It’s starting to look like 2015 could be a big year for big-screened tablets. Apple launched its 12.9 inch iPad Pro. Samsung has an 18.4 inch tablet on the way. And now it looks like ZTE is getting ready to join the party with a tablet featuring a 13.7 inch screen.
Specs for a tablet called the ZTE A2016 showed up at the GFXBench website recently, painting a picture of a tablet with a 13.7 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
As PhoneArena points out, ZTE uses the A2015 model number for a Chinese version of the ZTE Axon smartphone, which suggests the A2016 could also be part of the Axon brand of premium devices with mid-range prices.
Before you get too excited, I should point out that GFXBench sometimes has a habit of reporting screen sizes incorrectly. It’s possible that someone was testing an Axon phone with a large screen when they ran the test. But given that big tablets seem to be all the rage these days, it’s certainly possible that ZTE could be building a 13.7 inch model.
