The folks behind South Korea’s The Brave Post website have gotten their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and provided photos and information about its unboxing.
The curiosity for this device has been up for months, and with its first commercial being launched online, more people are wondering about the 10-inch S-Pen-enabled tablet.
This device features a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor with a clock speed of 1.4GHz and a display that has a resolution of 1280 x 800, putting to rest rumors that it the tablet will have a higher resolution. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is its operating system though Jelly Bean will likely be made available shortly. Other features include a 5-megapixel main camera that is capable of HD recording and a 7000mAh battery. Lastly, the device is said to have HSPA+ connectivity, which could imply that it will be available in the future from American carriers such as T-Mobile or AT&T.
These specifications have long been rumored, so there is hardly surprise in finding them on the tablet. What is interesting, however, is that the tablet carries 2GB of RAM instead of the 1GB that was earlier surmised. This will definitely allow the device to offer a fast and smooth computing experience.
Another surprise comes in the form of a feature that enables users to connect the device with their smartphone. This would allow them to enjoy messaging functions from the phone as well as make use of it as a speakerphone. Like on the original 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, users can also make calls on the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 first made its appearance during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last February. Since that time, however, Samsung has made some changes on the device. One of the changes is the introduction of an S-Pen slot that would hold the stylus once it is not in use. The processor has also been upgraded to enable the device to be at par with other tablets at present.
