Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Arriving in June With Quad-Core Exynos?

When Samsung first announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet back at the Mobile World Congress, we were excited to see the company’s S Pen from the Note making its way to more of its products. After all, as useful as a stylus is on a 5.3-inch screen, it’s just going to excel that much more when paired with a full-sized tablet. As nice as it was to see that, the rest of the Note 10.1 was a slight letdown, if only for how very similar the hardware specs seemed in comparison to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. A new rumor out of Korea now suggests Samsung may be working to differentiate these models a little more, as well as gives us an idea of when we might see the Note 10.1 arrive.

Samsung originally announced the Note 10.1 as containing a dual-core 1.4GHz processor. Today’s claim, made a Korean newspaper, says that Samsung is re-tooling the Note 10.1 to now feature a quad-core Exynos 4412; we’ve yet to see that chip in any devices so far, and it hasn’t been clear just when it would start showing-up in commercial products. According to this news, Samsung was planning to release the Note 10.1 earlier, but will now delay the tablet until June as a result of doing this processor upgrade. It’s hard to say just how accurate these claims may be, but if they’re legit, we’d say a hefty processor bump is more than worth a little wait.
