Samsung in India has announced the launch of its latest innovation – the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone, which comes with a plethora of features that spill over to tablet type functionality as well. Targeted at people who need to do more with their smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note offers the muscle of a smartphone in a form factor that is almost similar to that of a tablet.
The Galaxy Note is the first device to sport a 5.3 inch HD Super Amoled display. The display sports a native resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels and supports multi-touch and also comes with the S (Smart) Pen stylus that allows the users to go creative with all their might. The Galaxy Note runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread along with a fully worked upon Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface.
For powering this massive device, Samsung has chosen a dual-core 1.4 GHz Exynos microprocessor with Mali-400 MP dedicated graphics processor. The Galaxy Note also features a 1 GB RAM along with 16 GB memory onboard as storage memory. Its 8 megapixel camera comes with LED flash capable of recording 1080p full HD videos at 30 fps. There is a front facing 2 megapixel camera as well that can provide self-portrait shots and video calling.
The device was originally scheduled for a launch in the month of September itself but due to many reasons the launch of the device got delayed. But as the Samsung spokesperson has told sometime back about the launch of the Galaxy Note, the device is launched exactly on time as communicated back then.
The device is quite powerful as far as the specifications go but in terms of the price, it might be a downer for many buyers. The Samsung Galaxy Note has been priced at Rs 34,990 and this is the best price at which the device will be selling in the Indian market through Samsung stores and Samsung franchisee network for upcoming few weeks.
At present there are no network service providers tie ups given for this device but Samsung is in talks with a couple of service providers for a special tariff for the same and is expected to be announcing a few in the coming days.
