The Samsung Galaxy Note 7, an iteration of the series that has already manifested itself in a flurry of sizes, has been possibly revealed. Some probable specifications of it have also come to the fore, but nothing is certain as of now, as all the information has been grabbed through a benchmark result that leaked out recently. The 7-inch size is a standard one these days for reading-based devices, and it is this market that the apparent tablet looks to be targeting.
The whole thing started with a fresh NenaMark benchmark result which was spotted by NotebookItalia. This was brought to our notice by Phandroid, and according to the website, the benchmark reading was of a certain GT-N5100 that has been listed as a 7-inch device. Now, the conjecture about it being from the Note series started when it was realized that the model number is quite similar to the ones that are granted to other phones and tablets from the said range.
As far as the specifications go, this machine seems to be housing a 1.6GHz quad core processor, which works in tandem with a Mali-400MP GPU for rendering its visuals in 720p HD. This puts it in line with the various high-definition reading devices like the Kindle Fire HD, the Nook HD and more that are out right now. It apparently will be offered with Android 4.1.2 out of the box. And if the Galaxy Note 7 actually exists, it will certainly ship with the S Pen functionality that has been grabbing quite some attention ever since its introduction.
The Note series started off with the eponymous device that was first unveiled in October 2011. It featured a huge 5.3-inch display on its front. Furthermore, this year saw two new gadgets being revealed with the same tag. First among them was the 10.1-inch tablet which comes with a number of advanced features. And then there’s the successor to the earlier handset, which sports a larger 5.5-inch screen, and is the company’s flagship device at the moment.
What’s being called as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might or might not be in existence, but reports from the past as well as the latest one, slightly tilt the scales towards the former possibility.
