Spec-tacular: 5.5″ Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Official

X

Samsung has unveiled its Galaxy Note II and it is a sight to behold.The phablet takes the ethos of the original and injects it with an overdose of sugar. For starters the Note II will be powered by Samsung’s quad core processor, but it has been overclocked to out 1.6GHz. This is but the beginning of a spec frenzy.

The next impressive Jelly Bean is the RAM which has been doubled to 2GB and internal memory that goes up to 64GB. Throw in a 3,100 mAh battery and the Note II begins to resemble more tablet and less smartphone, but I guess Samsung anticipated that when they upped the screen to 5.5 inches.

For the screen, Samsung has used a Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1,280 by 720 (HD). Entertainment is a huge part of the Note II’s allure and the screen, coupled with its 4G technology, will make it a powerhouse device to watch movies or stream videos on.

As expected, Samsung’s S-Pen has returned. Not only does the stylus ease the transition between old-fashioned hardcopy and modern-day digital, it imbues Samsung’s products with a sense of individuality, and that’s a nice safety net to have, you know, just in case Samsung find themselves before an American jury.

 

On the back of the Note 2 is an 8MP camera that is, presumably, enhanced with the same photographic sensibilities found on the Galaxy S3. These would include its rapid burst mode, the ability to capture a still pic mid-video and its Best Photo mode. On the front is a 1.9MP camera that can be used for video calling/video conferencing.

There’s a host of connectivity features on board, including WiFi, WiFi Direct, NFC, A-GPS (which has access to Russian Glonass satellites) and Bluetooth 4.0.

The final noteworthy difference is the Note II will be running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box, equipping it with optimised speech recognition software and Google’s intuitive Now interface.
