Apple fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the company’s giant iPad Pro that’s been swimming through the rumor mill for years now, but Samsung is already preparing its answer for the new tablet that will likely be aimed at pros and enterprise use.

Samsung is working on a giant 18.4-inch tablet to be used in living rooms, offices, or schools, according to a new rumor from SamMobile that claims the humungous new tablet has been code named ‘Tahoe.’

The bigger-than-big Samsung tablet will reportedly run Android 5.1 and feature a TFT LCD screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which would be fairly underwhelming next to the iPad Pro’s 2,732 × 2,048 pixels display.

Other features on the Tahoe tablet include an octa-core 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 8 MP front camera, and a 2.1 MP rear camera. The projected released date hasn’t been leaked yet, but the device’s footprint will likely measure 451.8 mm wide, 275.8 mm tall, and 11.9 mm thick.

For Samsung tablet lovers who want to get real-work done on a giant tablet, the company is also rumored to be working on a 12-inch tablet with an HD display, 4GB of RAM, and a special stylus.
