Samsung earlier this month launched a new and much larger version of its Galaxy Note device, as it continues in its ongoing battle for market dominance over Apple.
The new tablet sports a 10.1-inch screen, making it almost twice as large as its 5.3-inch predecessor. It is expected to be launched globally by the end of August. Samsung Australia did not respond to request for local pricing or availability by the time of publication.
Unlike the first-generation Galaxy Note, which was positioned as a half-smartphone, half-tablet hybrid device, the new Galaxy Note is marketed as a fully-fledged tablet while still offering native support for Samsung’s S Pen, the stylus it debuted alongside the first Galaxy Note in February.
It will run Google’s Android OS and go head to head with Apple’s 9.5-inch iPad. It runs on a 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor and is 8.9 mm thick and 600g heavy.
It is available in both grey and white. It includes a 5MP back camera and 1.9 front-facing camera, is available in configurations up to 32GB with 2GB RAM, and includes microSD up to 64GB.
The new, bigger Galaxy Note also includes a new multiscreen feature that enables two different applications to run simultaneously side by side. Users can open a web page or launch an app on half of the screen while taking notes or drawing with the S Pen on the other half.
"The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a product we are very excited about and will offer our customers a new way to use and experience a tablet device," said Simon Stanford, Samsung's UK telco vice president, in a statement.

Samsung is also reportedly gearing up to launch a second-generation model of its 5.5in Galaxy Note device this month. It is expected to launch at Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29.
