The unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has apparently leaked in some new images from a patent application for a tablet cover.

Samsung reportedly filed for a patent with the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) in South Korea back on Aug. 13, 2013, and was awarded the patent on Nov. 20, 2013. In the patent application, Samsung describes a new cover for tablets. The accessory transforms into a dock that can sustain the weight of the device for more convenience.

MovePlayer has now published several images from the patent in question, showing both the cover and the purported 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. The patent shows actual images of the device and the cover, not just sketches or drawings outlining the design.

It's worth noting that the device shown in these images seems to bear a striking resemblance to the 2014 edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. As MovePlayer points out, however, one of the images (see above) seems to show a microUSB 3.0 connector on the new tablet, not the microUSB 2.0 found on the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition).

The purported Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is not official yet, but the device has already stopped by the FCC and Bluetooth SIG. The tablet also showed up recently in a leaked render, showing just the rear of the device.

Samsung has yet to make an official announcement regarding this much-rumored 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro tablet, but the company is expected to unveil the device in the following weeks at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in February, or even sooner at CES 2014, which is bound to kick off very soon.

With no official confirmation, however, it is advisable to take all leaks, rumors and speculation with a grain of salt for now. If Samsung does indeed plan to unveil its Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 at CES or MWC in January or February, respectively, we'll hear more about it very soon. We'll keep an eye out for any new information and keep you up to date as soon as we learn more.
