Samsung is widely expected to unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 4 at a pre-IFA event on Sept. 3, but another phablet has now appeared on GFXBench.

Based on this newly-surfaced benchmark listing, it seems that the company has at least one other phablet in the pipeline. While the Galaxy Note 4 will surely come with top-notch specs and features all around, this newly-surfaced phablet appears to be a mid-range offering.

MySamsungPhones has spotted an intriguing GFXBench listing, which details a yet-to-be-announced Samsung phablet with model number SM-G739F. The listing in question details some mid-range specifications, which indicates that Samsung may launch a budget-friendly offering alongside the premium Galaxy Note 4.

According to the GFXBench entry, the unannounced SM-G739F will sport a 5.5-inch display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Under the hood, the device will pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, paired with Adreno 330 graphics and 1.3GB of RAM (could ultimately lunch with 1.5GB). Other specs include 16GB of internal storage capacity (no mention of microSD support for additional memory), an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front shooter. In terms of software, the phablet will launch with Android 4.4.4 KitKat on board out of the box.

The listing offers no additional information regarding this upcoming device, which means that it remains unclear for now just when it may see the light of day. Samsung made no official announcement in this regards, but may choose to launch the mid-range phablet alongside the high-end Galaxy Note 4 at the Sept. 3 event in Berlin, ahead of the big IFA 2014 trade show.

It also remains unclear whether this purported tablet is designed for a specific market or whether it will see a wide global debut. Samsung is also rumored to launch a Galaxy Alpha smartphone with a metallic design, but that's unconfirmed for now as well.

With nothing but leaks and speculation to go on, it's highly recommended to take everything with a grain of salt until Samsung makes an official announcement. We'll keep you up to date as soon as we learn more about Samsung's upcoming launch plans, so stay tuned.
