Galaxy Note 10.1 2014

An update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) has started to roll out to owners of the devices. The update that is rolling out is for the WiFi-only version although updates for the 3G and 4G LTE models should be following soon. Like other devices, the update primarily brings the improvements that are part of Android 4.4.2 to the devices and is light on Samsung specific updates. One item we are waiting to get reports about is whether Samsung included their Magazine UX. The Magazine UX was introduced this year when Samsung rolled out some newer tablet devices, although Samsung has since backed off that UX and indicated it will work more closely with Google on being more consistent with Android design concepts.

If you have the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), you can check for the update by going to Settings -> General -> About phone -> Software updates. It may be a few days before it shows up for your device though.

Samsung 2014 Note Pro

Samsung made a pretty big deal of its upcoming Galaxy TabPROs and NotePRO tablets at CES this week, but that’s no reason to ignore the LTE-powered Galaxy Note 10.1 which should be released in just a few months.

The tablet passed through the halls of the FCC this week and all signs are pointing to a release on Verizon in the US.

The LTE edition of Samsung’s hit tablet has LTE bands 4 and 13 (which are used by Verizon). The Wi-Fi version is currently being sold by Samsung for $599.99— expect the LTE variant to come with a pretty hefty price tag.

According to a tipster over at Android Central, the 2014 edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1 will cost £499 for the 16GB version with WiFi in the United Kingdom. The tablet launched last week in the United States and now retailers in the U.K. are getting them as well. The tispster snapped a photo of the device on display at Currys/PC World. Although the Galaxy Note 10.1 is on display, they aren’t expected to start being sold in the U.K. until next week. Also, note that it says there is a “quad core processor” rather than the octa-core one in the United States. This is likely just a typo.

Galaxy Note 12.2 stops by Bluetooth SIG with similar specs to the updated Galaxy Note 10.1

Galaxy Note 12.2

That 12 inch Galaxy Note tablet showed up just before the Note announcements at IFA, but we didn’t see an announcement alongside the Note 3 and Note 10.1, and, honestly, I think many of us had forgotten about it afterwards. It looks like the massive 12.2 inch tablet is persistent, though, as it recently appeared in a Bluetooth SIG filing under the model number SM-P901, as seen above.

Now, this filing doesn’t necessarily confirm the device, since it could technically still just be a device that Samsung is toying with and may not widely release. But considering this filing does give some weight to the rumors that suggest it’ll use the same 2560 x 1600 display that the Note 10.1 uses, it might be something Samsung is readying for a massive holiday launch. The filing also shows Android 4.2 on board, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. (obviously.)

We still don’t know when Samsung plans on announcing this device, but we’ll be sure to keep you filled in on anything we hear.

US release dates for Galaxy Note 3, Note 10.1, and Galaxy Gear smartwatch scheduled for early October

samsung_galaxy_note_101_2014_whiteEveryone’s excited for Samsung’s new devices that were announced earlier this week, and we can now stay excited until early October. While other countries might be receiving their Note 3, Note 10.1, and Gear by September 25, US customers will have to wait another week for theirs. US carriers are announcing their dates separately, and it seems like AT&T will begin shipping their devices October 1, T-Mobile by October 2, Verizon by October 10, and US Cellular with a vague “October” launch date.

It’s interesting that carriers are selling the Gear smartwatch considering it has no cellular device inside of it. Still, you can pre-order from all carriers except for US Cellular. Check out the source links.
