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.

6.1 or 6.2 is more logic than 6.7 inch

This is definitely an April iFools joke. If you believe this then why not wait on the just announced iPhone 4SX with a 3.65" Super iRetina display and 513MB of RAM.

Why Samsung wasted too much money on 6.7" instead of using existed 7" or 7.7" super AMOLED?
