Samsung today announced its latest Android flagship smartphone in its Galaxy line, the Samsung Galaxy Note. It features the world's first and largest 5.3" HD Super AMOLED display, an expansive high-resolution smart screen that provides an immersive and best in class viewing experience while ensuring smartphone portability and on the go usability. Additionally, an advanced pen-input technology, called the S Pen, combines with Galaxy Note's full touch screen to introduce a unique user experience. Taking full advantage of the large display, Galaxy Note users will be able to multi-task, create and consume more, with fewer interruptions, while on the go.
Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU, the Galaxy Note is running on Android 2.3/Gingerbread and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as quadband UMTS/HSDPA+/HSUPA at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, WiFi b/g/n, aGPS and Russian GLONASS. It comes with a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with supporting flash LED on the back and a front-facing 2 megapixel camera for video telephony. It's either available with 16 GB or 32 GB internal memory, which can be expanded with microSD memory cards and measures 146.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm, including the 2.500 mAh Li-ion battery.
The incorporated digital S Pen can be used for accurate sketching and artwork, while superior handwriting recognition allows ideas to be freely captured and shared with other devices without the need to perform any additional digitization; handwritten text is accurately converted into digital characters.
Together with commercial availability of Galaxy Note, Samsung also announced the launch of "S Choice", a new category menu under the Samsung Apps, with applications specially designed for Galaxy Note's S Pen feature. New applications offering will include Soonr Workplace, OmniSketch, Zen Brush, ComicBook! and iAnnotate PDF.
Galaxy Note's high-resolution display ensures that e-books, PowerPoint presentations, news apps and web-pages can be viewed comfortably with minimal scrolling or zooming. Minimizing the need to switch between applications, Galaxy Note's HD Super AMOLED screen is large enough to allow meaningful split-screen operation and true multi-tasking; the most frequently used native apps can be operated side-by-side, reducing interruptions.
The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in the European markets starting from Germany in November. The Galaxy Note will be available with major operators including Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefonica, and Vodafone in Europe.
