Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) passes through the FCC

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) passes through the FCC
Earlier today, we got more information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) release window and pricing; and, as we know, before a new mobile device can be released, it has to pass through the FCC. It looks like Samsung is getting that certification out of the way early, because a new filing says that Samsung's new flagship 10-inch tablet has been approved by the FCC.

There isn't a whole lot of new information to be found in the filing. This is for the Wi-Fi only model number SM-P600 of the tablet, and the only new piece of hardware in the device that we didn't know about is an ANT+ sensor, which is used for collecting data from bio-trackers. So, the ANT+ sensor could be used with S Health devices or even the Galaxy Gear, which includes a pedometer.

Otherwise, this is the same 10.1-inch 2560x1600 device with 3GB of RAM, 802.11ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and S Pen support. The one question that remains is whether the U.S. is getting the Exynos 5 Octa SoC, or the Snapdragon 800 powering the tablet.
