Apart from the fact that it features the Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS out of the box, and is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, the major talking point about the Galaxy Note II is that it features an all-new Air View feature. Samsung states that Air View allows users to hover with the S Pen over an email, S Planner, image gallery, or video to preview the content without having to open it. This feature enables users to quickly search and see more information in one view without screen transitions.

Here is a quick look at the highlighted features of the Samsung Galaxy Note II:

  • 5.5-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a 1280 x 720 pixel density
  • 4G LTE, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi HT40, NFC
  • GPS with GLONASS and A-GPS support
  • Bluetooth v4.0 with USB 2.0 Host
  • 8 megapixel AF/ Touchfocus camera, 1.9MP VT Camera, BSI front facing camera
  • 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, all with expandable support up to 64GB
  • 2GB RAM
  • MHL for AV out

The brand has redesigned the S-Pen and Samsung states that the new S Pen is longer, thicker and ergonomically designed for the perfect grip. Therefore, it provides a more precise, comfortable, and natural writing and drawing experience. 

Samsung states that the S Pen’s advanced features also provide enhanced capabilities to capture ideas instantly and to combine handwriting with any digital content directly on the screen. By simply pressing the dedicated S Pen button, the S Pen recognises that users want to clip or edit the selected content on the screen. The Easy Clip feature allows users to outline and crop any content on the screen in any shape to save, share or paste. Once done cropping the image, users can freely edit the cropped content through colouring, shading, or their own personal handwriting.

Another expression feature called Idea Visualizer allows users to add illustrations by handwriting keywords on the S Note. It provides illustration images that match the handwritten keywords. It’s an illustration match function that will allow users to express, organise and visualise ideas in a more innovative and creative way. Users can even customise and add in their own illustrations library.

Other highlighted features found here include Pop-up Note, Quick Command, Screen Recorder and a host of other interesting features that raises the bar over the previously launched Galaxy Note smartphone. For those who are worried about major battery drain, Samsung has added a 3100mAh battery.

At the time of its announcement, the Samsung Galaxy Note II was reported to be set for a launch in October starting with major European, Asian, and Middle East markets.

Once the phablet is launched, those who have pre-booked it on the eStore, will receive an email notifying them of its availability.
