Samsung Galaxy Note to be Launched in the UK in November

October 4, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Samsung has officially announced that its latest Galaxy device, the Galaxy Note, will be released for UK retailers on November 17th. Earlier, a UK release of the device was expected to happen only sometime in early 2012. The device comes with a lot of high-end features, and it brings the benefits of a notebook and the portability of a smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy Note, which is a tablet/phone hybrid, is the first phone to go over the 5-inch screen mark. The device features a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a whopping resolution of 1280 x 800.

The handset, which comes equipped with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

 

The device also comes with 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear facing camera capable of 1080p video recording, and a front facing 2 megapixel camera for video chats.

You will also get a unique capacitive stylus and apps that support pen input. A 2500 mAh battery is available along with the device, and the microSD card slot support cards of up to 32GB.

There has been no confirmation about when the device will be launched in the US. As you might know, the device was spotted earlier at FCC and was seen supporting AT&T’s 3G/4G bands of North America.

It will be interesting to see how the Galaxy Note takes off in the UK. Although the screen size is good for watching movies and playing games, it will be a bit difficult holding a huge device against your ear for long conversations.

As you might remember, Dell had a crack at the phone/tablet hybrid idea with the Dell Streak. That device was not so bad, but its software was not impressive. It was running a creaky old version of Android that didn’t take advantage of the big screen.
