At its recent ‘Unpacked’ event, Samsung launched the second-generation of its premium smartphone. The Galaxy Note 2 has been created along the same lines as the Galaxy S3 and the device can easily be mistaken for a slightly bigger version of the S3. The Galaxy Note 2 shares similarities with the Galaxy S3 on the inside as well though it provides users with a somewhat tablet-like interface. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch screen with a touchscreen HD Super AMOLED display housed inside it. The display has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and beams images in 1280 x 720p resolution and offers TouchWiz UI functionality as well. Running on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), the smartphone is powered by 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor.
The phone comes with a choice of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB on-board memory and can support microSD upgrade for up to 64 GB. The phone comes with 2GB of RAM as well. The Galaxy Note 2 comes with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear-facing main camera. The main camera offers functionality like HD video recording, LED flash and Auto Focus. Connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 include Glonass support, A-GPS, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE support (on availability) and HSPA+ support. The smartphone comes with a stylus and offers support for S Pen. Samsung has not revealed the pricing for the Galaxy Note 2 at the moment. The company has stated that the device will be offered by carriers across Europe and the US and will be available across the globe by the end of October.
