Just ten weeks after Samsung Galaxy Note made an appearance at IFA, Berlin, Samsung announces its release in UK on November 17. Galaxy Note is one of the most anticipated Android handsets of this year with qualities of a smartphone and tablet. A unique capacitive stylus makes the handset ideal for professionals for note taking, scribbling, sketching, and annotating.
Samsung Galaxy Note sports a 5.3inch HD (1280x800p) Super AMOLED screen, the largest screen on any handset. The size is large for a phone but the extra screen estate also enables enhanced rendering and viewing of movies, videos, apps, and games in impressive clarity. The smartphone uses an advanced pen-input technology called the S Pen which minimizes scrolling and screen transitions on the touchscreen. The pressure-sensitive stylus has its own on-device storage and is easy to use across the UI in a number of apps. It allows intricate sketches and recording. Handwriting recognition is also enabled in some apps.
Powering Galaxy Note is a 1.4Ghz dual core processor, another first of its kind. There’s also HSPA+ support so you can enjoy high speed connectivity for quick downloads, video streaming, chatting, and browsing. There’s an 8mp camera at the back equipped with LED flash and a front camera for video chatting.
Samsung’s flagship device will arrive in 16GB and 32GB models, along with microSD support to extend storage. Apparently, some of the models will come with an NFC chip but only for specific markets.
Samsung Galaxy Note’s sighting at FCC encourages us to think the US release isn’t far off. A handset with the latest Android 2.3 version, the largest touchscreen to boot and the fastest dual core processor on board – it’s no wonder people can’t wait.
