Those of us who are fans of the Galaxy Note series might have paid close attention to the rumors generated back in late October. The rumors about a possible Galaxy Note originated when a device called Samsung GT-N5110 surfaced up in a DLNA certification listing. As the original Note smartphone (or phablet if you may) had the model number GT-N7000 and the latest iteration, The Galaxy Note 2 has GT-N7100. The bigger tablet called the Galaxy Note 10.1 has the device code of GT-N8000; this led to the speculation of a 7 inch tablet in the works. Today we uncovered further evidence that there are more Galaxy Note tablets coming up. A listing for Samsung GT-N5100 emerged on GLBenchmark, unintentionally revealing a device which is running of Android version 4.1.2. The device also has a 1.6 GHz Exynos 4412 processor, the very same which is being used by the Galaxy Note 2 smartphone. You might be wondering that these specs may belong to another smartphone, that might be true but the screen resolution indicates otherwise. The resolution of 1280×800 is strongly suggesting at a tablet device. These kinds of details are not very easy to make up, although they can be forged. But the evidence is weighing towards the possibility of a 7 inch tablet by the Korean company. The 7 Inch tablet will be a perfect fit between the 5.5 inched Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Currently there are two models listed. GT-N5100 and GT-N5110, if we follow the naming pattern of Samsung these might be the Wifi only and Wifi plus 3G connectivity models. Previously we have seen this in Galaxy Note 10.1, the Wifi only version was code named GT-N8119 while the 3G and WIFI model was numbered GT-N8100 (international versions). There is no more information available at this point. We might suggest that Samsung will give more information of CES 2013, but we are inclined to say that Samsung will use MWC as a potential launch platform.
