Samsung is on a roll at the moment. The Galaxy S3, Note, Note 2 and the now the Note X are so well sought-after. The Note X dominates the sizing of smartphones as it has been announced that it’s 6.3”. The 5.5” Note 2 was labelled a ‘phablet’ but now the difference between a tablet PC and a smartphone has been blurred yet again. Many people thought the Note 2 was too large to carry around easily and would be better off in its own case that doubled up as a stand but now that the Note X is bigger again, it seems that there is a market for larger (much larger) smartphones.
Samsung isn’t one to jump into anything too fast and does its market research very well so the general consensus has to be that people are crying out for a larger screen. Unless it is such that the technology needed for smartphones or tablets to be faster, more powerful and have the best cameras and technology means that the case needs to be bigger until smaller, lighter products are made. As we’ve seen with the iPhone 5 and the Motorola RAZR HD thinner, lighter but larger seems to be the way forward for smartphone makers.
Although the Note X isn’t due out just yet it has been leaked that it will come with the inaugural Super AMOLED Plus display and that comes complete with HD screen quality at all times. The Android smartphone will come with the Cortext A15 2GHz processor that is said to be one of the quickest on the market, and will certainly appease those that get frustrated with slowness from their phone. It will have a 3MP front-facing camera, perfect for video calls, and it will have a 16MP rear camera. This level of technology that is crammed into a larger device means that it is so much faster than other phones on the market. It’s on-par with many top laptops, in fact.
There is 3GB RAM, which really sets it apart from others, as it’s all down to RAM that makes the device fast. The quad-core processor means that you can perform multiple tasks and it won’t hang or judder, or make you want to throw it out of the window. The storage options for the Samsung Galaxy Note X will be 32GB, 64GB or 128GB so you can hold pretty much anything and everything on your device. It will be a good idea to back it up with a cloud storage service, though. The 4000mAh battery lets it last for ages without charge and the new stylus S-Pen is superb for making quick changes on the large screen without rubbing your fingerprints off. AGPS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB 3.0 are all available. It will run on the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which isn’t due out for a while.
