Samsung officially unveiled last week the sequel to its smartphone-tablet hybrid and simply named it as the GALAXY Note II. And like what we initially guessed back in July, the handset brings you a stunning quad-core processor, with storage option of 64GB, and a 2GB of RAM for faster computing. And as far as NFC technology is concerned, the handset has an NFC support, not just as an optional feature only like on original GALAXY Note, but really built on every GALAXY Note II device. And like any other high-end and latest Android handsets out there, the GALAXY Note II offers the sweetest Jelly Bean flavour out of the box. Though it has a lower pixel density than its predecessor, the GALAXY Note II still got a pretty superb high-definition (720 x 1280 px) Super AMOLED screen display at 5.5-inch diagonal.
LTE radio is also under its hood, but it’s still unclear yet if local LTE providers like Smart and Globe Telecom offers compatible frequencies. And because this handset is going to be power intensive, Samsung boost the battery to 3100mAh, which is really a huge power source for smartphone or tablet, or a phablet. And since the GALAXY Note II is designed with business people in mind, Samsung got a deal for you by offering free 50GB of Dropbox storage for 2 years!
Samsung says the GALAXY Note II will hit stores in the US later this year, and still yet to announce availability in other markets. Check out notable specs of Samsung GALAXY Note II after the break.
