Samsung has followed up on the success of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note with an even bigger Galaxy Note II — a 5.5-inch brute of a phablet running Jelly Bean that promises to be fully compatible with the pressure sensitive S-Pen.
The Galaxy Note II is powered by Samsung's 1.6GHz quad-core chipset, 2GB of RAM and up to 64 gigabytes of storage. It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera, along with 4G LTE, NFC and the usual wireless technologies, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Throw in a huge 3100mAh battery (the Galaxy Note had one that was 2500mAh), and you've got yourself a very powerful, very large phone tablet thing. [Samsung]
