The Galaxy Note 10.1 should also feature Android 4.0, or 4.1 when it is released.

Samsung is also planning to launch a successor to the original Galaxy Note in the fall of this year.

The electronics giant will bump up the phone-tablet hybrid's screen size to 5.5-inches, and it will be unveiled at IFA 2012 that is due to start on Aug. 31 in Berlin.

A recent report also stated that the Galaxy Note 2 will come with a quad-core processor and a 12-13 megapixel rear camera. And even though Samsung will enlarge the screen on the device, the size of the new Note when compared to the original will be the same.
