We just learned that the original Galaxy Note has been sold to 7,000,000 customers. Now we are learning more about what the Galaxy Note 2 might look like and some of its specs. The next Galaxy Note might be pushing the boundaries of screen size even further with a rumored 5.5 inch display. The original Galaxy Note has a 5.3 inch screen.
The screen is getting bigger in more way than just physical size. The original Galaxy Note has a 1280 x 800 resolution, but the new Note 2 is rumored to pack in 1680 × 1050 pixels. This is a huge boost in ppi (pixels per inch). The original has 285 ppi and the Galaxy Note 2 is said to have 360 ppi. That is a step up from the iPhone 4S’s 325 ppi. The screen on the Galaxy Note 2 will feature the same PenTile Super AMOLED technology as the previous. Many people loath PenTile matrix displays, but there is not much of an issue with that pixel arrangement with high ppi displays.
The Galaxy Note 2 supposedly has taken a lot of design cues from the Galaxy S III’s bland design. I actually like the design of the Galaxy S III, but many people hate it. Software features from the Galaxy S III will be ported to the Galaxy Note 2 as well.
The RAM will see a 512 MB bump to 1.5 GB. The camera will be 8 MP and the international version will come standard with 4G LTE.
The one surprising part of this rumor is the dual-core processor. The Galaxy S III runs on an Exynos 4412 quad-core processor, but the report indicates an Exynos 5250 dual-core processor. Does the higher number mean better performance? I guess we will have to wait and see.
Are you excited about the chance of seeing a new Galaxy Note this October?
