Samsung's biggest ever tablet is so massive it just can't stay under wraps -- not only has the 12-inch Galaxy Note Pro popped up on a huge billboard at the CES tech show in Las Vegas, but its specs and those of a similarly gigantic Tab Pro have leaked online.

The billboard, snapped at the Las Vegas Convention Center by Android Central last night, teases two new 'Pro' tablets, the stylus-centric Note and finger-friendly Tab.

Both will have magnificent 12.2-inch screens with 2,560x1,600-pixel resolutions, according to well-informed Twitter-based leakster @evleaks.

Both will be available in Wi-Fi only and 3G options powered by Samsung's fabled Exynos 5 Octa chip, featuring four cores running at 1.9GHz and four at 1.3GHz. The 4G Note Pro and Tab Pro will have to survive on just a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800. All models will have 3GB of RAM.

Android 4.4 KitKat will run the show throughout the Pro range, and storage options are 32GB or 64GB, presumably expandable. This all tallies with previous leaks from late last year, and would put the Pros at the cutting edge of Android tech.

The Galaxy Tab Pro will apparently also be available in 10.1-inch and 8.4-inch varieties, both with the same better than Full HD resolution and nova-hot chips, but with 2GB of RAM.

Samsung will reveal all at its press conference tonight at 10pm UK time. You can follow CNET's live blog here -- and for a metric tonne of coverage from CES, head to ces.cnet.com.
