Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Pops Up Again, Struts It On Benchmarks

By  | 

Recently we did a comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 against the iPad Mini. In that particular comparison, the Galaxy Note 2 came out on tops in all areas except for two – it didn’t run tablet optimized apps (a phablet is more of a phone than a tablet anyways) and its screen size was smaller – 5.5-inches versus 7 inches.

‘Samsung Galaxy Note 3’ pops up on GLBenchmarks again

Well it now looks like Samsung may have a “fix” for this by way of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It is unsure of whether that would be its real name of course since it may or may not be a sequel to the Note 2 but possibly just another in the Note series.

Dubbed the GT-N5100, this is the second time it has showed up in benchmarks and confirms its 1280×800 resolution on a 7-inch display, Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and a 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos quad-core 4412 processor.

Given its screen size that matches the likes of the iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7, it is safe to assume that it will run tablet apps. Also this particular Samsung Galaxy Note seems to overcome the two drawbacks it had over the iPad Mini. Of course, this ‘Samsung Galaxy Note 3’ would only remain ahead of the iPad Mini if it retains all the features of the Note 2 as well such as the better 8MP camera, 2GB RAM, extra features courtesy of the stylus, GPS and of course calling capabilities.

I guess we’ll just have to see.
