The LTE version of Samsung Galaxy Note II was unveiled back in August at IFA 2012 trade fair, but the South Korean company failed to offer an exact release date for the smartphone.
Although we still don’t have a launch date yet, the Galaxy Note II LTE
has just been listed at Australian retailer Mobicity.
Customers can pre-order the smartphone for no less than $830 AUD (850 USD or 655 EUR) outright, though the retailer does not unveil any details on Galaxy Note II LTE’s availability. Check it out here
Even though Mobicity is the first Australian retailer to offer the Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE, we expect more authorized resellers to carry the device as well.
Unlike the original Samsung Galaxy Note II, this one offers LTE support and is fully compatible with Australia’s 4G network.
Aside from that there aren’t any hardware differences between the two models, so expect Mobicity’s Galaxy Note II LTE to be shipped with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and a powerful 1.6 GHz quad-core processor.
In addition, the smartphone comes equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD memory card.
Another strong point of Samsung’s superphone is the stunning 5.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2
coating for extra protection.
There’s also an enhanced 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE packs a huge 3100 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 980 hours of standby time or up to 35 hours of talk time. Via
