We have been seeing many a gadget making their presence felt at the IFA trade show atBerlin. Manufacturers seem be busy pushing their latest creations for customer approval and the technology press has been going ecstatic writing about almost all that are unveiled at theBerlinvenue.
The Samsung Galaxy Note stood apart, in styling and specs. From what we hear, the Note recorded impressive figures in the Quadrant standard benchmark. According to the survey done at the IFA trade show, the smartphone attained a score of 3,624 overcoming the Galaxy S II score of 3,538.
No surprise, as the first smartphone with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED touch screen having a resolution of 1280 x 800 has scored this mark.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread device comes with some incredible specs like a powerful 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, dual cameras-an 8-megapixel rear shooter with 1080p video recording and a 2-megapixel front facing snapper for video calling. It also comes with a micro SD card slot,Bluetooth,Wi-Fi, A-GPS, USB 2.0, NFC support and much more.
We cannot just rely on this survey details, as the real-world performance is something to be noted. However, one thing is sure the device will set a mark among the smartphones as it comes with the tablet like features.
Sporting these features, we can expect a decent price for the smartphone. Ahead of theUSand theUK, Samsung has announced the release and pricing of the super phone in the Scandinavian countries likeSweden,Norway,DenmarkandFinland.
It is expected to arrive in the countries on November at a price tag of $ 1060 (750 Euros) without contract with slight changes in each country. The only thing, which matters, is the high price of the device as the iPad 2 is only $ 829.
Samsung fans in the UK can cheer as the smartphone will hit their in the first quarter of next year, but those in the US have to wait.
