Samsung unveiled a new bigger smartphone, the Galaxy Note 2, at its “Mobile Unpacked” event in Berlin on Wednesday. The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to compete with Apple’s new iPhone 5 Which is Yet to Come to Market.
“A year ago, the Galaxy Note created a new line of devices that combined the smartphone and tablet PC,the Galaxy Note 2 will offer a more innovative and unique experience” said Shin Jong-kyun, the head of Samsung’s mobile phone division. He added
looks like a Galaxy S3 smartphone,the phone has a 5.5-inch screen and, the company claims, is more comfortable to hold thanks to a thinner bezel. It comes with a stylus.
This SmartPhone has some innovative functions Like it can detect your movements. For example, when you pulls out the stylus, a memo screen will automatically appear and Once the stylus is inserted again, the main screen is restored.
The “Air View” function alows users to send e-mail, manage the photo album and arrange schedules with the stylus. It also has a “S Beam” function with which you can send music files to other handsets at the speed of just two seconds per song (approx 10-15 MB per second).
Boffins said Galaxy Note 2 would be relatively safe from Apple’s patent infringement suits because many functions are different from Samsung’s other smartphones.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sports a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1,280 × 720, making it just a hair larger than the original’s 5.3-inch display. Samsung has updated its UI and the overall experience, after the release of their latest products in the US, including the Galaxy Note 10.1 and SIII. The battery has capacity, from 1,800 mAh to 3,100 mAh.
- The quad-core 1.6 Ghz processor, 8MP camera that’s capable of 1080p video recording, and the fact that it will be running Android Jelly Bean are all good updates for people looking to use this device on the go. The device has more S Pen functionalities that the previous model, and continues to improve upon what Samsung started with the first Galaxy Note.
The Galaxy Note 2 will be available with 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, upgradeable with a microSD card. It will be launched in October in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and will be available in either white or gray. There’s no word yet when it will be launched in the US.
