There have been rumors of a possible 12.2-inch “iPad Pro” for ages now, and a new video from YouTube user Canoopsy offers a glimpse of what that might look like — comparing the giant-sized tablet the current iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, and recent iPhones.

While Apple isn’t the first company that would “go big” with its tablet (Samsung has its GALAXY NotePRO 12.2, for instance), the idea of a larger iPad frankly has us salivating. And given the success Apple has had with its “phablet” iPhone 6 Plus, it would be surprising if Apple was feeling any different.

Check out the video after the jump:

According to previous reports, the iPad Pro’s 12.2-inch LCD display will be powered by a new A9 processor, compared to the A8X used in the iPad Air 2. It has further been suggested that a larger iPad may boast improved stereo audio and a thinner form factor somewhere between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Other less believable rumors have claimed that the iPad Pro may run both OS X and iOS, or even feature some form of eye-tracking technology.

Canoopsy’s video notes that a larger iPad could be a difference maker in the education market, which could be especially valuable as Apple loses ground to other cheaper tablet makers.

The device is supposedly set to arrive in 2015, although KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently suggested it might not be until later in the year.
