In the last week of August Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was unveiled. The first Galaxy Note performed quite well in the market despite its unorthodox form factor which had never been introduced in the market before. This device which is a hybrid of a smartphone and a tablet now has a new model out on the market which is far better, superior and powerful than its predecessor ever was. Samsung seems to have a special unit just for China because it is being reported that the company will soon launch dual SIM Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in China. All of us in other countries around the world will have to make do with the single SIM one.
Samsung has released a couple of interesting and successful products this year. Starting with the Galaxy S III which has already sold more than 20 million units around the world. It has also outsold the iPhone 4S in America. Without a doubt, the Galaxy S III is one of the best Android powered smartphones out these. Next up, notwithstanding the various mid-range smartphones Samsung releases, was Galaxy Note 2. This has been a device that has been looked forward to for quite some time. What Samsung has done with Galaxy Note 2 is phenomenal and soon enough, sales figures will definitely reflect that.
The Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD display which is just perfect. Its powered by a 1.6GHz quadcore processor aided by 2GB of RAM. On the back there’s an 8 megapixel camera, the front houses a 1.9 megapixel camera. It’s available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB memory options, all of which feature a microSD slot for external memory expansion. There’s a 3,100 mAh battery providing power for all this hardware. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ships as the default operating system on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
An image posted online reveals a Galaxy Note 2 unit with a dual SIM tray. There are not many reputed manufacturers which develop high end dual SIM phones. Samsung does have a couple of Android powered dual SIM smartphones, but they don’t offer the power and prestige of a high end device such as the Note 2. This device will certainly do well in the Chinese market, which happens to be a booming smartphone market on its way to surpass even the US.
Apart from the dual SIM stray, this version of Note 2 will not have any new features that other Galaxy Note 2 units don’t have. Dual standby as well as support for WCDMA and GSM networks will be there in dual SIM Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The dual SIM tray has one slot for a regular SIM and one slot for a micro SIM. No word as yet on the pricing or availability of this particular Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
