Although we were a bit disappointed to hear Samsung’s plans to introduce the LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 several months after the non-4G edition’s release, we knew very well that the waiting was going to be worth it.
And not just due to that bump in connectivity speeds, but also because we suspected Sammy was going to launch the new tab with Jelly Bean on board. Now the Note 10.1 LTE has been released in Korea, and our guesses have proven spot on.
The new 10-incher is up for grabs on all three major South Korean operators, SK Telecom, KT and LG U+, and comes with Android 4.1, VoLTE support, as well as cool features like Multi-window, Air View and Easy Clip.
The S Pen support is of course still there to test your creativity, while the rest of the tech specs are no different from the international Wi-Fi and 3G models. That means you’ll get your choice of on-board storage, ranging from 16 to 64 GB, a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4412 CPU, a 1280 x 800 pix res display, 2 GB of RAM, microSD support, Bluetooth 4.0, a 7,000 mAh battery, and dual 5 MP/1.9 MP cameras.
The LTE model of the GNote 10.1 is expected to be coming to other markets besides Korea by the end of the year, including the States, but for now all eyes are on Samsung to upgrade the existing tabs to Android 4.1. How about it, guys, what would you rather get first, the LTE Note 10.1’s release or the JB bump on non-LTE models?
