Samsung Galaxy Note 2 UK Launch

Wondering when you can get your hands on the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Well, if you’re in the US, you’ll have to wait for about a month more as the sexy new phablet from Samsung is scheduled to be launched on October 24th. But if you happen to be in the UK, you can waltz over to the Samsung flagship store in London tomorrow, September 30th, to avail of the Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 UK Launch

TechRadar reveals that UK fans of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 are in luck because they have the opportunity to get the device ahead of everyone else:

“The palm-defying Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be available a day early from the company’s flagship store in London this Sunday, September 30.

“The 5.5-inch, stylus-equipped smartphone / tablet hybrid doesn’t go on sale across the rest of the UK until October 1, but visitors to the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre will get early bragging rights.”

Samsung is also supposedly promising an “exclusive sales price” to Samsung Galaxy Note 2 fans heading out to the store on Sunday. Nothing has been made official as to what kind of pricing or discount should people expect but non-contract pricing for the Galaxy Note 2 is currently pegged at around £546, according to earlier reports.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the successor of Samsung’s highly successful Galaxy Note. The device receives several impressive upgrades such as a larger 5.5 inch display, a 1.6 GHa quad-core Exynos processor, 2 GB of RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. It also comes with an improved S-Pen stylus and apps that are designed to make full use of its features.

  1. I was at the store today. There was a bit of a queue outside, nothing like Apple proportions (luckily!). Unfortunately the people working at the store were ill equiped to deal with the situation as there was very little information on the deals available. I had to personally stay in line for 2 hours, after which we were told to go to the phones4u store to purchase the phone on contract. This seemed the only sensible option, as the sim free phone was sold for £569.99, hardly an exclusive price! The contract deal was not available on O2, the phone was only available in the white (although the titanium grey was on display in store) 16GB variant without LTE. The deal was to get the phone free on a 24 month contract for £36/month (with various text, call and data plans depending on networks). I was very dissapointed and walked away empty handed, as did quite a few other punters. Next time, I hope Samsung underpromises and overdelivers rather than the other way around. I’ll wait for the 32/64GB titanium grey version before springing for this, and will probably get it from an online retailer like Clove who seems to beat the Samsung store’s “exclusive pricing”. At least we got some Jelly Beans and a Note II cupcake out of the deal!
