Alongside the Galaxy Gear smart watch and the Galaxy Note 3 phablet, Samsung unveiled overnight at IFA its upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 10-inch tablet.

Also like the Note 3, the Note 10.1 has been given a little cosmetic overhaul, with a stitched leather-look back. It measures in at 243.1x171.4x7.9 millimetres and 535 grams, and is fitted with a standard lithium-ion 8220mAh battery. Sensors include an accelerometer, gyroscope, geo-magnetic and RGB.
