Samsung has already released the awesome and “insanely huge for a smart phone” device, the Galaxy Note II in South Korea. And the really smart phone is hitting the US shores very shortly, on October 24th to be precise. The smart phone is filled with so many features, with the new S Pen, and the bigger screen. For people who are coming from the first generation Galaxy Note, it will not be a big deal. But people who are upgrading to the new Samsung Galaxy Note II from a smaller, or an entry level smart phone, the Galaxy Note II will offer a lot.
Just to refresh our memory, the specs of the device are as follows:
- 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD Display, Gorilla Glass 2
- Quad Core 1.6 GHz processor
- 2GB RAM
- 8MP Camera rear, 1.9MP front
- 3100 mAH battery
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Wi-Fi b/g/n
- Accelerometer, Gyroscope, brightness sensor
- 16 GB internal memory, expandable via microSD
- S-Pen with bundled apps and Air View – hover pen for preview
- Software: Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
Now, the 1.6 GHz quad core processor is a real treat for those who enjoy watching HD videos on their smart phones. The massive 5.5 inch screen will definitely help you with that as well. There is a bigger 3,100 mAh battery, which will support the more powerful processor and the bigger display, compared to the 2,500 mAh batter on the first generation Galaxy Note.
To complement the quad core processor, the smart phone is equipped with 2 GB of RAM. And since Ice Cream Sandwich is already too old, the Samsung Galaxy Note II will come pre loaded with the latest and greatest iteration of Google’s mobile operating system, the Android 4.1, or Jelly Bean.
