A 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note device has made an appearance on the GLBenchmark website, masquerading as the Samsung GT-N5100.
According to the benchmarks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have a 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos CPU. The 7-inch display will have a 1280x800 pixel resolution, and the tablet will run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean straight out of the box. The Note 7 seems to have the same display and the resolution found on the Google Nexus 7.
If the device falls in Samsung’s Note line-up, you can expect it to have a Stylus (the S Pen) just like the Samsung Galaxy Note, Note II and the Note 800.
The rumour mills are hard at work predicting the devices that Samsung will unveil at CES 2013. To start with, we have the Note III, which is rumoured to have a 6.3-inch display. The original Note has a 5.3-inch display whereas the Note II has a 5.5-inch display. It would be a little shocking if Samsung announces the Note III that has a 6.3-inch display and a 7-inch Note tablet.
The other Samsung device rumoured to be unveiled at CES is the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The S IV is expected to have a 5-inch display with full HD (1920x1080) resolution. There are also talks of 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel rear camera.
Currently, Samsung has the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 available in the market. It has a 7-inch display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16 GB storage, 3G connectivity with standard SIM card, 3.15MP rear camera & VGA video call camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It runs on Android 4.0.3 out of the box. Can this 7-inch Note be a replacement for the Tab 2?
