Samsung GT-N5100 Galaxy Note tablet display resolution confirmed

by: Robert NelsonOctober 31, 2012


We last mentioned the Samsung GT-N5100 tablet just a few days back. At the time the tablet, which is said to be a 7-inch Galaxy Note was getting the Wi-Fi and DLNA certifications. Interestingly enough, those certifications showed the tablet as the GT-N5100 and GT-N5110, which could indicate a Wi-Fi only and a cellular connected device. More recently here, it looks like another little tidbit has been revealed. This latest bit is the display resolution.

And yes, before anyone goes any further wondering — the device will have an HD display. A bit more specifically, the GT-N5100 will have a display resolution of 1280 x 800. On this note, given the resolution of the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 — we are not all that surprised. The one catch here, while all of this is beginning to sound good — we have yet to get any sort of official announcement from Samsung. Still, those who may have been hoping to get a Galaxy Note 7 (GT-N5100) may soon be in luck.

Otherwise, there is some mixed feelings in terms of the display size. Some are suggesting it will be a straight 7-inch display and others feel that it will be a 7.7-inch display. Aside from the display, the Galaxy Note 7 is also believed to have a quad-core processor, and of course, the S Pen which is already available with the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. We would also expect, or hope, that this device will launch with Jelly Bean.

Finally, the timing for an announcement could be interesting. It seems we have not seen all that much in terms of leaked detail just yet. Or in other words, it appears as if the release date is not close. Unfortunately what that could mean is an announcement in the early part of 2013 — possible at Mobile World Congress which takes place in February.

    i don’t know when we changed from HD meaning 1920*1080 to HD meaning 1280*800….:(

  • How has this been confirmed?

    • Confirmed? Did you read? Clearly it’s not confirmed at all.

  • Note 2, Note 7, Note 10.1
    Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10

    Cool I guess.

    Except the “Note 2″ is actually 5.5” and the “Nexus 4″ is actually 4.7”.

    • I had the Galaxy Tab 7.7 – they should go for this size on the Note. It is amazing what the extra 0.7″ makes when compared to a 7″ tablet – especially when considering the multi-tasking of Jelly Bean…

      • Kind of like the iPad Mini having a lot more usable screen area?
