Many knew that Samsung was going to introduce the Samsung Galaxy Note II during IFA 2012, but not everyone knew the exact specs and features the phablet would contain.  During IFA 2012, Samsung took to the stage and introduced the successor to the original Galaxy Note, which is only slightly bigger but packs multiple hardware upgrades and software features.

The device now boasts a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board, 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear facing camera, 1.9MP front facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, and 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage space.  The Galaxy Note II will be offered in Marble White and Titanium Gray.

Samsung also revamped how the Galaxy Note II would interact with the S Pen including a host of new features such as: Air View, Popup Note, Quick Command, Screen Recorder, Easy Clip, and Idea Visualizer.  The idea among all these new features is to make viewing, saving, and editing media much easier and efficient.

In terms of availability and pricing, the Galaxy Note II will launch in October in Europe, Asia, and Middle East markets.  It is also expected to launch in the United States during 2012.  Pricing will be carrier dependent and announced in the future.
