Ever since Galaxy Note was unveiled to the world, enthusiasts have been wondering whether it will receive a successor, just as many of Samsung’s Android smartphones did.
As it turned out, Samsung was indeed preparing a Galaxy Note II, unveiled last month as the larger and faster phablet from the company.
The 5.5-inch smartphone
is getting ready to arrive on shelves, and it appears that Samsung has already started to take pre-orders in some markets around the world, including India.
On the Samsung India eStore
, one can see the Galaxy Note II listed as available for reservations, and all those who would like to have a unit shipped to them on launch day should go there and hit the pre-book button.
Moreover, users can also register on the website to be notified when the smartphone is ready for launch. However, specific info on the handset’s arrival hasn’t been provided as of yet.
Users who would like to pre-order the new smartphone will have to come up with INR 5,000 ($94 / €72) in advance, which suggests that the final price won’t be a low one at all.

arrives on shelves with a large 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display and packs a fast 1.6 GHz quad-core processor inside.
The smartphone also comes to the market with 16 GB of internal memory, as well as with a microSD memory card slot to allow users to add more storage space to it.
