Report: Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 delayed until June; tablet will feature quad-core Exynos processor
posted by Alan F. / Apr 07, 2012, 2:25 AM
The Korean newspaper said that Samsung decided to go with the quad-core Exynos processor as a way to make the tablet more competitive to the new Apple iPad. The A5X processor in the latter tablet has outperformed even the Tegra 3 when it comes to graphics so Samsung is hoping that by bringing in a higher-spec'd chipset, it will be in better shape to compete with Apple's third-gen tablet.
We were able to get our hands on the device during MWC 2012 when Samsung showed it off. You can take a look at the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 in action by clicking on the video below. Of course, this video was made with the dual-core Exynos 1.4GHz processor under the hood.

Got to love Samsung how he can change the specs in the last minute because of the competition!

Now this one should have been called the Galaxy Tab 2. Samsung foolishly bit off it's own arm when it abruptly turned it's naming scheme for premium models into one for budget models.

I agree, but disagree. I agree that Samsung's GT2 isn't much of an upgrade to what was a premium model, but I don't think this model should have that name. I think Sammy did a good job in keeping it as the Note 10.1 because it has a more specific target in the market (i.e. teachers, students, and businesses).

I am an artist, and I am still hoping the resolution will be bumped up a little bit in the last minute. Having the same resolution as almost the half-sized Galaxy Note and having an extra on-screen bar to take up screen pixel is a little ridiculous.

@E.J, I soooo agree, my Galaxy Note phone, is off the CHART FOR PURE CRISP COLORFUL DISPLAY. Can you believe they are doing a Galaxy Note phone 2? With even higher res. Guess they are worried about the new LG? But the difference between the Note phone with Super Amoled HD and the Note 10 Tablet with the same 1280x800 is the format of Super PLS. Samsung uses this Super PLS in their commerical monitors of 40" which cost up to $5000. Funny thing is, the Super PLS is cheaper to build then IPS? So my long winded point is, I am sure that if they were worried about the graphics, they must have an ACE up their sleeve on the display.We won't be disapointed. OH, it is not half sized, but the Note phone is 12.3 square inches and the 10 tablet is 42.5 square inches.So the Note tablet is actually 3.45 times larger then the phone. Since the human can only see 300 pixel density, Sammy will come through for us. I know my spellin sux
