A Korean Samsung insider informed us, that Samsung has stopped the production of the GT-P 5100 aka Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 so that it can be upgraded with a Quadcore cpu! Internally the tablet has the code name “Espresso” which actually clears up some rumors about a new tablet that was going to be released under this name.

We were not given any details about the specifics of the processor, so we are unsure if it will be running the Exynos 4412.  Another unknown is if there are going to be any changes to the US launch of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

This is not the only tablet that Samsung thought worthy of the upgrade as the Galaxy Note 10.1  is also meant to be getting a Quad-core processor.  If you’re more a fan of the 7 inch tablet size, we’ve got no love for you as the Galaxy Tab 2 7 will be keeping its dualcore processor.

Update: Ethan Rasiel, PR Director of Samsung Electronics America, contacted us to update this rumor with the following statement:

“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.”
