At least two Android devices from Samsung have been hitting the top stories lately. They are the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 that was first spotted at the Mobile World Congress in February this year, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that has been rumored to be introduced later this month in Berlin. But it looks like the former will be coming in early, in Hong Kong that is. According to a Korean-based publication, Samsung officials reportedly confirmed that it will release the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 next week, particularly August 9, in Hong Kong.
Yonhap News notes that the first-generation Galaxy Note was a favorite among many Chinese-speaking consumers due to its S-pen feature, which allowed them to easily input text by drawing Chinese characters. Specs-wise, what we currently know is that it will sport a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor and Android 4.0 a.k.a Ice Cream Sandwich. But unless Samsung officially confirms the details of the “almost twice as large” Galaxy Note, let’s take it with a grain of salt in hand.
