Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Spotted Online

A new mini tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, has been seen in a benchmarking test.

Fans of Samsung have been busy over the festive season and have observed a new Samsung device on a benchmarking test from the west GL Benchmarks, which many predict to be the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The mysterious device, currently known as the GT-N5100 on the benchmark tests, will apparently come with a 7 inch touchscreen with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 800. This will be powered by a 1.6GHz quad core Exynos 4412 quad core processor from Samsung.

And according to information from an unknown source at Samsung, the Galaxy Note 7 will arrive already running on the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system to make it one of the most up to date devices available.

Using the rest of the Galaxy Note range to fill in the gaps, we can expect that this 7 inch variant will come with the unique S-Pen for accurate touchscreen use. There is also a rumour circulating that Samsung have fitted the device with a 13 megapixel rear facing camera, which will always win points in its favour.

With 2013 kicking off with the CES and Mobile World Congress conferences in the early months, it is extremely likely that Samsung will choose one to show off their new 7 inch mini tablet.

There are also rumours that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S IV at either CES or MWC. As the Galaxy S III was unveiled in May this year, it is plausible that the unveiling of a successor could happen around the same time or possibly earlier.
