Samsung Announces the Galaxy Note The Largest Smartphone
Samsung Announces the Galaxy Note The Largest Smartphone in the World!
Rumored to release alongside the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Wave 3, the Samsung Galaxy Note flew surprisingly below the radar of gadget aficionados. The details on the device were thin, until Samsung recently announced it officially at the IFA.
Coming in at hefty 5.3-inches of length, the Galaxy Note attempts to blur the line between phones and tablets. A relatively surprising addition is the now out-of-fashion stowaway stylus, which can be used for several tasks such as taking notes, drawing and so on. The phone comes pre-loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The UI is layered with Samsungs TouchWiz UI on top, which offers an all new S-Pen interface, designed specifically by Samsung to put that good olstylus to best use.
Beneath the pretty interface, a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor beats at the heart of the phone. Developed in-house by Samsung itself, this is the same processor that will power its Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet. The huge screen boasts of a WVGA Super AMOLED display, while two cameras 8 megapixels at the back and 2 megapixels at the front carry out your snapping, recording and video chatting duties admirably.
Despite its colossal length, the device is surprisingly easy to handle, thanks mainly to its 9.65mm width and a surprisingly low 178 grams of weight.
