Samsung has announced a revamped version of the Galaxy Note 10.1, with some updated specs. It had announced the 10.1″ version of the Galaxy Note earlier at MWC, but it seems they didn’t think it had enough to sell.
The revamped version now comes with a 1.4 GHz quad core processor, Exynos 4412, up from the dual core version the original Note 10.1 had. Screen size and resolution remain the same, at 10.1″ and 1280×800 pixels respectively. Another change is that there’s now a slot for the S Pen, unlike the original version.
The amount of RAM has been doubled, from 1 GB to 2 GB, which should suffice, even for the power users. While we’re at it, there are now 16 GB and 32 GB versions as well, apart from a 64 GB one.
Specs at a glance:
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz
- 10.1″ PLS TFT display of HD resolution, 1280×800 pixels (149 PPI)
- 1.4 GHz Quad Core Exynos 4412 processor, Mali-400MP GPU
- 5 MP main camera, LED flash, video recording up to 1080p at 30 FPS; 1.9 MP front facing camera
- 2 GB RAM, 16 / 32 / 64 GB internal memory, support for microSD cards up to 64 GB
- Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GLONASS, GPS with aGPS
- 3G version
- 7000 mAh battery
The Note 10.1 also comes with all the S-Pen goodness of the original. Apps like S Note, S Planner, Crayon physics, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch, and Polaris Office should all be enough to let you stay productive and creative enough. So, unlike the other tablets out there, it should not only be a consumption device, but also a content creation device.
Better yet, this introduction video is all sorts of awesome. Great stuff from Samsung, say what you may about TouchWiz.
