Samsung has already made a 5.5-inch Galaxy Note as well as a 10.1-inch tablet with the Note moniker. They also look to be readying a 7-inch version which fits perfectly in between the two aforementioned display sizes. The ‘GT-N5100’ model number has appeared a couple times before when the device received DLNA certification in addition to when it was found in a User Agent Profile outing the devices screen resolution of 800 by 1280. This time, the same model number has appeared in a GLBenchmark test running Android 4.1.2 and powered by a Samsung Exynos 4412 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, as well as the same resolution mentioned before.
So how do we know this is a Galaxy Note? With the model number being GT-N5100, the “N” signifies that it’s a Galaxy Note. In addition, the original Galaxy Note carried a model number of GT-N7000, the Note II is GT-N7100, and the Note 10.1 is GT-N8000. If Samsung plans on actually releasing the device, which is very likely, CES and MWC are right around the corner and are viable options for events at which it could be detailed.
