Details and pictures of Samsung’s Galaxy Note II have been leaked to PocketNow an hour before the device’s scheduled announcement at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The tablet-smartphone hybrid resembles an enlarged version of the Galaxy S III, featuring a 5.5-inch, 1280 x 720 HD Super AMOLED screen. Inside, the device offers an unspecified (perhaps Exynos) quad-core 1.6GHz processor, a large 3,100mAh battery (compared to the original Note’s 2500mAh size), 8MP Rear Camera, 1.9MP Front Facing Camera, and either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage, expandable via microSD. In terms of wireless connectivity, the Note II will feature HSPA+ 21mbps, plus 4G LTE depending on the model. Despite the larger battery, the Note II will be slightly thinner than the original at 9.4mm versus 9.65mm, but it’ll be heavier by 2 grams.
According to PocketNow, the Note II will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, modified by Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz skin. The device will be sold in Marble White and Titanium Grey, the latter which is pictured below. It will be made available in October in Europe however no information has yet emerged on US availability or pricing. Stay tuned to DroidDog for further updates.
