Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release might initiate major turf wars among the South Korean manufacturer and Apple. Galaxy Note 2 was released with a bold prediction from Samsung’s Head of Mobile Communications J.K. Shin, stating that Note 2 will sell three times as many units as the original Galaxy Note in the first three months.
Galaxy Note sold one million units in the first three months after the release. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 price is placed at £528 for a 16GB device according to the UK online retail store, Clove. Samsung expects Galaxy Note 2 to expand its reach over 260 carriers in 1208 markets and release in the US on five of the major carriers in November.
Samsung UK executive, Simon Stanford said, “The introduction of the original Galaxy Note was a great success – we succeeded in creating an entirely new category. With the Galaxy Note 2, we’re not only expanding the category, we’re also evolving the technology to the point where it genuinely feels as though you’re using a traditional pen and paper.”
The Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5–inch screen, 1.6GHz quad-core processor and is lighter and thinner than its predecessor. It operates the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Jelly Bean and comes with an updated version of the S-Pen, the Galaxy Note’s unique stylus. The phone/tablet will also include 4G LTE service, the latest in network technology and an 8 megapixel camera.
Galaxy Note 2 will start selling in the UK from October 1 in marble white or titanium grey colour, with stiff competition from iPhone 5 which has already sold 5 million devices.
