Samsung had been very busy on the tablet market in 2011, when the South Korea-based company launched several tablet formats, including 8.9 and 7.7 inch models, which didn’t received any successors. It seems that, when it came to launching new tablet formats, Samsung decided to experiment less in 2012.
Well, the South Korea-based company is reportedly working on a new 7-inch tablet, unofficially dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The alleged 7-inch tablet made the headlines over the past few weeks, but now we have the first proofs that the model does exit.
Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was spotted as GT N5100 in NenaMark 2 benchmark logs, and now new benchmark results of the same terminal have leaked on the web.
This time we are talking about GLBenchmark, which, unfortunately, doesn’t unveil too many details about the terminal, maybe except for the fact that Samsung is indeed working on a 7.7-inch tablet packing a quad-core Exynos SoC. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have a display resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, while the processor mounted on the Exynos chipset will be clocked at 1.6 GHz (we are most likely talking about the same chipset underpinning the popular Samsung Galaxy Note 2).
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and it will boast a Mali 400 GPU. It’s interesting how Samsung is returning to the 7.7-inch format, especially that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 model was highly-appreciated, being a powerful and easy-to-handle tablet.
The new 7.7-inch tablet might also pack an S Pen stylus, therefore it might also come with the TouchWiz-specific Premium Suite package. Maybe we will be able to see the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in flesh at MWC 2013 or CES 2013.
