Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Unboxed and May Include 2 GB RAM
We may not have to wait that much longer for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1, a 10.1-inch tablet that many are expecting to be announced next month via press event. As we had previously told you, it’s also possible that this press event announcing the “Next Galaxy Device” may be for the Galaxy Note 2 phablet, but the rumor mill consensus still points to a Galaxy Note 10.1 reveal on August 15.
The tablet was unboxed just this week, and the advance unboxing suggested that the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a bit similar to the Galaxy S3’s US and Korean versions, in the sense that it would come with 2 GB instead of 1 GB RAM.
It will also be another one of those increasingly common quad-core tablets, most probably powered by Samsung’s Exynos processor. Also included are a 5-megapixel camera at the back and maybe even 4G LTE for North American editions.
If 4G LTE would be available on the American Galaxy Note 10.1 (assuming it does get released here), we’re guessing it would come with a dual-core instead. As such, it’s possible the unboxed Galaxy Note 10.1 was an international edition.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Galaxy Note 10.1 will not feature a HD screen. Resolution on the unboxed Note 10.1 was a mere 1280 x 800, a far cry from the Apple iPad’s Retina Display and the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity’s 1920 x 1200 10-inch screen.
As expected, the Galaxy Note 10.1 will distinguish itself from other tablets with its support for the S Pen. Overall, the Galaxy Note 10.1 has the looks of a legit iPad challenger – if only a U.S. version would definitely be announced by Samsung.
