If you thoughts Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 would be the only phablet the company would launch this fall then you were very wrong. This is Samsung after-all, a company that just builds and builds new handsets, and it seems the company has a mid-range large screen device heading to the market, for those who do not have deep enough pockets for the Note 4 we presume.Given the codename SM-G739F, the phablet has shown up for a benchmark on GFXBench and it reveals itself as a modestly spec'd smartphone. Before continuing, we are debating within the Mobile Burn offices whether this is a phablet at all as it packs a 5.5-inch screen. A year ago we would have put it firmly into the large screen camp, but now we are not so sure considering the flagship LG G3 is also a 5.5-inch smartphone and not considered as a phablet. Either way, the panel will be a 720p resolution screen, while purring under the hood there will be a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU for graphics. Helping the processor will be 1.2GB of RAM, while the device will run Android 4.4.4. Oddly, the smartphone will have 12GB of internal storage according to the GFXBench results, but we are more inclined to think it will arrive with 16GB on board and knowing Samsung will also get a MicroSD card slot. In terms of cameras, the SM-G739F will get a 7 megapixel rear lens and a 2 megapixel front facing snapper. Pricing and availability are not know as yet, and we do not even know a name so will be sure to keep you posted as more information comes to us. source: Sam Mobile
