Upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 (2015) tablet leaks on a Samsung website

Upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 (2015) tablet leaks on a Samsung website
A new, yet-unannounced 10.1" Samsung Note tablet has popped up on the company's website, mentioned in services and app descriptions there. Last year, Samsung introduced a 10-inch Galaxy Note with Super Clear LCD tech, and the respectable 2560 x 1600 pixels of resolution, carrying the venerable S Pen stylus, letting you doodle or handwrite on the generous screen real estate. It was introduced in October, and, despite the high-res panel, carries a somewhat aged Snapdragon 800 chipset, so Samsung might have decided that it's time for update.

The upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 (2015) appears in descriptions of Samsung's WatchON , Galaxy 11 Shooting Shooter and Galaxy 11 Cannon Shooter pages, as you can see above, mentioned for support alongside last year's Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) edition. Since it would be a crying shame for the new tablet to ship with anything less than Android 5.0 Lollipop, we might have to wait out at least the next month to see it being announced, as that's when Google is releasing the source code.

If Samsung decides to keep the trend of equipping its latest tablets with high-res AMOLED displays, we can reasonably expect the Super Clear LCD of last year's 10-inch Note to be upgraded to a Super AMOLED panel. If it is as color-accurate as on the Tab S 8.4, we wouldn't balk against that change, too. The Note 10.1 (2015) could also sport at least a Snapdragon 805 chipset, making it screeching fast, but let's wait and see what other rumors trickle down the pipeline about the eventual next 10-inch Note edition.

Please don't release a 16gb version because most retailers only stock the lowest gb versions. 32gb minimum please, memory is so cheap & on tablets you cannot move apps to a Sd card.

If it has metal edges, QHD screen actually supported by Exynos 7 Octa and Snapdragon 805 and has an AMOLED panel, it can be the best tab of Samsung so far.

Its no news that Samsung always delivers on the specs and I am pretty sure they'll include all of what you mentioned in their next flagship Tablet but the big question is how far the TouchWiz will optimized for tablets which Tab S wasn't. It also needs to align more towards Android L design elements as it will create harmony amongst apps UI and TouchWiz UI. Samsung has fixed their design, the lag is also fixed but the only thing that remains to be fixed is TouchWiz's design.

Definitely agreed TouchWiz needs to be updated to the Material design But I think TouchWiz on tablets actually works better compared Stock Android and iOS Mainly because of Multi Window and also the S Pen are really handy, especially for a tablet

Well.....feature wise no other interface comes close to TouchWiz. It is truly the only UI which actually takes advantage of the big screen but it is still laggy on tablets from the reviews of Tab S I've seen. There is constant drop of frame rates and screen redraws in Erica Griffin's review I saw. Also, it could use some cosmetic uplift by taking more design cues from Android L. Hence, creating a more visual harmony when we use G apps on TouchWiz UI.

Yea TouchWiz still had lag issues on the S5, e.g.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCln9_mgZJo But reviews are saying that its fixed on the Note 4, e.g.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVkaY-F6Zhs So seem like Samsung has finally optimized TouchWiz Probably wont be a problem for their next tablets Unless TouchWiz gets unoptimized while trying to update to Material design

Thanks for the link. +1 But I don't really call this video demonstrating the 'lag' but it focuses on the 'speed' of the device. I don't really care if GS5 takes few secs more to more open the app as not only it is pushing much more pixels then iPhone but no person would be really opening and closing so many apps at a time. However, you can see that there is no LAG on either GS5 or Note 4. But honestly, I didn't think the difference between GS5 and Note 4 would've been that big. Great job, Samsung ! Also, it is worth mentioning that iP6+ is a bit slower then iP6 as it is pushing much more pixels, far as I know.

Samsung wont have 4:3 aspect ratio for their tablets.

8. vincelongman

Posts: 5699; Member since: Feb 10, 2013

IMO 4:3 is too narrow for videos, movies and games I hope its 3:2, like the Surface Pro 3 3:2 is a good middle ground between narrow 4:3 and widescreen 16:9/16:10

Are you crazy??? A 3:2 ratio makes a screen even narrower than a 4:3 one.

Not sure what you're talking about... 3:2 is between 4:3 and 16:9. On a 10.1 inch screen, 4:3 is just over 8 inches long, 16:9 is just under 9 inches long, and 3:2 would be in the middle.

FINALLY! I've been waiting for word on this for a long time. My hunch is that this will be Samsung's first 64 bit tablet using the recently announced Exynos 7 chip with the Mali T760 GPU with all 16 cores in use. That would make it a rival for the I Pad air 2. If it's less than that, it will be behind before it's begun. Super AMOLED screen would be great but for productivity uses where the screen is normally white, that might drain the battery too fast so am looking forward to seeing how they address that. Hurry up Lollipop and hurry up Samung.

Since the Nexus 9 just doesn't do it for me, I might have to go with this as my Nexus 10 replacement.

Finally! Couldn't wait for the next Samsung tab after deciding to not get the Note 10.1 2014, the Tab/NotePro or the Tab S. Really hoping for the new design, AMOLED display and the new features of TW. Looking forward to this device~
