Galaxy Note 10.1 specs and features apparently confirmed, release date not so much

August 2, 2012
GALAXY Note 10.1

Announced back in February at MWC 2012 in Barcelona, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is yet to be available in stores, and at this point we’re wondering when the device will finally ship to consumers.

We know that Samsung is tweaking the tablet to offer an even better performance and we now have a new list of specs and features for the device, if Sam Mobile’s latest post is to be believed.

According to the publication, which received the manual for the device from an anonymous source, the device will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich on board, and Samsung will upgrade it to Jelly Bean at a later date. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is also expected to sport a 1.4 quad-core processor similar to the one found on the Galaxy S3 handset.

Here’s what you can expect from the device, according to the above image:

  • 10.1 WXGA TFT touchscreen display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor (replacing the initial 1.4GHz dual-core processor)
  • 5-megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash and 720p video recording (replacing the initial 3.15-megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash and 1080p video recording)
  • Bluetooth 4.0 (replacing the initial Bluetooth 3.0 on board)
  • USB 2.0
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Light sensor
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

At the same time, the image above could be a fake one – and we do notice the misspelling of “acceleration,” which seems to suggest that – so take everything with a grain of salt.

We’ll also remind you that Samsung has scheduled two special media events for August, one on August 15, and one on August 29, with the latter now hinted to feature a stylus-based device.

Since we expect the Galaxy Note 2 to be unveiled in less than two weeks, should we assume that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be re-announced at IFA in Germany?

Anyone excited?
