Samsung Galaxy Note II: hands-on photos

Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.

The unveiling of the Galaxy Note II will come as little surprise to those enamoured with the category-that-shall-not-be-named between tablet and phone.

At the Samsung Unpacked event, as part of IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, the company unveiled the successor to the original Galaxy Note. The Note II sports a bigger 5.55-inch screen over its predecessor — an AMOLED display, with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Inside is a 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and it runs Android Jelly Bean (4.1).

No local pricing or availability for Australia has been announced, but it will be available from October in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Lexy Savvides travelled to IFA as a guest of Samsung.

Honestly, this i possibly the least interesting thing unveiled at IFA so far. Another giant Android Phone? Yawn. Nothing we haven't seen before.

The Note has a bit og a cult following now for being so un-usual, so yes it is actually interesting.

Also interesting that Samsung are truely listening to their customers. They wanted a slightly bigger s-pen and samsung did it. They wanted an even bigger battery and samsung did that. Can't really say the same of other companies out there at the moment

Your right, It's suprising but Samsung did really listen this time.

They only thing still to test is if they listen to thier customers complain about slow updates. Fingers crossed.

Samsung haven't been too bad for the high end devices. I would like to know though is if the s-pen works on the touch keys.....i always found it odd that it doesn't on the original

I agree but i have a Galaxy Tab i purchased in January still waiting on ICS. Seeing as ICS was released last year i personally feel a 9 month wait is to long.
