Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Smartphones are getting bigger and bigger.  Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note handset with a 5.3-inch display.  Yes, you read it right, the WVGA Super AMOLED display measures 5.3 inches and is of the.  This is almost a tablet to me, but considering the applications that look great or functions better on bigger screens, I think a 5.3-inch handset is still reasonable for a handset.   The phone is thin at light, measuring only 0.38 inch thick and a weighing 178 grams.

The Samsung Galaxy Note runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWiz overlay. It is an HSPA+ handset and features two cameras with 8MP and 2MP resolutions.  The processor used is a Samsung-made dual-core 1.4GHz.  The battery is the removable 2,500mAh type.

What makes this handset stand out from the rest of Samsung’s smartphones is the inclusion of a stowaway pen for note-taking, drawing and grabbing screen captures.  The Galaxy Note has a touch-optimized interface called “S Pen” that is perfect for the included pen.

Pricing and availability are still unknown.  Here’s the official intro video for the Galaxy Note.
