Samsung introduces 6.7-inch Galaxy Note 2 Quad: “because we can”

Samsung introduces 6.7-inch Galaxy Note 2 Quad: “because we can”
Samsung's 5.3-inch Galaxy Note pushed the boundaries of what we think is a phone, but if you think Samsung's innovations stop here, you're dead wrong. The Korean company now introduces the Galaxy Note 2 Quad: a 6.7-inch monster phone. Samsung didn't reveal any other technical details about the upcoming device. 

We just wanted to make a phone that is twice bigger than the iPhone. The rest of the specs don't matter, but there's something quad in it, just in case,” Samsung explained. 

Samsung is also preparing a creative marketing campaign to explain the obvious benefits of having such a screen. It features the world's tallest man crying in excitement and two African children testing out the new S Feet interface, where you navigate your phone with your bare toes. You'd need special conductive socks if you plan on using the feature in the winter. The Note 2 Quad will launch with Tap Tap Revenge redesigned for multiplayer supporting up to 4 feet on the same device. The 6.7-inch Super Something Plus Extra screen, of course, repels body odors.

We reached out to Apple for a comment and got the following vague reply: 


We forwarded the comment to Samsung, but they were too busy hiring lawyers to reply.

Finally, NBA ex-superstar Shaquille O'Neal liked the phone, but wished it was a tiny bit smaller. Well, to that we say, get used to it, Shaq! The Note 2 Quad will hit shelves in a month globally, but it will take at least a year for US carriers to figure out how to rename it slightly before bringing it to users.

Ah, this made my day. I'm stuck at work so I'll probably come back every once in a while just to read the "Tim" quote and perk my day up. Better than 5 Hour Energy.

if your measuring surface area, its more than 2x. might not be 4x, but its definitely more than 2x. someone who is taking algebra/trig needs to come in with the equasion. its a lot more than 3.5x2 = 7 lol

Well you have to take the area so you have to find the length of each side. Assuming each phone is a square which its not but that makes the calculations easier. 2x^2=3.5^2 derived afrom a^2 +b^2=c^2 assuming a and b are a square which they aren't. So x = about 2.5 and that times 2.5 is 6.125 is the area of the iphone in cubic inches i guess. Times four would be 24.5 and the square root of that is 5. Usig a^2 +b^2 =c^2 assuming squared 5^2 +5^2=c^2 c = 7 so a 7 inch phone is four times more sa then the iphone. Since i assumed both phones are a square i don't thin it matters. Feel free to check but i am fairly good at math. Taken up to calc freshman in college. 770 on sat math 760 math 2 sat 2 4 ap calc so u can trust me.

I did some calks for fun... A 4.3 inch phone has a screen that is 1.5 times bigger then the iPhone. A 5.3 inch phone has a screen 2.3 times bigger then the iPhone A 6.7 inch phone has a screen about 3.7 times bigger then the iPhone. All these numbers are rounded albeit it should be accurate assuming my square thing is valid. I will do the galaxy nexus for fun so 4.65 inch phone has a screen a 1.8 times bigger screen then the iPhone. (if anyone is interested the iPad has a 7.7 times bigger screen then the iPhone.)

U need to go back to math class dude. 3.5x2=7... So 6.7 isn't even twice as big.

it's nearly 4 times bigger than iphone do the math again.

frommars is right, if you've got a 7 inch screen you need four 3,5 inch screens to fill a 7 inch screen, it is diagonal. if you draw in on a paper. you'ill see frommars is right;)

damn this day I guess :@ they could joke with something related with iPhone -.- I have a Galaxy Note and expecting a sequel, but not 6.7inch, my guess is that, it will be between 5.5-6inch and all the way with quad :P

I'm guessing the same 5.3 but with the borderless design so it makes it smaller in design but with that nice screeen.

hmmm, i would like it that screen a little more bigger, 5.8inch maybe, but we will see about that, if it even will there be a sequel, Samsung Galaxy Note II? dreams for now, atleast we can imagine how it goes when the specs (and SGS3 itself) for SGS3 are finally unveiled -.-' quad core, ice cream sandwhich or jelly bean are a must, oh and a little bump on the screen resolutions! 1280x800 on the note 10.1 was a let down :@ cheers
