September 2, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sammy fans, you favorite phone maker is in no mood to disappoint you. Samsung’s first ever, actually the world’s first ever smartphone with a 5.3 inch screen, is ready to arrive in your midst. Christened Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3, the smart device has been showcased at the IFA trade show in Berlin. We are sure you will fall in love with a display larger than a smartphone, but slightly smaller than a tablet. We, in fact, did.

The Galaxy Note 5.3, which comes under a ‘new class of mobile devices’, features a Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 and is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core processor.

It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread designed for phones, and sports an 8 megapixel main camera capable of recording 1080p video and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. It also has LTE and HSPA+ connectivity.

Another feature that the Galaxy Note boasts is a stylus called S Pen. It enables the user to use what is known as ‘Free Capture Mode’ that allows the user to capture any area of the screen using the S Pen and also to draw objects like any usual stylus.

The phone comes with an app called S Memo that can store handwritten notes and drawings. The company has said the phone has artistic freedom of a paper notebook coupled with Samsung’s smartphone technology and services, allowing users to create, edit and share with more style than ever before.

There is no word on the pricing and availability of the Galaxy Note 5.3 as of now. Hope it works better for Samsung than what Streak did for Dell.
