Korean firm rumoured to be craving more power.

Just last week, we reported the unveiling of Samsung's dual-core powered Galaxy Tab 2 devices, with 10.1-inch and seven-inch options in the works.

Now, a 'Samsung insider' claims the firm has stopped production of the 10.1-inch model in order to upgrade its dual-core processor to a quad-core version, according to netbooknews.

However, chip specifics are unknown, while it's thought that America may not get the power upgrade, simply receiving the dual-core option as originally planned.

Seemingly, the seven-inch version will retain its original dual-core processor. This is presumably so that Samsung can still retail the device at $249.99 to cover the low end tablet market, a space that the firm still doesn't have any traction in.
