Samsung Galaxy Note II
U.S. availability was one of the last remaining pieces of the Samsung Galaxy Note II puzzle, but that has been thrown on the table already. And it turns out that whichever wireless carrier you are subscribed to, chances are that a flavor of the jumbo-sized smartphone will be available only at a 2-year-contract's distance.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular, as it was just announced by the Korean manufacturer itself. That ought to help Samsung reach and surpass the anticipated milestone of 20 million units sold, which would be twice the commercial success of its predecessor. 4G LTE connectivity on the Galaxy Note II will be available on all models, except the one headed to T-Mobile, which will rely on 42Mbps HSPA+. 

Just like its international version, the U.S. Samsung Galaxy Note II variant will be equipped with a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor clocked at 1.6GHz. Or in other words, once released, it will surely be one of the most potent Android smartphones on the market, especially considering the fact that 2GB of RAM come standard. Delivering all the eye-candy is a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display with resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio. 16GB of on-board storage will be available, in addition to a microSD slot capable of accommodating cards of up to 64GB. The beefy 3,100mAh battery should be well capable of lasting through a day of moderate to heavy usage. 

On the software side of things we have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, meaning that users will get the best the platform has to offer right out of the box. Of course, Samsung has thrown in plenty of features and apps taking advantage of that redesigned S Pen, such as Idea Sketch for quick and easy note taking, and Easy Clip for outlining, saving, sharing, and pasting any content displayed on the screen.

While the exact pricing details regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note II are still up in the air, it is stated that the device will launch by mid-November. Further information is to be announced by the respective wireless carriers.
