Following the announcement of the Galaxy Note 10.1 earlier this year, the second Samsung device to feature support for its S-Pen stylus, we started hearing rumors that Samsung was considering revising the tablet’s hardware prior to its retail launch. After all, the Note 10.1 specs we initially heard seemed a bit underpowered for a 2012 tablet, and there wasn’t much besides the stylus to differentiate the model form the Tab 2 10.1. We’ve yet to get any confirmation, but recent comments attributed to Samsung representatives were making it sound like a bump to a [...]
Another year, another Samsung Galaxy announcement. This one’s not only the most anticipated; it’s also the most dramatic, with mysterious textured-liquid-blob press invites and aspirational stellar-themed videos. Android fans the world over are looking forward to May 3rd with barely contained excitement. Will the product live up to such heightened expectations? Let’s take a look at the info we have, and do some speculating. Because that’s fun.
In The First Place, What Is The Product?
A few days back, we took a look at what we might expect from a [...]
Samsung seems to pride itself on having plenty of different Android tablet options available. In the past, they’ve largely been differentiated by screen size, but with upcoming models like the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Galaxy Note 10.1, it’s clear that Samsung is also interested in producing devices that offer different hardware options for the same size display. A new leak out of France names a couple possibly-unknown Samsung tablets, but are these just code names with which we’ve been unfamiliar, or might they speak to new hardware altogether?

Of all of Samsung’s upcoming Android tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1, with the same S Pen stylus technology of the original 5.3-inch Note, is arguably the most intriguing. The manufacturer announced the tablet back at the Mobile World Congress, and had plenty of hardware specs to share. What we heard made the Note 10.1 out to be a bit of a mid-range tablet, with a dual-core 1.4GHz Exynos and a 1280 x 800 resolution that seemed just a smidge low for a 10.1-inch device. It’s looking more and more likely, though, that Samsung is giving the Note 10.1 a pre-release makeover, and [...]
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 [...]
