Given the success of Samsung’s first Galaxy Note phablet, it was unsurprising for the Korean giant to dabble their hands at the form factor again. At the IFA Mobile Unpacked event yesterday, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note II that comes with more powerful hardware and runs Android 4.1 out of the box.
The Galaxy Note II has a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display (1280×720), 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, HSPA+ or 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 8MP and 1.9MP cameras, NFC and 3100mAh battery.
The S Pen with the Galaxy Note is now longer, thicker and ergonomically designed for the perfect grip. Some of the S Pen features present in the Galaxy Note II are Easy Clip, Idea Visualizer, Air View, Popup Note, Quick Command and Screen Recorder.
The phablet will be available in Marble White and Titanium Gray in October in Europe, Asia and Middle East. Americans will get the device sometime later this year.
