Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the second generation of the phablet developed by the South Korea-based company. The smartphone is one of the most popular Android-powered devices currently on the market, Samsung reporting that more than 5 million units have already been shipped since it debuted on the market in September 2012.
If you aren’t already one of the 5 million Samsung Galaxy Note 2 owners, but you were planning on purchasing the high-end device, maybe you would like to know that the gadget is now available at Verizon Wireless, “America’s largest 4G LTE network.”
The device is available at Amazon Wireless on a two-year commitment with Verizon, having a price tag of $299.99. You can purchase both the Pearl White Galaxy Note 2 with 16 GB of internal storage and the Titanium Gray 16 GB model of the popular Android smartphone, both having the same price tag of $299.99.
I remind you that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 boasts an impressive 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels, Gorilla Glass 2 protection, and 16:9 aspect ratio, making it ideal for watching movies, videos, but also for web browsing and gaming.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is underpinned by the mighty Exynos 4 Quad processor developed in-house by the South Korean company, with a quad-core Cortex A9 at 1.6 GHz and quad-core Mali 400MP graphics processing. It also comes with 2 GB of RAM and microSD card slot that supports up to 64 GB of extra storage. The primary camera unit has an 8 megapixel sensor with autofocus, LED flash, face and smile detection, simultaneous HD video and picture recording and 1080p video capture, while the front-facing 2 megapixel camera supports HD video calls.
It features connectivity options like WiFi a/b/g/n, dual-band, WiFi direct, WiFi hotspot, DLNA, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, and, of course, 4G LTE support.
Besides the powerful hardware platform, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also comes with S-Pen stylus that gets the most out of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Premium Suite pack, that integrates stylus optimized applications and features, plus the useful Multi View multitasking feature, that allows you to simultaneously run two applications on the device’s screen.
