Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 is getting a revamp before hitting the market, according to reports

Sources from Samsung have revealed the widely-publicised Galaxy Note 10.1 will be quite different on launch.

A spokesperson from the South Korean manufacturer spoke to The Verge, explaining that, despite the fact the company has been flaunting the device as much as possible for several months, a release date is yet to be set.

The 10-inch tablet first made an appearance at Mobile World Congress in February and since then has become quite a visible ‘up and coming' product, but Samsung's spokesperson says that it will be undergoing a bit of a revamp ahead of release.

When we first saw the Galaxy Note 10.1 it appeared very similar in shape and style to Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. In both cases, it seems like Samsung is aiming to avoid any comparisons with Apple's iPad after some fairly intense legal battles over the last 12 months or so. Perhaps Samsung wants to differentiate the Galaxy Note 10.1 further from its Galaxy Tab range?

What wasn't made clear was whether or not this is simply a visual refresh or if the company intends to reconfigure the hardware spec, too. As it was presented at Mobile World Congress, the Note 10.1 featured a 1280x800 pixel resolution display and a 1.4GHz dual core processor on the Exynos chipset.

The Verge reported that Samsung's rep revealed the manufacturer had presented the device at Mobile World Congress to ‘make a splash' and this is an objective it feels was achieved.

Having gauged the reception as being positive, Samsung is clearly now in the process of refining things further.
