Samsung Galaxy Note II Arrives In October
Samsung has revealed the latest version of its Galaxy Note at the IFA exhibition in Germany, called the Notebook II.
“For anyone who wants to be creative, expressive and unique, the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be the ideal device, allowing users to live a life extraordinary,” says JK Shin, Samsung’s president of IT & Mobile Communications division in a press statement.
The new Note II is thinner than its predecessor, while sporting a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen and some claims is a look-alike of Galaxy S III.
It has a1.6GHz quad-core processor running Android’s latest version of its operating system, Jellybean 4.1. It also utilises the S Pen digital stylus, which is handy for jotting and drawing on the device’s screen.
Note II also comes with HSPA Plus or 4G LTE connectivity, fast screen transitions and minimal app load time to let users multi-task using their phone, claims Samsung. With its 3,100mAh battery, users can enjoy mixing work and play with the phone without suffering from limited power.
The 1080p video-capturing rear-facing camera is 8-megapixel while its 720p video-capturing front-facing camera is 1.9-megapixel. Memory options range from 16GB to 64GB with an expandable micro SD memory slot.
The Note 2 will arrive in stores in October, initially in some European, Asian, and Middle Eastern nations. No announcements yet were made when the new device will be launched in the U.S. and Australia.
