Samsung intros the Galaxy Note 2 and it sports a massive 5.5-inch display that's
As expected, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 2 today at the IFA conference and this Android-powered device blurs the line between phone and tablet with its massive 5.5-inch display.
We thought the original Galaxy Note was quite the handful with its 5.3-inch screen but the Galaxy Note 2 kicks it up a notch with a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen. With a true 16:9 aspect ration and a 1280X720 resolution, the Galaxy Note 2 is sure to proivde a great viewing experience for movies, games, or browsing the web.
Like the original, the Galaxy Note 2 will come with an integrated S Pen to give you a capacitive stylus. The new S Pen is longer, thicker and designed to be more ergonomical than the previous version and look for the new Galaxy Note 2 to give you new ways to take advantage of it.
For example, the Air View feature will let you hover over content like emails and get a preview of it without having to fully open it. You'll also be able to jot down notes, annotate pictures and web pages, as well as a pop-up note which will let you keep one of your notes on the screen while using a different app.
The Galaxy Note 2 will have a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and a massive 3,100mAh battery. Thankfully, the Galaxy Note 2 will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and this should include the Samsung TouchWiz UI and new features like Google Now.
You can expect the Galaxy Note 2 to be released later in 2012 and the device will definitely be coming to the United States but there's no word on a release date or a price.
