Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Delayed for new Quad-Core Upgrade

We have been awaiting Samsung new linkup of Galaxy Tablet devices for months now and with Sammy being plagued by numerous amounts of device rumours, its hard to keep track of what’s actually coming and what we think is coming our way.

Well one of the devices that is definitely coming is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 but it won’t becoming as soon as we think as since its first unveiling at this year’s Mobile World Congress show news has been a bit spares on the 10.1 inch tablet.

However reports are now coming in that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been delayed due to Samsung inserting a nifty new Quad Core processor upgrade for the release of the Android Tablet device.

A Samsung insider, speaking to Netbook News, stated that Samsung has halted the production of the GT-P 5100 (otherwise known as the Galaxy Tab 10.1) in order for the devices to receive a quad-core CPU upgrade. Thoughts are that the upgrade will be Samsung’s latest Exynos 4412 quad-core chip which is capable of running at 1.5GHz.

This would be the same chipset that is used in the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy SIII (or S3) and will assist in all of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich related tools and features.

Samsung Galaxy Tab range of Android Tablets are widely considered to be the biggest Rival to Apples iPad range of tablets and the inclusion of the Quad core processor will bring the previously announced Galaxy Tab 10.1 into the same specification field as the latest Apple iPad.

Samsung have recently been plagued by delays as its Galaxy SII handset range has had numerous issues upgrading its Samsung TouchWiz Ui to the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

It’s a bit of an annoyance for those waiting for the 10.1 Galaxy Tab 2 but in the end Samsung are doing it to offer a better product… Can you blame them?
