Already, Samsung is offering the Note II in Amber Brown, Ruby Wine, Marble White, and Titanium Grey. At this point, it is still unknown if the color option will be released internationally.

It sports an Exynos 4412 Quad chipset, a Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, and Mali-400MP GPU. Furthermore, it has 2GB of RAM, and a choice among 16, 32, and 64GB of storage. Expansion is possible for up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Powering the device is a Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery that promises up to 980 hours of standby time and as much as 35 hours of talk time.
The Note II’s primary camera has an 8-megapixel sensor, autofocus, video recording capability, and LED flash. Meanwhile, its secondary camera has a 1.9-megapixel sensor.
