Samsung has sold over 7 million to date, and are apparently getting ready to launch a new and improved version later this year. It is expected to have a 5.5 inch screen and an October release date.
The Galaxy Note 2 will start with the features of the Galaxy S3 so it will look similar and feature the same technologies and services like S Beam, S Voice, NFC, SmartStay and others.
It is reported that the Galaxy Note will have slightly larger 5.5-inch display with WSXGA+ (1680×1050) and 360 pixel density. The Galaxy Note 2 will feature Super AMOLED (non-Plus) display from PenTile matrix family because these displays last longer and are more power efficient that true RGB AMOLED Plus displays.
