Samsung is known for its powerful smartphones and tablets. However, this new device will definitely confuse you. This is the Galaxy Note. It sports a massive display that will make you wonder if the device is a tablet or a smartphone. Regardless of the confusion, you will almost instantaneously forget about the device’s classification with the software and hardware it has to offer.
This device sports a massive 5.3 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen. It offers a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. This display will give you more than enough room to flick, tap, and touch. It is also ideal for enjoying movies and streaming videos in HD. Its screen size reminds us of the Dell streak and its 5 inch display. This does suggest that this device is too small to be called a tablet and too large to be called a smartphone. It might very well be a hybrid.
Not only does this gadget come with a superior display. It also comes with a superior camera. It sports an 8 megapixel camera similar to that on Samsung’s flagship the S2. This 8 megapixel camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note is capable of recording videos at 1080p. It also comes with a superior front-facing 2 megapixel camera that is ideal for video calls.
When it comes to performance, this gadget will blow you away. It comes packed with a 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor Exynos chipset coupled with 1 GB of RAM under the hood. This chipset comes with a Mali-400MP GPU that will allow you to enjoy more from intense graphics. It is ideal for playing hardcore games and watching high-definition films.
Like the S2, the Samsung Galaxy Note comes pre-installed with the Android OS version 2.3 (Gingerbread). Is this device a smartphone? The HTC Flyer is a tablet that is pre-installed with Gingerbread. Getting confused? Don’t worry. Since Ice Cream Sandwich update is on the horizon, it will not matter. The update will unify both Gingerbread (smartphone-optimized) and Honeycomb (tablet-optimized).
Like the HTC Flyer, the Samsung Galaxy Note will support an S Pen stylus. This means that you can write, highlight, and draw with ease. It will also support Near Field Technology (NFC). This will allow you to communicate with other NFC-enabled devices. It will also allow you to make use of contactless payments.
With these specifications, the Korean tech giant has yet again created another powerful device. This will make people crave for the Samsung Galaxy Note.
