Samsung Galaxy Note II

Anxiously awaiting the Samsung Galaxy Note II? The wait is almost over for those in Europe.

Yesterday we learned that the Note II is hitting Italy on September 28th. What about the rest of the European market? An unofficial report coming from Sam Mobile suggests Samsung’s new phablet will start rolling out to Europe within the next two weeks.

Want the exact dates for the launch of Samsung’s new smartphone? We may not know all of the exact dates yet, but here are a few specific release targets:

  • France October 1-2
  • Germany September 27
  • Netherlands October 1-2
  • United Kingdom October 1-2
  • As expected, September 28th in Italy

We now know when it’s coming, but what about pricing? If the source proves correct, you can expect the Note 2 to arrive at a non-subsidized price of about 699 Euros. The actual cost will be much lower for the majority of buyers, thanks to lower pricing with a two-year commitment.

Need a refresher on the specs? The display is a gorgeous 1280 x 720 5.5-inch AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. As for the internal hardware, it is powered by a 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core CPU with 2GB of RAM.  Other specs include 16/32/64GB internal storage options, microSDHC, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 4G LTE, 3,100mAh battery and a redesigned S-Pen. The phone will be available in Titanium Grey or Marble White.
