Upgrade rumoured for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Upgrade rumoured for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

18 April 2012

Tablet could be launching with quad-core processor

It was only launched in February and as yet, hasn't made it to the high street. But when the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 finally does hit those shelves, it might do so with an all-new processor.

The tablet is down to hit the UK in May, with the launch model initially showing a 1GHz dual-core processor, along with the same 1280x800 PLS display as the original Tab 10.1, a three-megapixel camera, matching VGA lens plus a choice of 16GB or 32GB internal memory. Ice Cream Sandwich is the Android operating system.

Most of that specification still stands, although a 'Korean insider' has told Netbook News that production of the tablet has now stopped, so that it can be upgraded with a quad-core processor. The new tablet is codenamed 'Espresso', although the processor remains a mystery. Speculation does, however, point to the Exynos 4412 chip in the upgraded Android tablet.

With Samsung hosting a 'Galaxy' event in May, there is every chance that Samsung could 're-launch' the tablet with a new processor. Although that is likely to be the supporting act to the Samsung Galaxy S III launch. Interestingly, the same site also speculates that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be getting a quad-core processor too, but that could be a little further down the line.

Why the rush to upgrade? Presumably, Samsung is acutely aware of how fast the tablet market is moving and how competitive it is and will be, especially when Google enters the fray. If the company is asking a top-end price, it needs a product to match.
