After sending out a pretty obvious invite about its special event on August 15, Samsung has just officially launched its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. The Korean firm announced that the S Pen equipped device will be available globally from August in WiFi and 3G varieties, with an LTE version coming later in the year.
It will come with Samsung’s very own Exynos 4412 chipset with a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, Mali 400MP GPU and 2GB of RAM. As its name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will have with 10.1″ screen, featuring a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, making for a pixel density of 149ppi. With Galaxy Note 10.1’s multiscreen feature, users can effortlessly utilise two different applications side-by-side simultaneously for true and easy multitasking. Users can view Web pages or videos, or launch other applications while writing or sketching ideas with the S Pen on the other half of the screen.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, but its key selling points is its S Pen, as Samsung leans heavily on the creative and productivity elements of the tablet. This time, the tablet will offer a special slot for the S Pen, instead of making you carry it separately. The 6.5mm pen is allied with the S Note application that launches instantly when the pen is removed from the tab or when the user double-taps the nib on the display.
Just like the original Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1 will come with some exclusive apps to take advantage of the stylus, including S-Note, S-Planner, Crayon physics, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch, and Polaris Office. There’s also palm rejection support, so you won’t hit any buttons by accident with your palm when drawing with the S Pen.
Other specs worth a mention include its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 5-megapixel (rear) and 1.9-megapixel (front) cameras. It will come packed with a 7,000mAh Li-ion battery.
Watch it in action, and enjoy:
