Samsung announces arrival date of the large 5-inch screen Galaxy Note mobile phone

South Korean electronics giant Samsung has made public its Android Galaxy Note handset will be available to buy in mid-November, with a reported cost of £600.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note was launched a Berlins IFA consumer electronics show in early September this year, as the fastest handset from the company and with the biggest screen on a device that bridges the gap between a tablet and a mobile phone.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note arrives with a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera and a 2MP front-facing version, with 16GB of internal storage, HSPA+ connectivity and the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS.

Accompanying the device is a pen-input system called the ‘S Pen’, where coupled with the full touch screen mean owners of the Galaxy Note can easily create content whilst on the go and with minimum scrolling and screen transitions.

Samsung has stated the Galaxy Note will be available in the UK across all the major mobile phone networks, key high-street and out of town electrical retailers along with being purchasable online.
