The Galaxy Note 2 from Korean giant Samsung is arguably one of the most popular devices in the smartphone market. Its current competitors include the iPhone 5 from Apple and the Nokia Lumia 920. Against even this stiff competition the device fares well. Boasting the popular S-Pen device as well as 2GB RAM, a quad-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera and a massive battery life of 9 hours of voice call, there are plenty of reasons behind this device’s popularity.
There are rumours abounding now however about further improvements to the Galaxy Note 2, whispered recently by the Korea Times. The current Galaxy Note 2 has a brilliant 5.5 inch HD touchscreen display – one of the biggest in the market. The rumour mill now suggests that this will get bigger still and that the new Galaxy Note will come complete with a humongous 6.3 inch HD touchscreen display. In keeping with the Korean company’s technologies, this screen will use AMOLED.
Costs of the device vary and the unlocked version retails at around six hundred dollars. In America the device runs on all the major US carriers such as Verizon, Sprint and AT&T. Prices for the device on-contract vary between all the carriers as one would expect; Verizon has it’s Galaxy Note II variant coming it at around Two hundred dollars.
In terms of sales units, the Galaxy Note 2 sales figures confirm the device’s popularity. In the short space of only 9 weeks, the Korean giant sold over five million devices worldwide. Pretty impressive. The new Galaxy Note 2 as rumored will probably be released sometime next year. It will of course face competition from a variety of sources, mainly the new iPhone, the new tablet offerings from Microsoft and a whole host of other Android devices. Only time will tell if its popularity continues….
