Samsung Galaxy Note II Coming to 3UK and O2

By - Source: Engadget | B 7 comments

Two UK networks confirm plans to carry newest Galaxy Note device.

Despite last week's crushing blow in the U.S. courts, Samsung put on a killer show at IFA with the launch of its much-rumored Galaxy Note II (among other things). 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. So when and where can we expect this impressive little phablet?

Samsung hasn't said much about the launch, but an international launch is expected before the end of the year. The South Korean company mentioned that it would arrive in European, Asian, and Middle East markets in October. This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, considering the U.S. launch of the original Note was several months after the international launch (the U.S. got the note in February of 2012, while it first launched in Germany in October 2011). Engadget reports that when it does debut in the UK, both O2UK and 3UK will be carrying the device. Everything Everywhere, which operates T-Mobile and Orange, doesn't have any information on a launch just yet, while Vodafone UK said '[it's] not involved in this.'

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.

    I'm hoping that this comes to VZW, and with a quad core + LTE chip too. I know that's wishing for a lot...

    I'll be ordering this with the next iPhone. I'm not a fanboy so I can do this. As a developer it is better to use hardware than slow emulators.

    That's about the only reason to buy an iPhone; used :-)
