Samsung Galaxy Note 2 available for UK pre-orders

The gigantic Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ‘phablet’ is now available for UK fans to pre-order through the Mobiles Unlocked website.

With a 5.5-inch screen, 1.6Ghz quad-core processor and smart stylus, the Galaxy Note 2 promises to be one of 2012’s hottest smartphones. Chuck in Android Jelly Bean and you’re looking at a device which is bound to have plenty of phone fanatics reaching for it rather than the forthcoming iPhone 5.

The device is available to buy SIM-free for the almighty price of £544 for the 16GB model, with delivery expected in mid-October.

The successor to the original Galaxy Note, which proved much more of a success than many of us in-the-knows ever expected, was announced at IFA 2012 last week.

It features a 1.6GHz 4+1 processor, 1280×720 Super AMOLED display, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is slightly thinner than its predecessor at 9.4mm.

Going hands-on

The device also features the trademark S-Pen stylus, an 8-megapixel camera, NFC connectivity and the S-Beam sharing tech.

It’ll arrive in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB flavours and a MicroSD card slot for expanded storage.
