Samsung Galaxy Note 2: Worth The Cost

One of the most awaited Android gadget to be unveiled from Samsung is the Galaxy Note 2. Its predecessor which is the Galaxy Note was an unexpected success. It has currently sold around 7 to 10 million units, and continues to be extremely much an existing handset. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is still yet to be launched a couple of weeks from now at the IFA press conference is still on the prospect.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display. The fact that the first Galaxy Note made use of a 1280 x 800 pixel quality with a 5.3-inch display of 285 PPI, there is an expected increase in resolution with the Galaxy Note 2 if Samsung desires to make complete use of the principal concept regarding the original Galaxy Note, particularly a large but highly detailed display.

Just like the previous version, the S Pen will definitely be the Galaxy Note 2’s stylus. We anticipate that the basic technology will remain the same but according to sources that the Wacom suggests that a latest model of the S Pen may act as a wireless headset with a built-in microphone.

In terms of processor power, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will definitely use a similar processor to that of the Galaxy S2. In short, the Note 2 will have twice the power than the leading Galaxy S3 with a RAM of 1.5GB. Rumor has it that the RAM may be upgraded to 2GB on the Note 2, so expect it to function like a beast, well, if it gets the update.

The Galaxy Note 2 will be an Android powered with Ice Cream Sandwich version. However, the latest news that the Korean company might be climbing up to the 4.1 version of Jelly Bean, and there is no way that they would leave the Note 2 with an outdated version of Android than its previous models, so expect that an update pretty soon after the release.

The snapper of the Galaxy Note 2 will be getting a 13-megapixel which is more than the latest Galaxy S3 which offers an 8MP. Shutterbug enthusiasts would expect more upgrades in the aperture and sensor sizes as well. With a camera like this, it is no doubt that you will be getting more vivid and high definition photos as well as high quality videos.

To date, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s carriers remain unknown due to the fact that the product is still yet to be launched. However, top mobile network carriers that offer the Galaxy Note will surely offer the Note 2 as soon as it will be released on 29th of August. The cost of the unit normally varies on a carrier-to-carrier basis so the actual cost of the unit has yet to be known until Samsung announces it on the 29th of August.

The Galaxy Note 2 may be quite pricey because of its exceptional features. While the Galaxy Note is offered at £ 15.75 per month on a contract deal, we foresee that the Note 2 will probably be priced a little bit higher than the Galaxy Note which costs at £449.95 for Pay as you go contracts.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to be more developed and enhanced than its predecessor in all aspects. With more megapixels, more vivid display, faster connectivity and more power, users may also take advantage of its latest Android features such as Android Beam and Google Now.
