We got the leak about an affordable Note II version with lower-res screen coming to Europe, and we also got the FCC filing for a Samsung Grand 5-incher coming to the US, with 480x800 pixels of resolution, 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, and 2,100 mAh battery...

That's about 186 ppi. It's pretty over-powered if you ask me, a quad-core Exynos chip for a 480*800 screen. That's freaking unbelievable. If the unlocked version were $299-$399, it would be a steal. That's highly unlikely though since the Samsung GALAXY SII costs around that much and has pretty much the same specs, only without the 5 inch screen and quad-core chip. I do think this phone would have a crazy high battery life.

Smart move by Samsung, you'll get a taste of phabsomeness at an affordable price, and probably want to switch to the real deal when the Note 3 is out, strategy worked extremely well for other Sammy devices. It however has to come at or below the Nexus 4 price.

For people without access to Google Play's price of $300 like myself, I'd find this irresistible. Although I already have a note and the screen is just gorgeous, so I'll pass and get the Note 3, hopefully they'll bring back 16:10 in the form of 1920:1200 or 1440:900.

Extremely low resolution for this size of screen!

I'm glad someone has brains. You're going to run all of that power, and never use it because of a crappy screen and everything will look crappy.

Might as well get the Note II. I'm sure prices will drop a little by then.

they should make a 4 inch. 720p screen with quad core exynos.

That would indeed make up for a very very low screen pixel density (ppi). But quad-core on a low-res screen would account for higher benchmarks.. hahaha.. but still this is non-sense.
