The Samsung Galaxy Note, the diminutive tablet/smartphone launched by the Korean electronics behemoth at IFA 2011 last week, is set to debut in the UK in the first quarter of next year with the US getting the note later in the year.
Should the information, provided to Slashgear by unnamed Samsung Executives, prove to be indeed true, it will be a rather disappointing scenario given that we're not great fans of paper launches.
Based on Slashgear's intel, we can expect the Galaxy Note's launch to be at least four months from now and probably more given the fact that any product launches will almost certainly happen after MWC next year in Barcelona.
The Galaxy Note is significantly bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S2 with a 5.3-inch screen and a 1290x800 pixel resolution, the same as on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
It also boasts a dual core 1.4GHz SoC; we have asked Samsung Electronics whether it is actually a newer, faster Exynos or a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC but are yet to receive any details from them.
We suspect that by the time the Samsung Galaxy Note is released, it might replace the S2 altogether or the latter may make space for a smaller version of the Note.
