Samsung Galaxy Note announced — 5.3-inch 1280×800 285ppi Super AMOLED, S Pen stylus

Samsung wants to make sure they have every screen size in the universe covered, so enter the Samsung Galaxy Note which is a 5.3-inch 1280×800 (WXGA – 285ppi) Super AMOLED super phone.

Like the Galaxy Tab 7.7, it features a 1.4GHz Dual-Core CPU along with 1GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. There’s also stylus input via S Pen to use on that large, yet small, display. The stylus fits nicely into the 9.65mm thick Galaxy Note, which runs Android 2.3.5; has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera; a massive 2500mAh battery; along with two variants: HSPA+ or LTE.

After having used the Dell Streak for a fair amount of time when it was first released, I found the 5-inch screen to be a tad too big, however, if there’s any company that can attempt to pull it off, it’s Samsung; the benefit of the doubt is theirs for now.

My favourite part of the Galaxy Note has to be the screen resolution: 1280×800 (WXGA) which pushes the ppi to 285 — slowly creeping up on the 326ppi of the iPhone 4. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. We’ve heard no rumours of an Australia launch, but we’ll give it some time. No doubt we’ll be seeing more of this in the coming days.

I’ve been wanting to update my current phone and was leaning towards the SGS2, but this has definitely caught my eye (it’s hard not to). From what I’ve read (in other places on the web) people don’t like anything over a 5″ screen, they say it’s too big for a phone. But I must say that I’m really liking the look of this phone – sure it’s going to be bigger than ur average phone, but I browse the internet, read books, watch movies and play games on my current phone (I actually make very few calls), so in my… Read more »

I have fairly large hands and anything smaller than 4″ screen is way to small to even try and use the touch screen, so I am fairly interested and excite about this one, it is highly likely to replace my current desired replacement for my Galaxy S, which was of course the Galaxy S II. Plus the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be the perfect replacement for my current Galaxy Tab (original). Now if we can only get Apple’s patent disputes to go away, then I will be able to have a fantastic trio of Android devices to go with my… Read more »

This could work, the one thing that let the Streak down was the chassis was HUGE man and heavy, I reckon Sammy could make this work ya know!
