Samsung's next 10-inch Galaxy Tab tablet may have been outted by new FCC filings.

Posted on Thursday, one series of files hosted by the Federal Communications Commission reveal a tablet with the model number SM-T805. The files themselves don't spill too many beans. But that same model number surfaced on a UAProf listing recently uncovered by Sammobile that reveals a few key details, including a 2,560x1,600 display and a shot of Android 4.4 KitKat.

The model number and other tidbits suggest to Sammobile that this could be a high-end Tab tablet, possibly sporting a 10.5-inch display.

A second series of FCC files highlight a Samsung device with the model number SM-T801, which Sammobile believes is a variant of the SM-T805. Assuming the pieces of the puzzle all match up, the 10.5-inch tablet would come in Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE editions.

What of other next generation Tab tablets?

Recent benchmark test results from GFXBench reveal a device with the model number SM-T700 outfitted with a Samsung Exynos processor, an 8.4-inch screen, and a 2,560x1,600 resolution. Also, a 7-inch Samsung device with the model number SM-T230 recently popped up in a listing from the Bluetooth SIG.

A photo of that purported 7-inch model appeared on Wednesday in a tweet from known leaker @evleaks.
