Samsung GT-B9150 Jelly Bean device with Exynos 5250 processor spotted

Samsung appears to be working on a new Jelly Bean device, which could hit stores at some point in the near future. The device, model number GT-B9150, “showed up on a couple of Japanese websites,” according to Sam Mobile.

The GT-B9150 apparently features a display with 1280 x 672 resolution, an 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor (two Cortex-A15 CPUs), Mali T604 GPU, Wi-Fi connectivity and runs Android 4.1.1 out of the box. Such internal components are definitely noteworthy, and the GT-B9150 already sounds like a high-end device, at least on paper.

However, the smartphone doesn’t have a commercial name yet, but it is believed to be a QWERTY slider smartphone – the B series have been used for QWERTY handsets, and this one definitely has a “B” in its codename: GT-B9150. But what if it isn’t a smartphone? What if it’s a tablet, which is what one of the sites that spotted the device seem to suggest, as the GT-B9150 appears to have only Wi-Fi connectivity? Are we looking at Samsung’s next flagship Android tablet, and not at a Samsung smartphone?

We have no idea when this unknown device will be launched, so we’ll just have to wait for Samsung to make it official.

  • I already gave up on the mobile theme here… gotta find another android blog with a decent mobile theme. I like AA but this desktop theme sucks big time. I’ll check back in a month or two…

    “Samsung’s official Exynos 5250 documentation reveals that the part will initially come in two versions. One is clocked at 2 GHz (for tablets), and the other is clocked at 1.7 GHz (for smartphones).” –

    • Then root and BAMM!! 2ghz smartphone lol

    The resolution says is 1280 x 672, doesn’t this mean it’s an 1280 x 720 screen with on screen buttons?

      Google nexus 10 :O

      I don’t understand, that’s a strange resolution and it kind of makes sense because the on screen buttons on my Nexus are 48 pixels wide and 672 + 48 = 720, but on screen buttons make the length of the screen shorter, not the width, so wouldn’t that make it something like 1232 x 720? Even so, I thought on screen buttons were counted in the screen size, such as the Nexus specs saying it has a 1280 x 720 screen even though the bottom 48 pixels are used for the on screen buttons.

    No Chris, not a flagship… Maybe just a 7″ version like a Nexus. Flagship wouldn’t really have a 1280×720 display right?

  • google tablet ;) the nexus 10

    Dear Santa/Samsung,
    Please can I have a Galaxy Note 2-slider? 5.5″ @ 720 display, wacom pen and qwerty keyboard. With at least 2GB ram, eynos 5xxx quad core, quad band 3G and LTE. And of course 64Gb storage, microSD slot etc.

    thanks very much
