Samsung Galaxy Q to launch as smartphone, tablet hybrid at IFA this September?

Samsung is preparing the release of a new addition to its Galaxy range that will bridge the gap between smartphone handsets and standalone tablets, new reports have suggested.

Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Q, the new device will reportedly boast a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display and fall between the company’s largest current smartphone which lines up at 4.5-inches and its smallest tablet device at 7-inches.

Expected to make an appearance at the Samsung press announcement during this year’s IFA conference in Berlin this September, the Samsung Galaxy Q will look to emulate the success of its Galaxy S II handset brethren whilst offering a host of tablet-esque features.

Whilst the company behind the reports, Yahoo in Samsung’s native Korea, have yet to reveal any official word on confirmed specifications and pricing it is expected the hybrid handset will land sporting a powerful dual-core processor and slim line, desirable form factor.

Is 5.3-inches too big for a smartphone and too small for a tablet or the perfect size for a transitional device? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
