Galaxy Note 10.1 gets a stylus bay along with processor change

Well how about that - a quad-core Exynos processor isn't the only revision made to Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. According to a couple of pre-release photos spotted by Tablet Community (no relation), it'll also get a slot for the S-Pen stylus built right into its slate body. The lack thereof was definitely noted when the device was revealed at MWC earlier this year, though it now appears that the hardware shown at the show was very early indeed.

Galaxy S III may have dual-core Snapdragon in the US

We've seen this before: a highly-anticipated flagship phone that gets slightly different internals for the US market. LAst time it was the HTC One X, which gets a dual-core Snapdragon S4 on AT&T instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 found on the international version. Now a Samsung source has indicated a similar situation for the Galaxy S III. The Korea Times reports that an unnamed Samsung executive claimed that while the European version of the Galaxy S III will get the Exynos 4 Quad, US versions of the phone will go with a Qualcomm processor instead.

Samsung announces Exynos 4 Quad for the Galaxy S III

With just over a week to go until Samsung's "next Galaxy" event, more and more information is coming to light about the Galaxy S III - if that's even what it's going to be called. The latest tidbit comes from Samsung itself: they've announced that the upcoming phone will feature the Exynos 4 Quad, as previously rumored. This clashes with benchmarks for a phone labelled the Galaxy S III posted to the AnTuTu database earlier today, claiming that the phone used a dual-core Exynos architecture.

Samsung delays Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to add quad-core processor

When Samsung showed off the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 at Mobile World Congress, it was met with a resounding yawn. Aside from Ice Cream Sandwich, a MicroSD card slot and a slightly redesigned exterior, it was basically identical to the previous generation. But according to German site NetbookNews, the tablet has been delayed in order to get a more substantial upgrade: a quad-core Exynos processor. That would be a major win for anyone wanting some substantial performance gains over last year's Galaxy Tab 10.1, and may be enough to warrant a second look from those dazzled by the Tegra and Snapdragon processors on other tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 may get redesign before release

We've already seen at least one major shift for the Galaxy Note 10.1, that being the addition of a quad-core Exynos processor. But according to The Verge, that may not be the only change that the stylus-packing tablet gets before it comes to market in June. Or not - Samsung said today that there's no firm release date for the Galaxy Note 10.1, leading to speculation that the hardware shown off at Mobile World Congress was very early indeed. While the Galaxy Tab 2 series should begin coming out at the end of the month, the Note 10.1 may have quite a bit of flux left in it's development cycle.

Samsung Exynos 5 dual-core to support USB 3.0 and more

Samsung and their Galaxy S III have both been a hot topic lately. With little details on the phone, or the rumored quad-core processor that will be under the hood. While we are still hopeful for any quad-core the new Samsung Exnyos 5 dual-core looks quite impressive too. New details are confirming support for high-res displays and even USB 3.0 and more.

Samsung exec claims Galaxy S III will have quad-core Exynos processor

More Galaxy S III rumors - today must end with a "y", then. In its latest batch of corporate teasing, Samsung has found a surreptitious way to whet our appetites for the new flagship phone long before they even announce when they're announcing it. The Korea Times quotes an unnamed Samsung executive, who said that the company is looking to lower its dependence on silicon giant Qualcomm and go with an in-house solution. That will come in the the form of a quad-core Exynos system-on-a-chip, though the exact model, speed and capability are all up in the air at the moment. That's all you get; check back in another week for a tiny nugget of new information.

Android Community Weekly: December 4, 2011

This week in tech news we've had our share of reviews, unboxings, and even some much needed software updates. We had heard Monday the ASUS Transformer Prime would be launching December 8th from a Newegg pre-order page. Needless to say, we got the official word from ASUS confirming that same date Wednesday which turned out false. The Prime will arrive stateside on December 19th. The device is simply amazing, and we've got an excellent hands-on to prove it. Though our official review isn't out yet - you can check out the one over at our sister-site SlashGear. Yet another video taken compares the Transformer Prime to the Apple iPad 2 - a great matchup indeed.
