Samsung's next Galaxy Note has reportedly surfaced ahead of its January 2013 reveal

Eagle-eyed smartphone fans have noticed a device on benchmarking site GLBenchmark which looks for all the world to be the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The device, which is being called the ‘GT-N5100’, apparently sports a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800, and is reportedly driven by Samsung’s own Exynos 4412 quad-core processor clocked to 1.6GHz. Oh, and the device will ship with Android 4.1.2. too, according to those in the know.

If the rest of the Note range is anything to go by, we expect this device will also have the fantastic S-Pen and rumour has it that Samsung has endowed it with a 13-megapixel camera too, making the device a dead cert to win plenty of friends.

With both Mobile World Congress and CES 2013 happening at the beginning of 2013, we’d hedge our bets and say that it’s likely Samsung will choose one of these conferences  to lift the lid on this device, but one thing's for sure, we’re certainly looking forward to seeing what this mini-tablet will offer, given the already healthy state of the market.
