Samsung Galaxy Note 7.7 leaked via benchmark

It looks like Samsung’s next device will be a 7.7-inch version of the popular Galaxy Note. The rumoured device was leaked in a benchmark result.

The benchmark was conducted by GLBenchmark. The device appears on the site as ‘GT-N51000’. The tablet also made an appearance at DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), which is a group that makes sure products are up to par with their standards.

If genuine, the Korean tech giant is likely to launch the device as the Galaxy Note 7.7. Its touchscreen has a resolution of 1280×800 pixels with a pixel density of 196ppi. This would mean that the device will not sport a pixel density as high as the iPad’s retina display. However, photos, videos, the web, and games will still look good on the device.

The Galaxy Note 7.7 will pack a 1.6GHz quad-core processor under the hood and runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), which is disappointing since this isn’t the latest version of Google’s operating system. Fortunately, it will run the latest version (Android 4.2) when launched. This is the same version of Android running in the Google Nexus 4.

Expect the device to make an appearance at CES in January or at MWC in February.

You may think that Samsung is creating too many versions of the Galaxy Note, just like it did with the Galaxy Tab. However, after beating Nokia as the top smartphone manufacturer in the world, it seems the Korean firm knows what it is doing.
