The odd phone/tablet hybrid that is the Samsung Galaxy Note (and which some are calling a phablet) may be getting a sibling on the market soon.
That’s because The Verge has found some intriguing clues about a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 which may be showcased at the end of this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
What you see above is a screencap of an invite sent out by Samsung for a developer event taking place during MWC. This particular event will focus on the S Pen SDK and the Bada 2.0 SDK. S Pen is what Samsung calls the Galaxy Note’s stylus.
And yes, that’s a Galaxy Note 10.1 mentioned alongside the ‘vanilla’ Galaxy Note and two Bada devices. This could be a typo. Though the event being focused on the S Pen SDK and the new Bada SDK, it’s not very likely. But it’s still possible that the Korean company meant to say Galaxy Tab 10.1. What it would be doing at an S Pen and Bada event we have no clue.
So there’s that. But wait, there’s more. Apparently a casting call for a Samsung commercial (seeking a ‘teen student’) has also been uncovered, this from Google cache since the original has been taken down recently. Speaking of that, Samsung’s page that contained the aforementioned invite to the MWC developer event is now gone too.
That means that the Galaxy Note 10.1 was either leaked by accident, or that it simply doesn’t exist. We’ll find out which it was in less than two weeks, if not sooner. So stay tuned.
