Samsung has released the LTE edition of its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, but the model is available only in Korea for now.

Sold through three different Korean wireless carriers, the new tablet also offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE), which allows standard voice calls to be transmitted over the LTE data network.

Hit by lackluster sales for its Tab tablet lineup, Samsung has been promoting the new Note devices. The introduction of LTE brings the Note up to the level of the 4G Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Sporting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the LTE Galaxy Note 10.1 kicks in several other features.

A multi-window format can display two separate adjustable windows on the single 10.1 screen, offering a smoother type of multitasking. The Air View feature lets people browse their photos and other items without having to drill down through different folders.

And with Easy Clip, users can draw on the screen with the tablet's S pen to select and copy text or an image.

The new tablet is expected to reach other countries, including the U.S., by year's end, according to blog site Android Authority. CNET contacted Samsung for further details and will update the story if we receive any information.
