The Galaxy Note 10.1 was initially announced at the Mobile World Congress in February in and was supposed to be powered by a dual-core Exynos chipset. Later, though, Samsung decided to delay the tablet and equip it with a better CPU. Samsung is still mum on the new chipset, but the latest rumors and leaked benchmarks suggest a quad-core Exynos ticking inside the final Galaxy Note 10.1 – the same powering the Galaxy S III smartphone.

As mentioned before Samsung is holding an event on August 15 in New York. Chances are Samsung will finally reveal the revamped Galaxy Note 10.1 there and we’ll get the answers to all our questions.
Until now, if you wanted Samsung Galaxy S III with LTE support, you’d have to sacrifice some processing power, namely the quad-core Exynos chipset, which does not support LTE. Evidence of this can be found in both the US and Japanese versions of the S III with LTE support, both of which are set to have dual-core processors.
It seems that Samsung has confirmed earlier rumors that there will be a version that will bring the best of both worlds, by being able to stuff in a separate LTE modem chip alongside the quad-core Exynos. This will allegedly bump the thickness of Galaxy S III up to 9mm, but that’s not a major increase considering the device currently comes in at around 8.6 mm. Word has it that it will also retain its 2100mAh battery.
Samsung has announced that the quad-core LTE model should hit the Korean market sometime next month. There’s no word whether it will come to other markets as of yet.
