Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Now Getting 2GB RAM; Will That Carry-Over Internationally?


Back in June, Amazon briefly listed Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 for pre-order, revealing some specs for the tablet, before it took the listing down. Samsung responded to the incident by claiming that some of those specs Amazon revealed were incorrect, but we didn’t know just which ones. Considering the fact that the tablet had apparently undergone re-engineering to become a bit more of an Android powerhouse, we’ve been curious to get an accurate read on just where these new specs will fall. As we await official word, one users has gotten his hands on the Korean edition of the tablet in its full retail packaging, revealing, among other things, the presence of 2GB of RAM.

That increased memory is a bit of a surprise, as we’d only really been talking about Samsung moving from a dual-core to quad-core Exynos for the Note 10.1’s SoC. According to this source, that will be the same 4412 chip you’ll find in the international GS3. This time, though, there’s a better chance we’ll see it available in more nations, at least as a WiFi-only version of the tablet.

On thing that doesn’t look like it’s getting upgraded is the tablet’s resolution, which even at 10.1 inches should still only be 1280 x 800.

As Samsung gets ready to announce the Note 10.1’s arrival (maybe at the Unpacked event at the end of August, or alongside the rumored Note 2 announcement mid-month), it’s preparing some of the first promotional campaigns for the tablet. Check out its new video, highlighting the device’s business uses, below:
