Samsung confirmed on Twitter that the company's Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet will be released in the UK on August 16.
"Be one of the first to buy the new Note 10.1, only at the Westfield brand store in Stratford from Thursday 16 August," Samsung said on Twitter, referring to the Stratford, London store.
While Samsung remains quiet on pricing, the 16GB version is listed for £479.99 with delivery on Expansys. Mobicity is selling the device for $789, including VAT, but does not stock for the UK primarily as it is based in Australia and New Zealand. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is £300 on Samsung's store.
Samsung did not confirm which version of Android will run on the device. 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich seems to be the most likely version, since it is pre-installed on the Samsung Galaxy S3. 4.1 Jelly Bean is available on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, so Samsung may update the Note 10.1 in the future.
The Samsung Galaxy Note uses a 1.4GHz quad-core chip and 2GBs of RAM, with a rear and front camera. It is available with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of storage. Connectivity options are Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi only, along with HSPA+. 4G LTE is not widely supported in the UK.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launching in a matter of days, consumers may be advised to wait until the event finishes before making purchase decisions.
