The HD Super AMOLED screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is 5.5-inches, as widely expected, and is 16:9. That means it’ll have a smaller resolution than the former model, at 1280 x 728 instead of 1280 x 800, but it’ll fit widescreen video content perfectly.
A 1.6GHz quad-core processor is running the show, along with 2GB of RAM to speed things up further. There’s an 8-megapixel camera on the rear, Sammy’s traditional 1.9-megapixel one on the front, and it will run, get this, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from the off.
Network support for 4G LTE will be built into some localised versions, while the rest will get a HSPA+ version. There will be 16GB, 32GB and 64GB handsets available, and in two colours, titanium gray and marble white.
The included stylus, the S Pen, will be longer, thicker and more ergonomic, while a new feature that’s been mentioned – Air View – allows the user to hover over content to open it without having to tap on the screen.
