Samsung Galaxy Note 5-inch Smartphone unveiled at IFA 2011
 
 

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note just now at the IFA 2011 in Berlin. The Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch smartphone with touch screen and pen interface. It features the world’s first and the largest 5.3” HD Super AMOLED display, an expansive high-resolution screen that provides an immersive viewing experience. Taking full advantage of the large display, users will be able to do more tasks to create and consume more, with minimum scrolling and screen transitions, while on the go. At the 5.3-inch size the display has a cool 1,280x800px resolution that results in 285ppi. The iPhone 4 has in contrast 326ppi. The HD Super AMOLED has a lower pixel density. 

An advanced pen-input technology, called the S Pen, is combined with the Galaxy Note’s full touch screen to introduce a new type of user-experience. 

The Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 and supports LTE & HSPA+ and Wi-fi connectivity. Other features include 8MP camera, 2MP front camera, 16/32GB storage options and 1.4Ghz CPU. Measurements of the Galaxy Note are 146.85x82.95x9.65mm. 

Samsung did not reveal release date and pricing for the Galaxy Note. Watch two videos below that introduce the Galaxy Note. I am not convinced that these big smartphones have a future.

The IFA 2011 opens on September 2nd in Berlin, Germany. Read all the latest news and highlights in our IFA 2011 Hub.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
