Galaxy Note 3 Rumors: Device Spotted in Benchmarks?

Galaxy Note 3 rumors are starting to surface as something that could be the device showed up on the GLBenchmark.

The device featured the codename GT-N5100. The N located before the numbers indicates that this will indeed be a Galaxy Note device.

The Benchmark data also reveals that this new Galaxy Note will run Android 4.1.2, JellyBean and feature a 1.6 GHz Exynos 4412 CPU. The display will have a resolution of 1280x800.

This device could also be a variation of the current Galaxy Note model with a larger display. Some tech publications are stating that Samsung could be launching a 7-inch version of the smartphone tablet hybrid in the near future.

The company already offers variants of the Note with a 10.1-inch screen. A 7-inch model would make for a good competitor with Google's Nexus 7 and the Apple iPad Mini.

Samsung released the Galaxy Note 2 earlier this year and it has gone on to be one of the company's most successful devices of all time.

The company recently reported that it has sold 5 million Galaxy Note 2 units in just 60 days.

This makes for another record-breaking release for the company who enjoyed much success with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 earlier in the year.

The Galaxy Note 2 launched only 2 months ago and has already moved 5 million units worldwide.

Samsung released an earlier report that stated that it sold around 3 million Galaxy Note 2 units just one month after its launch.

Before the official launch of the Galaxy Note 2, J.K. Shin, the head of Samsung's Mobile Unit, predicted that the device would sell 20 million units after just one year. With this news of 5 million sold in just two months, the company is on pace to exceed that prediction and blow past the sales of the original model.
