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.
