The Samsung Galaxy S3 may have been the smartphone that has stolen all of the headlines during 2012 but its stablemate the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has also proved a big success and has sold millions of units across the globe. It looks as though the Korean manufacturers are planning to launch a larger version of this model early on in the new year and a model that has recently popped up on a popular internet site could well be the handset in question.
Eagle eyed consumers have noticed a new phone on the popular GLBenchmark internet site going by the name of the Samsung GT-N5100 and it looks as though this device could well be 7 inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that has been speculated about recently. The handset in question does sport a 7 inch display with an excellent resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. In terms of processing power the model is also well equipped thanks to an Exynos 4412 processor with four cores and a speed of 1.6Ghz. Samsung are set to boost the camera capabilities on the model with a 13 mega pixel snapper while the software will be the latest 4.1.2 version of the Android platform.

It looks as though the new larger version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 could be ready to be officially unveiled at one of the major shows that are taking place in the early part of January 2013. The Consumer Electronics Show and the Mobile World Congress are both huge events and the Galaxy Note 7 looks likely to debut at one of these. Samsung’s decision to push the screen size on the model up to 7 inches is predictable given the early success that the iPad Mini has achieved for rival company Apple. What could happen is that the new model will join the Note 2 in the range rather than replace it. This would give consumers wanting a more portable device the option of the smaller 5.5 inch display on the Note 2 or the more tablet like Galaxy Note 7. Click here for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 O2 deals
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has proven a successful model and the fact that the new iPad Mini has also been a massive success it is logical that Samsung would want to release a larger screened version of their popular handset.
