date available for the device at this time.

This larger version of the Note will come with a 2560x1600 display, a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front shooter, 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, Android 4.3, JellyBean and LTE support.

The tablet was confirmed to be part of the Note line from the FCC drawings that showed its ability to accommodate the signature S Pen found on most other Galaxy Note models.

These tablets will function more as laptops than typical slates. The larger models will pack more powerful specs and might even come running Windows 8.1 if they are being made to replace the ATIV line.
