Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was finally revealed at the IFA 2012 held in Berlin a couple of days ago and just as expected, the buzz surrounding this smartphone-tablet hybrid is now starting to get bigger, although enthusiasts believe it couldn’t go past Galaxy S3’s popularity.
Galaxy Note II is evidence that the time for bigger, stronger and more powerful mobile devices is coming. People, especially tech enthusiasts, want to have a smartphone that functions more than a computer and manufacturers like Samsung just know what to do: give its device too much power and great features.
So, if you’re one of the people who don’t really look at the physical aspects of a smartphone (but even that Galaxy Note II can give), you’ll understand when I say Samsung Galaxy Note II is just too much to resist. Here are three of the features that made this device almost irresistible.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Majority of Android users are still trying to upgrade their devices to version 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich, but Google already released 4.1 Jelly Bean. While it is clearly an incremental update, there are many features any Android user would surely love to see. Initially, Galaxy Note II was rumored to get the ICS but the recent official announcement confirmed reports that it will instead showcase Jelly Bean upon release.
Samsung Galaxy Note II will be using Samsung’s Exynos chipset clocked at 1.6GHz with four cores. It would also be getting 2GB of RAM and that would leave us to believe that this hybrid would never give its users system lags of some sort. In short, as far as performance is concerned, you’d be getting the best here.
There are still a few devices today that offer this kind of power. Even Apple’s iPhone 5 will have a hard time matching up with this. What’s more amazing about smartphones with really powerful processors and sufficient RAMs is that they can always have better displays. Galaxy Note II will feature 5.5 inches HD Super AMOLED technology that would give a resolution of up to 1280 x 720 pixels.
4G LTE Connectivity
Most of the times, people don’t actually need super-fast internet connection especially when their data usage is capped. But for those who have unlimited plans and need stable connection almost every minute of the day, Galaxy Note II could be just a perfect option. 4G LTE has recently been rolled out in the U.S. and majority of the internet users are curious how fast it really is. There are many things one can do to find out and one of those is getting the second generation Galaxy Note when it’s released.
Basically, Samsung wanted to make Galaxy Note II as perfect as possible and whatever the company did, everything has fell into place; latest version of Android, quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, fast 4G LTE data transfer, massive battery, high resolution, unique features. In short, the things that you could possibly ask for in a smartphone were packed into this hybrid device. While I believe it couldn’t become as popular as Galaxy S III, it is more than enough to stir tech and Android communities.
