Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. took the battle for smartphone with the largest screen to new dimensions today. The company claims its forthcoming Galaxy Note sports the largest screen size with smartphone portability in the market at 5.3 inches.
The device also debuts a new advanced pen-input technology called the S Pen.
“The Galaxy Note is a device borne of our insight and innovation. We examined the fundamental elements of mobile culture, entertainment and communication in order to bring together the best experiences in a single, elegant device,” said JK Shin, president and head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business. “The huge, 5.3 inch HD Super AMOLED screen is the largest, highest quality display available in any phone; the touch screen and S Pen combine to produce a uniquely accurate level of control and finesse, along with rich expressions across the Galaxy Note experience, enabling the introduction of new smartphone experiences.”
The device is 9.65 millimeters thick, powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor running Android 2.3 with HSPA+ and LTE connectivity.
