The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date is pegged at October this year, now that the phone has officially been introduced at the IFA in Berlin. Sporting a 5.5-inch screen and running Jelly Bean, the much talked-about device comes with the S Pen in tow. A 1.6GHz quad core processor and 2GB of RAM keep things flowing smoothly, and a 3100mAh Li-ion battery allows users to enjoy media and be productive without worrying about power limitations.
The phone’s 1280 x 720p HD Super AMOLED screen is a nice way to complement its 8MP rear-facing auto focus camera with LED flash, while a 1.9MP front-facing imager is also provided for video conferencing over the compatible 3G HSPA+ or 4G LTE network. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities with a microSD expansion slot which expands memory by up to 64GB if required.
JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, remarked, “Last year at IFA, we launched the Galaxy Note, which opened a new category of smart mobile devices. This year, again at IFA, I am proud to announce the Galaxy Note II, which will encourage users to ‘unleash their inner creativity.'”
He continued, “With a perfect viewing experience and unique and differentiated features, users can discover information and capture their ideas faster, express thoughts freely and manage tasks more efficiently. 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.”
The new S Pen is both longer and thicker, and gets a brain upgrade offering an enhanced experience and helping users capture ideas with greater ease. The new Galaxy Note also features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, in addition to S Beam support and AllShare functionality.
About the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date, the company says the device will come to markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East in October in marble white and titanium grey. There isn’t any official confirmation on its US launch date though.
