New Galaxy Note released in EuropeSamsung Electronics, the world’s largest smartphone maker, said yesterday it has started selling the Galaxy Note 10.1 in Europe and the Middle East, adding another model to its Galaxy Note lineup. The new model will be available in Britain, Korea and the United States later this month, Samsung said in a statement, without specifying the dates of its release.
The Galaxy Note 10.1, which was first showcased at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, is an enlarged version of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, a smartphone-tablet hybrid.
Both models feature the S Pen, a stylus that enables users to doodle and write on the screen as they do on paper.
The latest model comes in a Wi-Fi-only version and a Wi-Fi and third-generation HSPA+ version, the company said, adding that an additional version that works on the faster long-term evolution network will be released later this year.
The Galaxy Note 10.1, packed with a 10.1-inch screen and a quad-core processor, is part of the tech titan’s efforts to differentiate its Note series from existing smartphones and tablet PCs amid slated releases by rivals.
Apple’s iPhone 5 is widely expected to be launched this fall, while the Nexus 7 tablet, co-branded by Google and Asus, is likely to hit local shelves soon. Yonhap
