The legal battle against Apple might have brought a lot of negative attention to Samsung recently, but if one thing can turn it around- its the Galaxy Note 2. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a massive screen and a design that is truly innovative, something that Samsung should have been doing with all there products from the beginning.

So what kind of power has made its way into the newest version of the Galaxy Note? Here’s a rundown of the specs:

  • 2GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD1280 x 720 display
  • Size: 80 x 151.1 x 9.4mm thin
  • Weight: 180 grams
  • 16/32/64GB on-board memory
  • microSDHC support of up to 64GB of additional storage
  • 2-megapixel front cam
  • 8-megapixel rear cam
  • HSPA+ support
  • 4G LTE connectivity (in selected markets)
  • Bluetooth 4.0

  • USB 2.0 support
  • A-GPS and Glonass support
  • 3,100mAh removable battery

Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of Samsung, it’s hard not to be impressed by the specs in this thing- certainly blows away the year-old iPhone 4S. Who knows how it will compare to the new iPhone, though.

The only really major ‘downside’ for some folks will be the display. The resolution and aspect ratio have both changed, and not necessarily for the better.
