Description

Samsung Galaxy Note II sports a slightly bigger, 5.5-inch display, a quad-core processor that gets rid of the slight lag in the original Note, and best of all Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box. The Galaxy Note II is armed with a brighter and larger 5.5” HD Super AMOLED display with resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. While this means that pixel density will be slightly lower compared to the original Note, in reality, the image quality shouldn't suffer any losses, as this screen used the standard RGB matrix, instead of PenTile, which means more subpixels, and ultimately – clarity. The bezel is slimmer, so despite the increase in screen size overall the device is not bigger. Powered by the same Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor that's also found in the Galaxy S III, but clocked up, to the whopping 1.6GHz, the Note II will have no trouble running any application you can think of. The G Note II features an 8-megapixel back-side illuminated (BSI) rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel BSI front shooter. The Samsung Galaxy Note II will ship in three versions - a 16GB, 32GB and 64GB ones, with memory expandable via up to 64GB microSD cards making it possible to have as much as 128GB storage. The second-gen Note is coming with a humongous 3,100mAh battery that should get you through the day.
