As predicted, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has already clocked up some very impressive sales figures in the UK since it was launched a couple of weeks ago. Popularity of the device on a global scale looks set to skyrocket in the near future, after the launch date for the U.S has been confirmed.
Samsung has recently sent out invitations to a press event to take place on the 24th of October in New York. At the event, Samsung will outline its plans to distribute the handset across the US, which is arguably the biggest consumer technology market in the world. This event follows the recent confirmation of which US carriers will be offering the handset. The latest Samsung Galaxy Note 2 News can be found on our website.
It looks likely that the handset will hit stores in America on the 15th of November. This is because this is the date displayed on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 screen on the invitation to the press event.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has already proven to be an extremely popular handset since its launch around four months ago in the US. The device has already smashed previous sales records for the South Korean manufacturer, selling over 20 million units in its first hundred days on the market. It appears that Samsung has similarly high hopes for the Galaxy Note 2. Samsung has forecast sales of 20 million units of the Galaxy Note 2, according to head of communications at Samsung Mobile, JK Shin.
The success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also looks assured when we consider that the original Galaxy Note has so far sold over 12 million units, despite the fact that many people doubted that its large screen format would prove popular before its launch.
Of course, the impressive spec list of the device will also contribute to its popularity. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 packs a huge touchscreen and advanced stylus pen functionality along with an 8 megapixel camera and the latest Android Jellybean software. Furthermore, the handset will also be compatible with 4G networks, without the need for a specific LTE version.
In the UK, a number of networks are offering Titanium Grey and Marble White Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Deals which are proving very popular, as well as SIM free and pay as you go options also available.
