Looks like the Note II release is drawing closer.
Samsung put on a killer show at IFA last month with the launch of its much-rumored Galaxy Note II and a host of other products. The tablet is the follow on to Samsung's hugely successful Galaxy Note and packs a slightly larger display as well as a quad-core Exynos CPU and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. At the time, Samsung revealed very little about the launch. However, it seems the Galaxy Note II is now up for pre-order for customers in the United Kingdom.
Crave reports that Phones 4u is listing the phone for pre-order with contracts through O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone. Pricewise, you can actually snag the phone for free if you're willing to sign a contract that costs over £40 per month. If that doesn't float your boat, expect to pay anywhere between £50 and £320 for a less expensive contract.
Phones 4u has plenty of details on plans and contracts for each carrier, but all that is a bit useless without a release date. Luckily, the site has a ship date for the Note II as well. The current delivery date listed on the site is October 2, which is just a week away.
The Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch display (up from 5.3-inches on the first Note), a quad-core Exynos CPU, 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, LTE, WiFi, an 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash, a 1.9 MP front-facing camera for video calls, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
