We’ve been hearing about Samsung’s follow-up to the ultra-cool (back then) Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet hybrid introduced not so long ago. And so the Galaxy Note 2 was officially introduced last night at IFA 2012 in Berlin.
People who’ve been waiting for the official announcement immediately went crazy about what Samsung just unveiled. And looking at the specs of the Galaxy Note 2, it seems like a pretty powerful device indeed.
- 5.5? HD Super AMOLED display (1280×720) pixels
- 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 8MP rear camera, 1080p video recording
- 1.9MP front-facing camera
- 16GB, 32GB, 64GB internal storage
- up to 64GB via microSD card
- HSPA+ 21Mbps or 4G LTE 42Mbps
- WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, dual band 2.4GHz & 5.0GHz
- WiFi Direct, NFC, MHL, Bluetooth 4.0
- GPS with aGPS support
- 3100mAh Li-Ion battery
Honestly, the Galaxy Note 2 is not really a pretty exciting device after all. Well, if you own the Galaxy S3 and the original Galaxy Note – you’ll do fine with those two gadgets rather than get the Galaxy Note 2. I mean, it’s just a bigger Galaxy S3 with a stylus and faster processor. If you’re after Jelly Bean, well wait a couple of days more and you’ll have it running on your Galaxy S3.
So, who’s getting the Galaxy Note 2? Words on the streets say that it will be released in the Philippines by November.
