5.3″ Samsung Galaxy Note revealed!

Looks like Samsung is on a roll at IFA. They just announced a 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz processor.

Maybe this is Samsung’s way of telling Dell this is how you make a big-ass smartphone with an identity crisis.

Samsung Galaxy Note i9220 specs:
5.3-inch Super AMOLED display @ 1280×800 resolution
Gorilla Glass display
1.4GHz dual-core processor Exynos chip
Mali-400MP GPU
up to 32GB via microSD (2GB included)
HSPA+ 21Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0
8MP rear camera
1080p full HD video recording
2MP front-facing camera
GPS w/ aGPS support
FM radio tuner
Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
Samsung TouchWiz UI 4.0

It’s not as thin as the Galaxy S2 but we’ll take anything under 10mm and call it slim and sexy. Storage is expected to be a choice between 16GB and 32GB.

It also comes with an S Pen Stylus so the idea of a smartphone-cum-tablet lives on.

The Galaxy Note also boasts of a packed 2500mAh battery. Samsung also announced a 7.7-inch tablet along with it.

    and how much?

  6. Mai says:

    Any news on the battery life? I’m concerned that bigger screen = shorter battery. My SGS II only lasts a day, perhaps a day and a half without going online often.

      its normal for an android device.. yung mga android phone ko talagang 1 day lang with normal use..

      yung iphone 4 ko, 3-4 days with normal use, kaya mas ginagamit ko to since nafufulfill nyo trabaho nya as a phone.. hehe

      halatang may problema ang android pag dating sa battery.. anyway, cant wait for galaxy tab 7.7!!! sana mura lang. =) woohoo!

    • Lyndon says:

      The battery is bigger than that of SGS2. Battery life is quite good. Although, ang bagal i-charge, 4 hours to a full charge.. :( May widget naman na available, so that you can turn off several power draining features at will like bluetooth, wifi, GPS, and sync.

    how much kaya ito..

  8. John says:

    i been waiting for months for a 7″ tablet with good resolution.. tapos yung sobrang nipis with phone capabilities..

    at sa wakas, sinagot ako ng samsung.


    • Jim says:

      Yeah, the galaxy tab 7.7″ has a resolution of 196 ppi, while the 5.3″ galaxy note has 285 ppi – very close to the retina display of the iPhone.. and it has Super AMOLED. Whew! Drool-worthy indeed..

  9. fr0stbyte says:

    This would be more suitable for enterprise use.. They just have to fix the usability of the stylus.. Engadget says it’s too slippery for optimal use.

  10. janjenjin says:

    You happen to know when is this coming out in the Philippines?

  11. razorous says:

    Grabe bilis…Expect Samsung Galaxy Note II coming Q1 2012

  12. terra says:

    too big for a phone and too small for a pad.

  13. MCast says:

    2500 mAh battery?! Might just get me back on the Android ship with this one! One of the reasons why I gave up on Android (and sold my phone) was because of DISMAL DISMAL battery life… Hopefully this one has at least BEARABLE battery life!

  14. Troll says:

    Haha, 5.3″ wow this is starting to become ridiculous

  15. Krave says:

    awww..kakabili ko lang ng Samsung galaxy S wifi…well..this will go as soon as this comes out..passing this 5″ to my brother…

  16. camille says:

  17. macy says:

    i want to trade in my samsung tab with this? do you know a store where i can trade in?

  18. Jay Jay says:

    It’s either this one or the 7.7tab.. :)

  19. meme says:

    this phone would be perfect if only samsung use super amoled plus and not the pentile matrix super amoled use in my nexus S which makes the text not sharp.

  20. Mike says:

    Still iphone drought!!! Samsung will surpass Nokia in overall cellphone sales and will overtake Apple in smartphone soon. So, Samsung will take over the world. lol

  21. vince says:

    mahal ko na ang Samsung dahil dito.

  22. Katie Thomas says:

    Looks like this could be a happy medium between the mobile and the tablet. . . lets call it a MOTAB!!.
    Also a stylus is a handy feature along side the capture and drawing features, a lot of industries will embrace this,
    especially for those chubby fingered people out there. (you try drawing professionally with your finger!!)

  23. parenghilton says:

    wow super cool.. gusto ng ganyan.. not too big, not too small..

  24. jcruze says:

    wala ba hdmi port para direct na maview video sa lcdtv?

  25. alain says:

    gaano kaya ka-accurate ang stylus pen nito? Baka pwde magamit sa pg drawing.

    saka anlaki ng screen! mas masaya mglaro ng board game dito like sungka. hehe

  26. andeng says:
