Samsung May Be Preparing 7-inch Galaxy Note Tablet

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.
