Last week, a rumor surfaced stating that Samsung was halting the production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 so that it could upgrade it with a quad-core processor instead of the dual-core processor that was originally planned. It looks like those rumors were false.
Samsung got in touch with us to let us know that the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was still going to be launching with a dual-core processor instead of the rumored quad-core. Here’s what Samsung’s Director of Public Relations (Consumer Business Division), Ethan Rasiel, had to say regarding production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 launching with a quad-core instead of dual-core processor:
“The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will come to market worldwide as planned with a dual-core processor. Rumors about production delays or changes to the product are false.”
So there you have it, folks. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is going to launch with a dual-core processor, not a rumored quad-core.
Since that rumor has been squashed, I wonder if this really opens the door to the report that Samsung is also planning on launching another tablet, along with the Galaxy S III at their Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 event in London. I guess we’ll be finding out on May 3!
