Samsung May Be Preparing 7-inch Galaxy Note Tablet

By - Source: Phandroid | B 15 comments

Includes 1.6GHz quad-core processor.

A benchmark result has revealed a device known as the Samsung GT-N5100, which has led to speculation that the firm is preparing a 7-inch Galaxy Note tablet.

Nenamark revealed that the device boasts a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and sports a 1280x720 screen resolution, which is slightly lower than the display sizes of the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.

Should the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.0 exist, expect it to ship with the S Pen stylus as it's likely to follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy Note 2 phablet and Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

The latest tablets from the firm are the aforementioned 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Google Nexus 10.

    They could create a 7 inch Nexus variant with AOSP on it, leave it developer-friendly (like Nexus 10) and compete directly with Nexus 7. Given their quality hardware (and now their experience with Nexus 10) it should sell like hotcakes.

    Needless to say, this goes for their upcoming SGS4, as well (vs. Nexus 4).

    Doesn't Samsung know that Apple has a patent on the measurement of 7", end sarcasm

    uhhh.. sorry, I like samsung, but this doesn't seem smart. The Note II has the same specs but just 1.5" smaller. I can only see this do well at a price point of 199-250. But you can upgrade to the phone version Note II at that price and you get phone functionality included. I dunno, maybe I'm not seeing the market value but I guess there's a place for everything.

    I love the Note 2 (I'm using it to write this post, in fact) and so I don't personally feel a need to own a 7" Note table. That being said, though, if it had an OLED display, I'd be sorely tempted. Otherwise, I'd be more likely to wait for a Note 10.x with that 2560x1600 display from the Nexus 10...

    Wacom Digitizer pens dont work with that high resolution ... dont expect a "note" with 2560x1600 display

    Almost all samsung devices are also a phone, they have made it 7", 7.7", 10.1", all able to place phone call. So it is unlikely this 7" Note is not a phone as well. The only differences is, whether you want to buy seen making phone call with such a big device.

    I need a Note III with a 1920x1080 (or better) display. When it arrives...call me.

    If your willing to settle for 5" display (bit smaller than Note II) that is 1080p you can find those, the S4 should be that too.

    alexthagerIf it didn't have an OLED display, I'd be sorely tempted.

    To each their own, but man, the Note 2 screen makes my wide-gamut desktop monitor look washed out (it's still a great monitor, but there's an obvious difference). Most tablet LCDs are pretty unsaturated; I doubt you'll see one with anything like an aRGB gamut anytime soon.

    Really? I was unaware of that limitation. I'd settle for 1920x1200 if the screen is otherwise excellent, and I know Wacom pens can handle that (since that's the resolution of the Cintiq 24HD). I just can't see buying a 10", 1280x800 tablet at this point...

    Love to make phone call with it, I'm already making phone calls with my Nexus 7, limited to wifi only now. This can replace both of my Galaxy S3 and Nexus 7 :)
