Hot on the heels of the hugely popular iPhone 5 from Apple we have seen another premium smartphone released which is set to also become a massive success with the public. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 hit stores this week and hopes are high for this larger than average model.
We saw the original Samsung Galaxy Note launched back in December 2011 but at first the device received mixed reviews with many experts unsure whether the large size would appeal to consumers. These fears proved unfounded and the model went on to sell over 10 million units. With such great success it was inevitable that a second generation version of the phone would be released and it has become available in the last few days. Samsung are hoping to shift over 20 million units of this new device thanks to improved screen size and a number of other boosts. The model can be purchased off contract for prices of around £500 while contract deals of around £33 per month will secure a free handset for consumers. Anybody looking for this phone on a Pay As You Go deal can expect to pay a price of £300.
The current trend with mobile phones is for them to incorporate very large displays and the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 really pushes the boat out by featuring the largest display ever featured on any phone. The Super AMOLED screen on this model measures 5.5 inches and offers a number of benefits to users especially when it comes to performing tasks such as web browsing, video playback and gaming. The Note offers much more than just a large screen however. Behind the scenes a powerful Tegra 3 chipset boasts a quad core 1.6Ghz processor so operation speeds are superb and the handset also sports 1080P HD video capture an an excellent 8 mega pixel camera.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is yet another excellent smartphone from the Korean manufacturer and follows up models like the original Galaxy Note and the Samsung Galaxy S3 After months of speculation the handset is now available as either part of a contract package or SIM free.
