Yesterday saw Samsung announce details of the new Galaxy Note 2 device at the IFA Berlin show. The widely expected announcement saw details of the sequel to last year’s ‘phablet’ device unveiled. It has the following specifications:
- a 5.5″ Super AMOLED HD screen (the original Note had a 5.3″ screen)
- 1.6 GHz quad-core CPU
- 2 GB RAM
- 16-64 GB of storage as well as a micro SD slot for expansion
- 8 megapixel camera
- Jelly Bean (Android v4.1) operating system
The most obvious feature though continues to be the S Pen stylus. Some new features include ‘Air View’ which allows users to hover over items with the stylus in order to see a preview.
The Galaxy Note II will be released in October 2012, prices yet to be confirmed.
