Unknown Samsung device gets Wi-Fi certification, could be Galaxy Note successor
A couple of mysterious Samsung devices were just spotted in the Wi-Fi Alliance's database after receiving Wi-Fi certification – the Samsung GT-N8000 and GT-N8013. What we are dealing with here is not quite clear, but let us put on our deerstalker, take out our magnifying glass, and make a prediction backed up by some old-fashioned logic.

So, the device with a model number closest to the ones listed is the Samsung Galaxy Note, also known as the GT-N7000. That said, it could be that the two new devices have quite a lot to do with it. On one hand, these two new model numbers may belong to a Galaxy Note successor. But on the other hand, a Galaxy Note successor might carry a GT-N7100 model name, just like the Samsung Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II are known as the i9000 and the i9100 respectively. If that happens to be the case, the devices behind the GT-N8000 and GT-N8013 model names could be entirely new smartphones or tablets.

Of course, all of the information above is pure speculation, so it won't be surprising if it turns out to be completely wrong. Would you like to make a guess of your own? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments.

this doesnt mean its releasing any time soon. there isnt even a rumor to go with the model number which is unusual.

Could be a bigger version of the Note, I still think Sprint and Verizon might get it. Usually Samsung products always have different variants.

I just saw the Note in the Samsung retail store and I'm really tempted to buy it but not until the price drops.
