Samsung Galaxy Note II S Pen

Remember that mysterious Samsung product with the model number GT-N5100 that showed up in some benchmark results last month? Details on the device were light at the time, but it was speculated that with a screen resolution of 1280x800, the product could be some sort of new Galaxy Note tablet. Now a new report from SamMobile claims to have all of the details on the N5100. The site says that the GT-N5100 is indeed a Galaxy Note tablet that features an 8-inch display and the codename "Kona." Here's the list of specs that the 8-inch slate is said to include:

  • 8-inch 1280x800 LCD display
  • 5-megapixel rear, 1.3-megapixel front cameras
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB storage, microSD slot
  • 4,600mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • GT-N5100: 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity
  • GT-N5110: Wi-Fi-only model

The Galaxy Note family has grown quite a bit lately, going from just the Galaxy Note in late 2011/early 2012 to the Galaxy Note II (that just got two new colors), Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Note 10.1 and 4G LTE-enabled Note 10.1 in late 2012/early 2013. This new Galaxy Note tablet would slot directly in-between the Note II and Note 10.1 in Samsung's lineup, and it'd provide the company with an S Pen-equipped answer to the similarly-sized Nexus 7 from Google and Apple's iPad mini. The 8-inch Galaxy Note is reportedly due to be announced at Mobile World Congress at the end of February, but there's no word on when it might actually hit store shelves. Stay tuned and we'll share more details with you as we get 'em.

Brandon Johnson
Brandon Johnson I'm not really too sure how I feel about android tablets, I tried two different ones, the note 10.1, and it was nice with the s pen, but kind of lacking to me. And another one by Kobo... That one can't access the play store... And it has 4.0.4 on it, that confuses me.
Sean Jensen
Sean Jensen Gary, that doesn't have the s pen that the note line does though. That's what I'm interested in.
