Samsung unveiled the sequel to Galaxy Note last week and promised the smartphone will be made available for purchase within the next couple of weeks.
Powered by Google's latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the Galaxy Note 2 is equipped with a quad core Exynos 4412 Quad processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, a Mali-400MP graphics processing unit and 2GB of RAM.
Unlike the latest high-end Android smartphones launched on the market, which come with microSIM support, the Galaxy Note 2
accepts normal SIM cards.
However, it appears that the South Korean handset maker has something else in mind for Chinese customers.
The folks over at MyDrivers
got their hands on a Chinese-bounded Galaxy Note 2 model, which seems to offer dual-SIM capability.
Moreover, the Chinese Galaxy Note 2 accepts both normal SIM cards and microSIM cards, so customers will be able to replace their high-end devices without having to change their SIM with a normal one.
We also know the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 2 is headed to China Unicom, though the other two major carriers in the country, China Telecom and China Mobile might be getting this one as well.
Although the information has yet to be confirmed we expect Samsung to launch multiple variants of Galaxy Note 2 in China, so stay tuned for more updates on this one.
When it comes to specs, the Chinese Galaxy Note 2 does not seem to offer other features than the original model announced last week at IFA 2012 in Berlin, aside from the dual-SIM capability.
It will boast the same 5.5-inch Super AMOLED
capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.
Obviously, the Galaxy Note 2 comes with the famous S-Pen stylus, which now features enhanced apps and services.
