We're live at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 in Berlin, where Samsung has just announced the latest device in its Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy Note 2! The Note 2 is the widely-anticipated successor to last year's original Galaxy Note, and Samsung's improved upon that device with souped-up internals, re-vamped software and a brand new design.
The Galaxy Note 2 sports a 9.4mm thin chassis with a 5.5-inch 16:9 display at 1280x720 resolution. The screen itself is an HD SuperAMOLED panel, similar to what Samsung's included on the Galaxy S3. Visually the Galaxy Note is similar to the Galaxy S 3. The home button, the rear of the phone, the overall shape all strike a resemblance to the smaller sibling. Like its predecessor, the Note 2 sports a Wacom-based pressure-sensitive "S Pen," which has been redesigned. The pen is now taller and thicker, the button on the side now has texture to it, and it has a rubber tip which creates a subtly different action on the screen.
On the inside, the Galaxy Note 2 is powered by a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad CPU -- the same CPU found inside the S3, only at a higher frequency. That's backed up by 2GB of RAM and 16,32, and 64GB of storage. Samsung will offer the device in both 3G/HSPA and 4G LTE flavors, though for the moment there's no info on which version will be offered in which markets. On the software side, there's Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, backed up by Samsung's TouchWiz Nature UX. And like the original Note, pen-centric apps like S Note have been included to take advantage of the new Note's unique hardware.
Availability has yet to be announced, but we'll update you just as soon as any announcement is made. In the meantime, keep it locked to AC for continuing live coverage of the event, and hands-on reports with more info on the device itself.

Is Neowin anti-Android or something? They've reported on nearly every other new device from IFA except this one!

Pro Microsoft and Anti-everything. every news you see from IFA in the front page is about MS products..

effectively making this thread true http://www.neowin.ne...e-on-microsoft/

Verge covers every products without bias and i seem to going to verge more than neowin now.

I wish they would/could make a Windows Phone version of the Note (or at least a Windows Phone device with those specs).

It's larger but I guess it's the design that makes it look smaller.

I should have waited for this, instead of going for the GSIII - they only person I ever really call these days is my wife, so the added size is not really a disadvantage at all.
