Yesterday, we told you that US Cellular and Samsung India are accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 2 and today were made public the release dates of Note 2 for several European countries. It seems like Europe will get the upcoming Samsung sensation phone first and you should try to find more info at your local dealers to find out if you can pre-order it.
Samsung says that it will start shipping the Note 2 ‘phablet’ starting with September 27 and the first country that will get it, is Germany. However, almost all European countries will receive the device in weeks 40 and 41 of 2012. It will be released with the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean firmware and it comes in two different colors, Titan Gray and Marble White. You should check web sites of your local dealers and see if they are accepting pre-orders for Note 2.
The release dates for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100 in Europe are these:
- Germany – 27th of September.
- Italy – 28th of September.
- Netherlands, France and UK – October 1st and 2nd.
All other countries in the EU should get the device around the same dates. The device will pack a 5.5 inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, an 8MP camera, 1.6 Exynos quad-core CPU, Premium Suite for Note, S Pen stylus, Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS.
The pricing of this smartphone-tablet device starts from 700 Euro, but it might differ from country to country. Also, Samsung said that they expect to sell at least twenty million units of the Note 2, but I personally think that that number is a little out of reach seeing that numerous phone manufacturers are getting ready to launch new devices in Q4 2012.
The Titanium Grey and Marble White are the available colors, just like the ones used for the Samsung Galaxy S3. If you like big screen devices and you take into consideration the specs of Note 2, then this device is a must-buy and you shouldn’t hesitate to purchase it, even if the pricing is around 700 Euro or $900. Tell us in comments that you think about Samsung’s new Note 2 device and whether you think that it will become an instant success or not.
