Remember that black Samsung GALAXY Note II? Forget it

Remember that black Samsung GALAXY Note II? Forget it
The other day, pictures of a Samsung GALAXY Note II dressed up in black got everyone excited. The photo was said to be from a hi-resolution press rendering, and the black variant of the device was expected to be showed off at CES starting January 8th, or during February's MWC. As it turns out, the picture was a mock-up made by a Samsung fan and it appears that the model is not going to be available in black.

Still, that doesn't mean that we won't see the Samsung GALAXY Note II wearing different colors at CES 2013 or MWC 2013. We still have the word from an anonymous tipster who says that we will see the phablet available in Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine later this year. Currently the model can be purchased in grey or white.

With a lot of potential Samsung GALAXY Note II buyers wanting to buy a version of the phone in classic black, the picture showing the GALAXY Note II in that color was warmly greeted. Perhaps Samsung will take note of that reception and get around to producing it.

Really you want to compare it with the note2. it has outdated old 1GHZ A9 dual core and the note2 has a quad core 1.6 GHZ. can't even be compared to the note1 with 1.4ghz dual core. What about s-pen. Oh so you are just interested in large screen... Sorry the note from samsung is not all about larger screen but combined with performance, S-pen stylus and the software that works with this s-pen.

Quad core with full hd zopo is said to be coming by end of January. Let's see what it comes with. Comparing with S3 (no stylus) also it is cheap.

aren't that shameful carrying a big phone with a brand name ZOPO? Cmon man! S3 and Note II is much much better with a better brand! and note II and s3 will have much better software updates.TouchWiz nauture ux have many software tricks and features you cant compare ZOPO to SAMSUNG

At that price i can replace it every year with newer one having the almost the latest SW version ... Xperia P is still on ICS and in all probability that device will never see 4.2.x in it's lifetime.

Think of it as the calm before the storm...CES 2013 is happening in just over a week from now and there is bound to be tons of news coming out from that.
