Samsung had plenty to announce at this year’s IFA over in Berlin, so it’s no surprise that, coupled with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the company is taking plenty of the attention. Along with the 7.7-inch tablet device, the manufacturer has also unveiled a brand new smartphone, called the Galaxy Note. Then again, with how big this smartphone is, many people are going to wonder how calling it a “phone” at all will make any sense.
That’s right, the Galaxy Note features a bigger display than even the Samsung Galaxy S II featuring a 4.52-inch display. The Galaxy Note measures in at 5.3-inches, with a resolution of 1280×800 and a Super AMOLED Plus display. The rest of the specifications may seem pretty rudimentary, now, though: a 1.4GHz dual-core processor; an 8MP camera around back; and a 2MP front-facing shooter. What may be different, though, is the 2,500mAh battery inside, and the Android 2.3.5 version of Android under the hood, running underneath Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The handset will also feature a functionality for Samsung’s “S Pen,” which will allow you to “write” on the Note, whether that be emails or notes.
Much like the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Galaxy Note is set to launch “in the coming months.” It will be interesting to see how much the Galaxy Note costs, won’t it?
