Samsung has announced that its beastly Galaxy Note smartphone will be hitting British stores from November 17. The Note, which was announced around a month ago at Sammy's Unpacked event at IFA, is the most impressive Samsung phone to appear on European shores. It sports a dual-core Exynos CPU at 1.4GHz (up from the 1.2GHz chip in the Galaxy S II), along with a full gigabyte of RAM and a massive 5.3-inch, 1280x800 SuperAMOLED HD display. Samsung's promoting the phone as the ultimate note-taking device for business professionals, as it also comes with a pressure-sensitive stylus that can be used anywhere within the UI.
No word on price points just yet, and none of the UK networks have announced any deals to carry the device, either. That said, you can probably expect to have to part with £500 or more to get your hands on this monstrous piece of technology. Join us after the jump for Samsung's full press release.
UK LAUNCH DATE ANNOUNCED FOR SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE
New Android mobile device to hit UK shops in Mid-November
3rd October 2011, London, UK – Following the recent global launch at IFA, Samsung has today announced that the latest device to join its Galaxy range, the Galaxy Note, will be available in the UK on 17th November 2011.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’re delighted with the overwhelming reception the Galaxy Note has received since it was announced earlier this month and are looking forward to offering Samsung customers a whole new smartphone experience. The Galaxy Note is a great example of Samsung’s passion for innovation by bringing to market a brand new category of mobile products. It is our fastest handset to date and brings together all the benefits of our award-winning smartphone technology and services.”
The Galaxy Note combines the benefits of a notebook with the portability of a smartphone. Thanks to its 5.3” HD Super AMOLED screen, the largest, highest quality display available in any phone, consumers can view movies, photos, and documents, as well as play games on the device with crystal-clear clarity.
Not only that, an advanced pen-input technology called the S Pen and a full touch screen mean owners of the Galaxy Note can easily create and consume more content whilst on the go, with minimum scrolling and screen transitions. With a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy Note is Samsung’s fastest handset to date, combined with HSPA+ enabled super-fast connection means there’s immediate access to content and increased download speeds for streaming videos in real-time or chatting with friends online.
The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in the UK across major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online.
