One of the Android-based devices that Japanese wireless carrier NTT DOCOMO has announced for this winter is the Galaxy Note II SC-02E, which is now said to arrive on shelves on November 16.
Moreover, the wireless services provider is expected to make the smartphone available for pre-order as soon as November 9, which is this week.
Just last week, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung announced that it had managed to sell over 3 million Galaxy Note II units in the first month of availability.
The smartphone comes with a large 5.5-inch SuperAMOLED HD display that brought it the name of phablet, since it is larger than other high-end smartphones available today, but smaller than tablet PCs.
At the same time, the device comes with features that fit both phones and tablets, thus being capable of providing users with extra features in a single package.
One of these is the Multi-View function, which enables users to divide the screen in two and bring two applications to the front at the same time.
The smartphone also comes with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor packed inside, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording.
Galaxy Note II sports a 1.9MP front camera for video chatting, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 1Seg TV support, NFC, microSD memory card slot to expand the available internal memory, and a 3100mAh battery inside.
The large handset arrives on shelves with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top right from the start, as well as with a variety of features and apps coming from Samsung themselves and meant to offer increased usability of the included S Pen.
