Samsung to unveil Galaxy Note 10.1 with brand-new specs on August 15th?
posted by Victor H. / Jul 25, 2012, 6:45 AM
Samsung unveiled the tablet back at MWC, but since then we haven’t heard much about the pen-enabled 10-inch tablet. Nearly two weeks before the event, though, more sources agree the Galaxy Note 10.1 will get re-announced with brand new specs and now it seems that all the technical details have surfaced before the launch.
The leak is more of a reality in Korea where someone managed to buy and use the device. We expect the specs to be largely the same when (and if) the tablet gets announced, but there’s always the chance that Samsung changes something in the last minute. With no further ado, here’s what the Note 10.1 could look like:
Sadly, those couple of weeks that passed since Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean were not enough and the tablet will arrive with ICS on board. The missing piece of the puzzle is the actual price, but we would expect it to be somewhere in the $500 vicinity for a basic Wi-Fi-only model. Would you get one of those upcoming Notes?

ICS is enough with these specs, and it'll be updated soon like Asus tf prime got ICS. But still 1280x800 pixels? So disappointed.

I was just about to say that. 1080 would be nice, as well as JB. If and only if it is cheaper than the iPad will it have a possibility of selling. Tablet app support is terrible on Google Play. I'd say about 10% of the apps have tablet support.

Yes, wanted a FHD display. It's because of the SoC. Exynos 4412 doesn't support FHD. It supports max WXGA display. http://www.samsung.com/global/

Make sure that it has 3G Voice and Video call, SMS and MMS capability and you have my money.

I am just hanging out for the Note 2 @ this stage. The execs @ Samsung should remember the Asus T700 transformer Infinity is due out in August in Australia and the screen resolution on that will up there with iPad 3.

Disappointed with the screen resolution. Nexus 7 has 1280x800 on 7 inches. On a 10.1 inch screen it's too pixelated. They did the same with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 (plus / 2) by putting a 1024x600 resolution on that.

If these are in fact the correct specs, this tablet has already failed before launch. I will re-iterate what someone said above. No Exynos 5250 processor No Mali 604 GPU No 1920X1200p resolution = FAIL

Few reasons this tablet is not worth it 1. No 1920x1200 screen, I'd be like releasing a flag-ship galaxy phone with a 480p screen at this point. 2. No Exynos 5250, tablets should be utilizing CPUs MADE FOR TABLETS... 3. 16GB of storage.. Transformer Infinity ships with 32GB with better screen and equally capable processor, at the same price-point. 4. I know many people don't use tablet cameras, but the iPad 3's camera is way better than this one. 500$?... I don't think so...
