After Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone became the best selling device in the world, with about 18 million devices sold in the third quarter of 2012, the Galaxy Note II is also faring well with its sales. The sales for the device has crossed the 5 million mark within the first two months of its launch.
The Galaxy Note II was launched in the Indian market in the month of September, 2012 and it was first unveiled in the IFA 2012, in Berlin in the month of August. The impressive sales figures have shown that despite criticism from some parties regarding the big screen size, potential buyers have not been discouraged.
Some major features of the device include a 5.5 inch screen with AMOLED touch screen having a 1280 x 720 pixel density, 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, 8 mega pixel AF/Touch Focus camera with full HD video recording and playback, along with a front camera that is 1.9 megapixels. The phone-cum-tablet is available in three versions, 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, out of which the 16 and the 32 GB versions can be expanded up to 64 GB.
In India however, customers can only get their hands on the 16 GB version. The device runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform.
