Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 August Release Date Confirmed

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will probably be released later this month, this is after Korean manufacturer Samsung sent an official press release dated August 6th to several news firms confirming our previous report that it’s going to arrive earlier than Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5.  

If the first version of Galaxy Note could neither be categorized as phone nor tablet, this time around it is clearer for everyone that the Note 10.1 is a tablet with 10-inch display. Likewise, it will come with more powerful hardware and many tech enthusiasts believe it’s going to be a fierce competitor to other devices in its category.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Key Specs

Processor. There is no information as to the chipset Samsung is using in this device but it’s been confirmed that the Note 10.1 will sport a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. Galaxy S3 used Samsung’s own Exynos CPU so there is a possibility that it will sport the equivalent processor for tablets.

Memory. This slate will be among the first few ones to come with 2GB RAM. While 1GB could have been enough for it, the manufacturer simply wants to pose a greater threat to its competitors especially Apple. It will come as 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variant plus a support for 64GB microSD card.

Display. Everybody was expecting Galaxy Note 10.1 to come with Super AMOLED screen panel but that does not seem to be the case here. Based on the alleged official product specs, it will feature 10.1 inches WXGA LCD + Digitizer that offers resolution as high as 1280 x 800 pixels.

OS. Previous rumors point to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the native operating system for the tablet but the document says it will come with Ice Cream Sandwich. If this is the case, Samsung has to double-time in developing the update to be able to roll it out before the year would be over.

Battery. A 7,000mAh Li-Ion battery pack will power this device. Since it’s not using the popular Super AMOLED screen, the battery could last up to 7 hours of continuous use.

GSMArena has already received a review unit of the device so while the manufacturer hasn’t disclosed a fixed release date yet, we can expect it would be sooner than later.

  1. The new Note is definitely all about productivity. I can see myself using the Note 10.1 at school to take notes and important things. I’m looking forward to getting an LTE enabled Note that way I can do things while I’m on the light rail. Many of my Dish coworkers have a Galaxy of some sort and love them as well. I really like streaming live and recorded TV to my phone through the Sling Adapter that I have connected to my Hopper at home. With the Dish Remote Access app on my Galaxy Tab and LTE network, streaming comes in clear and quick. When the Note 10.1 comes out, I will definitely try one out to see how good it is.

  2. Nah, I would go for the Transformer simply because I could use it more than I could probably use GNII.

    Do you think S-Pen is still appropriate for a device with 10.1-inch screen? Based on the photo above, it’s not so appealing.

  3. Hmm…from the looks of it right now, would you think its better than the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T?
