Samsung’s new Android flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note II is about to make its way onto SaskTel’s shelves.The regional carrier has just confirmed it will offer the device to its customers within the next few weeks, though it did not unveil details on the phone’s pricing options yet.
Nevertheless, customers who wish to be among the first to grab the Galaxy Note II can now fill out the form uploaded on SaskTel’s website and get notified when the smartphone arrives in stock.
Although Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available in Canada through most carriers, including TELUS, Bell and Rogers, it’s nice to know that smaller operators such as SaskTel, WIND, Mobilicity and Videotron will offer it as well.
Unveiled back in late August at IFA 2012 trade fair, Samsung Galaxy Note II will be shipped with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system onboard.
One of the most powerful Android smartphones available on the market, the Galaxy Note II is equipped with a quad-core Cortex-A9 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. It also packs a Mali-400MP graphics processing unit and no less than 2GB of RAM.
There will be three versions of Galaxy Note II launched on the market: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Aside from the storage offered by default, users will be able to further extend internal memory up to 64GB via microSD memory card.
The Galaxy Note II is a consistent upgrade from the original model. The phone boasts a slightly larger 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.
Last but not least, Samsung Galaxy Note II is powered by a high-capacity 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 (16 hours in 3G mode).
