Samsung Galaxy Note, the largest Android-powered mobile phone unveiled to the world to date, is expected to become available for purchase in the UK sometime in mid-November, and some more info on its release date and pricing has just emerged.
The new device should become available for purchase in the country starting with November 17th,
and is expected to feature a price tag of £670 (around $1 047 / 768 Euros) when released.
The new details come from online retailer Clove, who says that the launch date and the pricing of this device might change, but that these are the closest estimates to what will be announced on the device.
However, this is not an exact price for the smartphone, but only an estimation, the retailer also explains.
“We would like to stress that this price is still subject to change, but it is the most accurate price to date of the final sale price,” Clove notes.
“Secondly, we do now have an expected release date of the 17th of November. This too is subject to change, but previously we expected it late November, therefore good news that it is coming sooner than expected.”
One way or the other, it seems that the new mobile phone
will indeed be very expensive. Of course, when learning of its size and capabilities, we all expected that something like this might happen, and now all has started to be confirmed.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the smartphone packs a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED Display, and that it is powered by a dual-core application processor, with each core clocked in at 1.4GHz.
The mobile phone also sports 16GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot for expanding it, and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & Quad-Band 3G connectivity capabilities.
The Samsung Galaxy Note runs under the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Those who would like to learn some more info on the handset should have a look at our hands-on
with it at the IFA 2011 show in Berlin.
