THE NEW SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 2 ARRIVES IN EUROPE IN OCTOBER AND THE U.S. NEAR THE END OF THE YEAR!

Samsung’s got a handful of announcements to offer its mobile fans at IFA this year, and it’s started big: with the Galaxy Note II.

The new Android device packs a larger 5.5-inch, 1,280 x 720 16:9 screen, but still falls roughly within the same generous footprint of its predecessor.

A year on, we’ve now got a more powerful SoC, up from a dual-core 1.4GHz processor to a new quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos chipset (yes, that’s even faster than the one found in the Galaxy S III) and Android Jelly Bean right out of the box.

Samsung’s putting a lot of focus on making the most of all that screen space and S Pen functionality.

We got our hands (both of them) on the Galaxy Note II just a few hours early, so after the gallery, skip past the break for our first impressions.
