Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Release Date is Aug. 16

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will be released on Aug. 16 in the U.K., according to an announcement made by Samsung Mobile U.K. on its Twitter account.

The tweet did not mention anything about the device's price, but a few retailers began accepting pre-orders already.

The 16GB Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is expected to sell for £400, and the Wi-Fi+3G model will cost slightly more at £480.

Samsung announced that it would begin shipping the all new Galaxy Note 10.1 earlier this month.

"Providing an intuitive experience and armed with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM for enhanced performance, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is designed to simplify the process of capturing ideas, accessing information and multitasking, making each easier and faster allowing people to express their ideas in an efficient way," said Samsung in the press release.

The company hopes to capitalize off the success it enjoyed with the original Galaxy Note by improving the inside and making it bigger.

"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," the release continued. "As well as being able to consume content such as videos photos, document and the Internet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also gives them power to produce, create and customize that same content- something they won't get from any other product on the market."

Along with a 1.4GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, the device will also feature a 5-megapixel rear camera, and 1.9-megapixel front-facing shooter.

The Note 10.1 also comes with Smart Stay, a feature that tracks the owner's eye to ensure that the screen is always on while being looked at, and Pop Up Play that allows the owner to watch a video anywhere on the device's screen while simultaneously performing other tasks.
