Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 2 in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Canada and the US. And coming up, Samsung will be launching the oversized smartphone for those in Australia. The launch event is scheduled for the middle of next month. More specifically, Samsung has the launch event scheduled for November 14.
There is still some speculation in terms of which carriers will be offering the handset. Of course, we suspect those details, along with a release date and hopefully some pricing will be made available on the 14th. Otherwise, AusDroid believes that the Galaxy Note 2 will launch in Australia with support for the 1800MHz band, which means 4G network compatibility for Telsra and Optus.
Aside from the question in network support, the Galaxy Note 2 will bring the 5.5-inch (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, microSD card slot (with support for cards up to 64GB in size), 3100 mAh battery, S Pen and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the TouchWiz user interface.
All said and done, it looks like another market which means additional Galaxy Note 2 sales for Samsung. And for those who may have missed the Galaxy Note 2 sales expectation, back in September Samsung said they were expecting to sell more than 20 million Galaxy Note 2 smartphones.
