Samsung’s current Galaxy Note II smartphone has a 5.5 inch screen. Its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has, as its name suggests, a 10.1-inch display. Well, as you can see, there’s an opening between the two sizes and Samsung may be working on filling the gap. The South Korea-based electronics giant has already introduced several tablets in the 7-inch range, but it doesn’t yet have one at that size with S Pen support and a Wacom display for sketching and taking notes.
A new benchmark from NenaMark suggests that a model dubbed the GT-N5100 is already in testing. The “GT-N” part of the model name has been used in previous Note-branded products. The Galaxy Note 10.1 for example uses the GT-N8013 model number. The new benchmarks suggest the tablet will sport a 1280 x 720-pixel display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and an ARM Mali-400 GPU.
We’re excited to hear more about the Galaxy Note 7, if it does indeed exist, and wouldn’t be surprised if it’s unveiled during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in January.
