Samsung GT-N8000 gets Wi-Fi certification, may be the Galaxy Note’s successor
The Samsung Galaxy Note has just made it to the US via AT&T, but it may already have a successor in the works. Or, more intriguingly, Samsung may be working on an even larger phone/tablet hybrid (5.5-6″ perhaps?).
The Samsung GT-N8000 and GT-N8013 have both received Wi-Fi certification. And recently we saw a GT-N8010 passing the same tests. Seeing as how the internationally-selling Galaxy Note has the model number GT-N7000, any one of these could be its successor of course, but the most likely candidate is the GT-N8000. As for the N8010 and N8013, they may just be slightly tweaked versions of the same device.
Yet Samsung could have chosen N7100 as the model number for its Note successor – after all the Galaxy S was i9000, and the Galaxy S II was i9100, so that would have made sense. Which makes us think that the N8000 may be an even bigger version of the N7000.
All we know about it for now is that it will have dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n support, and that it’s a smartphone. The rest is all speculation, but we’re hoping that Mobile World Congress next month will be where we’ll find out all the other details about this handset. So stay tuned.
