The first Samsung device in the Galaxy Note series was hardly a smartphone, but could not be classified as a tablet at the same time. His successor will retain the same intermediate size, but a parallel 10-inch tablet will appear on the market in the Note series. In fact, it can already be ordered at some online stores.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was presented at this year's Mobile World Congress, along with tablets from the Galaxy Tab. Why did the manufacturer decide to split? The fact that Note 10.1 is different from "tabs" because it is the only one that is designed to handle not only a finger but also a stylus.
The new Galaxy Note features the latest quad-core 412-core Exynos 4412 architecture based on the Cortex-A9 architecture running 1.4 GHz. The device has as much as 2 GB of RAM, at least 16 GB of flash memory and a microSD (HC) card slot. The tablet screen was built from a 1280 x 800 pixel PLS array. As far as connectivity is concerned, there is virtually no module - there is Wi-Fi in the standard "n", Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and even 3G module (HSDPA 21 Mbps).
The front camera of the device has a resolution of 1.9 megapixels and the rear - 5 megapixels. The latter is equipped with autofocus, LED flash and Full HD video recording capability at 30 frames per second.
Together with the 7000 mAh battery the tablet weighs 583 grams and has the thickest 8.9 mm, so it can not be considered as a "heavyweight".
The operating system of the device of course is Android, more specifically version 4.0.3 - Ice Cream Sandwich. Traditionally for Samsung, the user interface has been enhanced with the Toouch Wiz, and with the standard stylus, S-Pen applications are installed, allowing for handwritten notes to be created. Affiliation to the Note series finally commits.
The new Galaxy Note 10.1 is available in a pre-sale system for $ 750 for a white color version with 16GB of memory.
