Samsung GT-N5100 Shows In Benchmarks, May Be Mid-Sized Galaxy Note Tablet


Late last month, we saw some evidence that Samsung might be working on a new entry for its Note series of stylus-based Androids, appearing as model GT-N5100 in some regulatory documents and a User Agent Profile. While we didn’t have much info on the hardware itself, that model number, and specifically the letter “N” there, suggested that this would be a Note. After all, existing Note hardware has been in the N7000 or N8000 series. Now that model shows up again, this time with some benchmark results, and sheds a little more light on just what it might be.

While the 5100’s UAProf reported that the Android would have a 1280 x 800 resolution, the new benchmark has it employing a 1280 x 720 screen, instead. We also learn that the 5100 runs its CPU at 1.6GHz and has a Mali-400 MP GPU; that just happens to line up with the Exynos 4 Quad already used on the Note II. Because of the apparently high-end SoC, this isn’t likely to be the lower-end Note hardware we just heard rumored.

What we still don’t have much of is confirmation that the 5100 is a seven-inch tablet, as rumors suggest. That might make sense, with a lower model number than the Note 10.1, but there’s till a lot about this hardware that remains unclear.
