With the success of the original Galaxy Note, and critical praise for its successor, the Note 2, it seems Samsung may be looking to expand its Note line even further, possibly bringing to market a smaller Note tablet device. That's what's suggested by a new DLNA certification filing, which lists a Samsung "GT-N5110" with digital media server and playback capabilities. So far all "GT-N" series devices have come to market as Galaxy Notes -- the original was GT-N7000, the Note 10.1 is GT-N8000 and the Note 2 followed as GT-N7100 -- so there's little doubt in our mind that the N5110 is most likely another Galaxy Note product.
Conventional wisdom suggests that it could be a 7 8 or 9-inch tablet, filling the gap between the Note 2 and Note 10.1, as SamMobile speculates this morning. However, aside from the name, we know nothing about this device, so we're willing to keep an open mind.
Assuming Samsung is working on a 7-9-inch Galaxy Note tablet, CES in January and Mobile World Congress in February are both strong possibilities for launch venues. MWC in particular might be likely, as that's where we saw the Note 10.1 last year, along with the entire Galaxy Tab 2 range.
Any wild theories about what we might see on such a device? Shout out in the comments.
