Galaxy Note 7-inch tablet spotted in benchmark, launch details not available yet

by: Chris SmithDecember 3, 2012

This isn’t the first time the GT-N5100 gets leaked, so we’re not surprised to hear it was spotted elsewhere already. The model number was seen a few weeks ago, suggesting that Samsung is indeed working on a 7-inch Galaxy Note tablet with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

Now Phandroid points us to a NenaMark 2 bench benchmark result, which reveals that the GT-N5100 sports a 1280 x 720 screen, 1.6GHz quad-core processor with Mali-400MP GPU. Moreover, the Galaxy Note 7 – that product name is not yet confirmed – will apparently run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

We have no idea when Samsung will unveil this new Galaxy Note family member, but considering that we’re getting closer and closer to next year’s CES and MWC, scheduled for January and February, respectively, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the device in the open in the very near future.

Launch details are not available yet, and we’re certainly interested to see how this tablet will be marketed. Is it going to be a Nexus 7, Kindle Fire and iPad mini killer? Is it going to offer phone features as well? What would you want to see in a 7-inch Galaxy Note tablet?

    I want nexus 10 screen with wacom digitized

      Seconded. I was hoping, when I first saw the specs on the Nexus 10, that it would have a Wacom Digitizer. And if it had I would have purchased it right out of the gate. Now blue skying it a little I would love it even more if it had also measured tilt as well as pressure like my Intuos5.

        Yes, I was hoping for the same, I was going to bring my note 10.1 back and get the Nexus, but no digitizer. Oh well, I can wish….

    I wish Samsung Galaxy S5 have better specs than S4 and Note 3.

    • MasterMuffin

      of course it will have but we don’t yet know even the specs of note 3 and s4 so…..

  • I would like to see: SD card slot, standard micro USB connector/charger, a screen at least as good as the one in the Nexus 7, and battery life of at least 11 hours of use.

  • H/W Like Nexus + SD + MicroUSB + HDMI. More importantly, I hope there are lots of scaled apps. My Tab 2 7 is easily good/quick enough but some of the apps scaling lets it down. It’s time for a more polished Android experience.

    • Good comment and I agree. If it has a powerful quad core chipset and micro SD and 32/64 GB with 3g/4g.. it would wreck everything.

  • The Galaxy is great! I’m absolutely in LOVE with this thing! It is very user friendly so I didn’t have to go searching the internet for tutorials. Here’s the one I have on Amazon If you’re looking to get a tablet I’d recommend the Galaxy over the other tablets, it really blows them away. :)

  • Wow, i would love to purchase a 7″ note or a Note 7.7 if it were to have phone capabilities. That would awesome. Id prefer it to have the same dimensions as the Nexus 7 and not the galaxy Tba 7.7
