It’s just been a few days since Amazon (s AMZN) accidentally published some key details about the upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and there’s already another leak. A new video on YouTube (s GOOG) shows the slate in action (hat tip to All About Samsung).

Check it out below:

Amazon had listed the Galaxy Note 10.1 available for pre-order earlier this week. The website noted that the slate would become available within three to five weeks, but the listing was pulled soon after, with Samsung telling press that the listing had happened in error.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 was first announced by Samsung at Mobile World Congress, and there have been consistent rumors that the device will feature a quad-core processor, something that was supported by this week’s brief appearance on Amazon.

    Where is the palm rejection? What happened with the matte (non fingerprint attractive) clean designed back and gun-metal frames that were showed in the Engadget preview video? Also based on the rumored note 10.1 hardware I would expect less lag when using the S-pen for drawing. This could be the first tablet that is actually useful, but Samsung, please don’t screw this up!

  2. I am still waiting for a video where we see palm rejection in action. It should be able to do that perfectly based on the hardware, but so far I only see people ‘hoverdrawing’.

    • Well, I can tell you that the original Note has palm rejection although not all apps include it. Samsung itself shipped the initial Note with a version of S Memo that didn’t have palm rejection. And perhaps the apps for the Note 10.1 still don’t have it either, and that’s why people use it like that.

      If you ever get your hands on a Note, try Papyrus Beta, it’s the best-performing pen app I’ve seen.

      I agree. after I watched the video I was sceptical that it was actually the note 10.1. I still am due to the fact there was no palm rejection being shown.
