Recently at the IFA 2011 technology show in Berlin, Samsung presented their Galaxy Note which boasts a huge 5.3-inch touchscreen.
The Galaxy Note reminds us of the Dell Streak 5 which had a 5-inch display, however it is no longer being sold by Dell. Currently there is no other smartphone on the market that can rival the Samsung Note for screen size.
It comes with a stylus, which makes this smartphone much more than just that. It blends together traditional devices; a tablet, smartphone and PDA all rolled into one device. It has also been described as a smartphone/tablet hybrid.
The Samsung Galaxy Note has a Super AMOLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. JK Shin, the President of the Mobile Communications Business Division of Samsung said, “It is the biggest and has the highest quality display of the smartphone industry.”
The phone will be running of a 1.4GHz processor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It features two cameras, a rear-facing 8 megapixel camara and a front-facing 2 megapixel camera. It weighs just 178g, a little more than most smartphones.
It is scheduled for release in Europe in Q1 2012 with a release date in the US sometime after that.
