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.

That would be my perfect phone, but the Note 2 isn't just about the screen. I'm not sure if Samsung could get the same functionality with WP8 as it can with Android customizations, as the stylus integration is what really makes this phone unique.

I'd get it in a heart beat even without a stylus, the screen size and resolution means everything for me
