5.5-inch phone/tablet will pack a quad-core processor and LTE/HSPA+

Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930) is trying to not let Apple's legal attacks hinder its stellar U.S. sales performance.  It's been busy announcing new models of late, including the Galaxy Note II, which features the S-Pen technology.

The first generation Note was a modest sales success, but the next generation brings far more to the table.  It packs largely in-house hardware -- a gorgeous 1280 x 720 HD Super AMOLED display, a beastly 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos system-on-a-chip, and 2 GB of DRAM.  

Both the latest HSPA+ spec and LTE will be supported and the device will ship with Google Inc.'s (GOOG) latest and greatest Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean".  The body designs -- like HTC Corp.'s (TPE:2498) new Windows Phones and Nokia Oyj.'s (HEX:NOK1V) Lumia line -- will come in an array of colorful polycarbonates.

If I didn't love my Note's stylus so much, I would likely be looking to get a Lumia 920, but because I do, the Note 2 looks incredible to me. They really put a lot of thought into the stylus integration this time, made the body narrower while making the screen larger and non-Pentile, and increased the battery size.

So glad that it's being released in the US early this time. Hope it won't cost an arm and a leg off contract.

what is this mental disorder with people buying a new phone every three months,Jesus people. It like upgrading from sandy bridge to ivy bridge , nothing really changed. Now the leap from sandybridge to Haswell i could see. these are examples. Besides do you realize how stupid people look talking on huge phones might as well take my 17.3 inch MSI and hold up to your head and talk on it. but i am for personal choice. My girlfriend has this note.

Some people care more about how well a smartphone works as, you know, a smartphone over how some prick looks down on him for using a big phone. Unless you have girly hands, it's fine for handling, even with one hand.

I got my Note used, in anticipation of the new one, and it can always be an upgrade for my siblings or anyone else. Why do you care so much about me changing phones?

There's a HUGE number of changes with the Note 2. Larger screen (yet slimmer width), better stylus, larger battery, 3x the speed (from S3 to quad core Exynos), and a gazillion software enhancements. That's like going from a P4 w/ XP to Ivy Bridge w/ W7.
