TheVerge – Samsung officially released the Galaxy Note II. It is thinner and lighter than the first Note. The new Note device comes with a redesigned S Pen stylus, a bevy of new software features layered atop Android 4.1, and an enlarged 5.5-inch display. It has an 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor.
The physical design and materials, however, are a direct match to Samsung’s Galaxy S III, which launched earlier this year. The Note II even uses the same 8-megapixel camera. The software interface looks identical to the GS III’s, but for the S Pen-specific “Magic Wand” sub-homescreen and a selection of other stylus enhancements. NFC, a choice of two colors (Mountain White and Titanium Gray), and three storage options (16GB, 32GB, or 64GB) are other similarities to Samsung’s flagship smartphone. 2GB of RAM will come standard on the Galaxy Note II.
It has a high 3100mAh capacity battery.
Samsung Galaxy Camera
Samsung merged a good camera with an android phone in the Galaxy Camera. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 4.8-inch HD LCD display. There is a 16-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor within what is otherwise an unmistakably camera-shaped body, equipped with a retractable lens that provides 21x optical zoom.
Samsung also introduced some Windows 8 laptops and tablets.
