Samsung to launch Galaxy Note II 10.1

Samsung has sent out invites for a launch event on 15 August, but the device in question could already have broken cover.

Samsung's invite for the show, which is ahead of the Unpacked event that promises the Galaxy Note II, shows only a tablet-shaped device that hints at something stylus-related. That could well be the Samsing Galaxy Note II 10.1, which actually got detailed at the end of last week, courtesy of a particularly enthusiastic online retailer.

Thanks to that leak, we even have some of the specification, which shows a step up from the original Galaxy Note 10.1, launched back in February.

The processor is the big upgrade here, jumping from a 1.4GHz dual-core chip to a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. The device also sports a 10.1-inch PLS TFT display with a resolution of 1280x800-pixels, two cameras, including a five-megapixel snapper with auto-focus, LED flash and 720p video recording. It also comes with what's described as an 'innovative' pen with improved accuracy control and pressure sensitivity. The operating system at launch is Ice Cream Sandwich.

Hopefully we'll get a full set of details at that launch event, along with some shelf dates. Saying that, with one US retailer now shipping, it's likely to be available very soon after that launch in the UK.
