Samsung’s 5.5-inch smartphone will debut in the UK on Monday.
Arriving in the UK a day earlier than expected, the Galaxy Note 2 will be available from Samsung’s flagship store at London’s Westfield shopping centre, Stratford, as well as all major UK mobile operators.
"We were delighted by the hugely positive response we received when we first announced the Galaxy Note II at IFA back in August," said Simon Stanford, VP of Samsung UK.
"The Galaxy Note II is a whole new level of innovation and we are confident users are going to enjoy the updated features and design of our latest Galaxy device when it hits the shelves on the 1st of October."
The new device has a huge 5.5-inch screen with Super AMOLED HD display sporting a 1280×720 pixel resolution. Running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note 2 features a 1.6Ghz quad core Exynos processor with 2GB of RAM.
Shipping with Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, the smartphone has a rear-facing 8mp camera and a 2mp front-facing camera. It also has the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, MicroUSB and GPS. The device comes in either Marble White or Titanium Grey.
Although Samsung has not yet officially announced pricing, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to cost around £30-£40 per month on contract and around £500 SIM free.
