Samsung Electronics Phils Corp (SEPCO) announced that the consumer launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be on October 20. The new Samsung GALAXY Note II enables unique experiences in personalized and expressive content creation; making it the ultimate smartphone for on-the-go creativity.
“Last year at IFA, we launched the GALAXY Note, which opened a new category of smart mobile devices. This year, again at IFA, I am proud to announce the GALAXY Note II, which will encourage users to ‘unleash their inner creativity.’ With a perfect viewing experience and unique and differentiated features, users can discover information and capture their ideas faster, express thoughts freely and manage tasks more efficiently. For anyone who wants to be creative, expressive and unique, the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be the ideal device, allowing users to live a life extraordinary,” said Binggoy Mauricio, SEPCO HHP Business Unit Director.
With the ‘Premium Suite’ upgrade in May, Samsung offered innovative new features such as Shape Match and Formula Match. These provided users with features for organized expression in their personal and professional life. In mid August, Samsung expanded the category with the GALAXY Note 10.1, which has a 10.1 inch large screen, Multiscreen feature for ultimate multitasking, and a more natural S Pen experience with enhanced features for users’ productivity, creativity and learning ability.
Perfect viewing experience – See richer content - all in one view
The GALAXY Note II features a 5.5” (140.9mm) HD Super AMOLED screen, providing breathtaking visuals and crystal clear detail. Its 16:9 screen ratio ensures an immersive and enriched cinema like video viewing experience, perfect for viewing HD videos on-the-go. Its larger screen allows users to see content clearly and vividly, with much enhanced readability.
In addition to the stunning content consumption experiences from the larger screen, users will also be able to accomplish more tasks efficiently and create content freely on-the-go, as the GALAXY Note II comes with a thinner and portable body.
The new S Pen is longer, thicker and ergonomically designed for the perfect grip. Therefore, it provides a more precise, comfortable and natural writing experience. It also has fully integrated features and applications that make everyday tasks more intuitive and easy.
Air View allows users to hover with the S Pen over an email, S Planner, image gallery, or video to preview the content without having to open it. This feature gives users quick access to search and view more information in detail without screen transitions.
The S Pen’s advanced features also provide enhanced capabilities to capture ideas and inspirations instantly and to combine handwriting with any digital content directly on the screen. By simply pressing the dedicated S Pen button, the S Pen magically recognizes that users want to clip or edit the selected content on the screen.
The Easy Clip feature, allows users to instantly outline and crop any content on the screen in any shape to save, share or paste. Once done cropping the image, users can freely edit the cropped content through coloring, shading, or their own personal handwriting. It is quick and easy.
Popup Note lets users open an S Note instantly as a pop-up window anywhere on the screen. When a user pulls out the S Pen during a phone call or double taps the screen while holding the S Pen button, the S Note application automatically pops up on the screen, allowing users to jot down a quick personal message. Users can also personalize photos by leaving handwritten memos on the backside of a photo using the S Pen.
In addition, the device’s new gesture pad feature, called Quick Command, lets users quickly activate frequently used apps with the S Pen. The command pad appears when a user just swipes upward on the screen with the S Pen button pressed. Users can quickly send an email, make a call, or search a location as they draw pre-registered marks on the command pad or register a unique mark to allow for quick and easy access.
For a true PC-like multi-tasking, users can launch multiple windows on one screen. Users don’t need to close applications to launch new ones. When users are completing a task in one application, they can immediately load another application on the screen.
Multiple applications are stacked on the screen like multiple windows and users can easily switch among applications. It lets them flip from task to task very quickly, but it doesn’t clutter up the rest of the display, providing users with quick and easy multitasking.
