According to NetbookNews' Korean Samsung insider, Samsung have stopped the production of the GALAXY Tab 2 10.1 so that they can upgrade it to a quad-core processor. Previous specs pointed toward the next-gen GALAXY tablet to sport a dual-core processor, but it seems Samsung have come to their senses.
Samsung's internal codename for the GALAXY Tab 2 10.1 is "Espresso", and this quad-core processor will sure give it the... shot.. it needs to compete with other tablets. No specifics were given on the new upgraded quad-core processor, but it will most likely be one of Samsung's Exynos chips.
Samsung are also updating the GALAXY Note 10.1 to a quad-core, and we should hopefully see more of this rolling through Samsung's smart devices. Remember, their "next GALAXY" is unveiled in just over a fortnights time, and I'm pegging my bets on that sporting a quad-core processor too.
