Samsung May Delay Galaxy Tab 2 to Add Quad-Core Chip

By - Source: Netbook News | B 13 comments

Samsung is rumored to be delaying the launch of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 because of a slight hardware revision.

Instead of a dual-core processor, the tablet will be shipping with a quad-core SoC. If true, then it is likely that we will be seeing Samsung's own Exynos 4412, based on ARM Cortex-A9 architecture, in the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. There was no information whether Samsung will be able to keep the May 13 launch date.

German website Netbook News also reported that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will also be getting a quad-core processor.

Samsung declined to comment on the Netbook News report.

    Strange. I thought the current Galaxy Tab line was the second generation Tab?

    This would be worth a delay in my opinion.
    Would be nice to have more competing products in the quad-core zone, even if absolutely nothing currently takes advantage of it in mobile devices at this time.

    Futureproofing done well.

    Bad move. More CPU performance is nice, but it doesn't sell tablets.

    Display quality&size, software, battery life, weight and price are much more important than the CPU inside.

    Well, you need a bit more oumpf to drive a higher resolution.
    So maybe the quad upgrade is the precursor of Samsung's version of a "retina" display.

    The current 10.1 Tab is the second generation, but the first gen was just a 7 inch tablet. So the next generation will be the second 10.1 inch Tab. I know, that is inconsistent, but I believe that is the thinking.

    range has been gaining popularity; following its popular range of Corby devices, the manufacture has now grabbed eyeballs with its latest Android-based smartphone is the I5801. Also known as Samsung Galaxy 3 is a lower end Android-based smartphone and would give a tough competition for budget smartphones such as Spice Mi-300.

    Samsung has a series of tablets that are sold in moderate to high range with good specs and features. The tablet gets some real good specs at affordable price. Read the full Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 review to know more about this device.
