Samsung is one of the most prolific smartphone manufacturers in the world, and has numerous handset models of its roster. Of course, the Galaxy S3 is its flagship smartphone and is one of the most popular handsets currently on the market. However, Samsung is soon to release its latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 2.
The original Samsung Galaxy Note proved to be a massive hit, far exceeding expectations. Many people questioned the popularity of its large screen format, but today the handset has sold over 12 million units and counting. The Galaxy Note 2 will of course build on this format, but brings plenty of updated features to the table.
The Galaxy Note 2 was launched in South Korea on Wednesday, and Samsung Mobile, according to Computer World has sent out press invitations for a product launch in New York, 24th October. It is widely assumed that this is for the U.S. version of the Galaxy Note 2, but the invitation has no actual details about the product itself.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is set to be rolled out across 260 networks in 128 countries according to Samsung. It is likely that the Galaxy Note 2 will appear in the United Kingdom at some point next month, and the U.S. shortly after, as this would follow the pattern of the release of the original Galaxy Note.
The spec list of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looks very impressive, even by the standards of many recently released smartphones. The handset will of course include a large touchscreen, and this measures 5.5 inches and of course will also come with the Galaxy Note’s trademark stylus pen. The latest versions of Android and Samsung TouchWiz will of course also be included, but its processor is the real star of the show. With a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, this makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 the most powerful smartphone the market, even surpassing the likes of Samsung’s current flagship the Samsung Galaxy S3, and even the iPhone 5.
Head of Samsung Mobile JK Shin has said he predicts the handset will be capable of moving 20 million units. Because the original Galaxy Note has far surpassed expectations and proved that the large screen format works, this figure would come as no surprise if realized.
