Samsung had previously confirmed the new Note would be released in August, but had declined to give an exact date.
The company remains tight lipped about the tablet's price, though it is expected to retail in the top end £400-plus price bracket.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 was originally unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February.
Samsung has since revealed a reworked version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. The new version features a powerful 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of internal RAM.
The S-Pen stylus technology previously seen on the Note smartphone also features on the 10.1 tablet.
The 6.5mm S-Pen docks directly in the device and when removed automatically launches a number of custom apps, including Adobe Photoshop Touch.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 also boasts a Multi-screen feature that lets users have two different applications run and be displayed side-by-side.
The new Note has been confirmed as running Google's Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, rather than the newer Jelly Bean version.
Samsung has also said the tablet will feature several of the software features seen on its flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone, including Smart Stay and Pop up Play.
Samsung's latest tablet will feature a 5MP auto-focus rear camera with LED Flash and 1.9MP front-facing camera. It will be powered by a 7,000mAh battery.
