The Galaxy Note is the Galaxy Q we heard about in July. It is a 5.3 inch Super AMOLED phone/tablet hybrid, much like the Dell Streak before it. Unlike the Dell Streak, it has a screen resolution meant for tablets (1280 x 800). That brings the pixel density to a whopping 285 pixels.
Currently the device does tend to lag slightly despite the 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU found inside it. The Note also has a GB of RAM to compliment it. As for storage you can find 32 GB of internal storage plus microSD up to 32 GB.
One of the factors that sets the phone apart is the S Pen stylus coupled with it. It is a magnetic, pressure sensitive pen that will work on the Galaxy Note’s capacitive screen. There will be a few productivity apps launching on the devices that take advantage of the pen input. Also Samsung will release an SDK in hopes that more developers will include support for the S Pen in their apps.
There will be two variants available depending on the network. One will sport HSPA+ and the other will pack LTE.
No precise release date or pricing, but Samsung did say that it would be available in the “next coming months.”
