Duly noted: Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet

Just as there are a million stars in the Galaxy, Samsung has a vast array of tablet models to choose from. If you’re in the market for a Samsung tablet, it’s not the easiest decision to make, but at least the company now has one standout gem to offer.

That’s at least the case with the Galaxy Note 10.1, which received a hefty update today that makes it look great on paper.

Samsung quietly debuted the Galaxy Note 10.1 early Wednesday at its keynote during IFA Berlin. The news came as a surprise after the announcement of the Galaxy Note 3, though it will come dressed in the Note’s textured leather chassis.

Specs

The Wi-Fi and 3G version of the tablet device will feature a 1.9GHz octa-core processor, while the 4G version will come with a 2.3GHz quad-core processor. Both will come standard with 3GB of RAM, though it’s unclear which of these two versions will make it to the U.S.

The newly announced Note 10.1 shares many of the same software features as the Note 3, such as the new S Pen companion apps and Air Command functionality. It’s also equipped with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto focus and LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for clearer video chats, and a 8220 mAh battery pack.

It’s available with up to 64GB of internal memory, with the ability to add on an extra 64GB via an expansion slot.

The newly revised Galaxy Note 10.1 will launch sometime in October, according to a Samsung representative, after the release of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and Galaxy Note 3.
