Several months after the Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last February, the South Korean company released a commercial for the tablet on Youtube.
The ad which was uploaded by the Step Management agency, lasts only 31 seconds, and offers a preview of some of the tablet’s features. It shows a business professional enjoying the uses of the S Pen stylus on the 10-inch screen. One feature presented in the ad is Shape Match, one that automatically makes figures drawn on the screen better. The commercial likewise promotes the tablet’s multi-tasking capability. It ends with the tagline, “Note, the new way.” Other than these, however, the ad offers no information about the hardware that comes with the slate.
The device, however, is widely believed to sport a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, Mali-604T graphics, and storage starting from 16GB up to 64GB. There will be support for microSD expansion up to 32GB. It will furthermore have a Super PLS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a 2-megapixel web camera, a 3- megapixel main camera with flash and autofocus, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi connectivity, with 3G being an optional feature. Meanwhile, its dimensions are 6.9 x 10.11 x 0.35 inches and its weight is 1.29 lbs. The device is powered by a Rechargeable Li-ion battery. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich allegedly is its operating system, but it is likely that Samsung will offer the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update a short while after the device hits the market.
The online commercial, unfortunately, does not announce when the tablet will become available. Earlier, it was speculated that the device is scheduled to be presented to the media in a press conference on August 15, but recent news revealed that Samsung will unveil the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note II instead during that event.
As for the price, the tablet was offered for $549.99 for some time on Amazon, but it had been already been pulled from that website.
In the meantime, here is the advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
