Samsung announced the official release date and price for its refreshed Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet today. The Android device hits stores in the U.S. on Oct. 10, with pre-orders available starting on Sept. 27 at midnight Eastern, and costs $549.99 for the 16GB model or $599.99 for 32GB of internal storage.
The Galaxy Note 10.1—2014 Edition was unveiled earlier this month by Samsung at a special event in Berlin, and comes running Android 4.3 out of the box with the latest version of the company’s own TouchWiz UI on top. The updated software brings a number of new features, including Air Command for easily accessing the most popular S Pen apps, a new magazine-style user interface called My Magazine, and enhanced Multi Window support for viewing two applications at once.
The redesigned tablet has a similar look to the current model, but features the same faux-leather back seen on the Galaxy Note 3 along with the same updated S Pen. The tablet comes equipped with a 10.1-inch 2,560 x 1,600-pixel 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, an 8220mAh battery, microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. It will be available in black or white models.
