Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 delayed until June so it can ship with quad-core Exynos processor
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has reportedly been delayed until June, but for a pretty cool reason.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is an upcoming tablet that was unveiled during MWC in February, and it’s basically a 10.1-inch Android tablet with ‘S Pen’ tech built-in. Translation: it works with a capacitive stylus. Not only that, but it will ship with some dedicated apps for the stylus.
It’s being delayed by Samsung so it can ship with a quad-core processor instead of the dual-core we were told about in February. So while this means that it’s further off at this point, the wait will probably be worth it. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will ship in June packing Samsung’s own quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. It’s probably going to be one of the best performing quad-core parts for mobile devices this year. It will replace a dual-core 1.4 GHz unit that was initially allocated to the Galaxy Note 10.1.
This move implies that Samsung really views the Galaxy Note 10.1 as its flagship tablet for this year. If that’s so, it’s pretty likely that the company won’t launch another high-end tablet for a while, with the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 then stepping firmly into upper-midrange territory.
This information hasn’t been officially confirmed by Samsung so there’s still a chance that it’s wrong – keep that in mind. But naturally, we’d like it to be true.
