Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note II in India and Germany. In India the phone is being priced at ₹39,900 (around $750) whereas in Germany the phone will be sold for €699.
In case you're not aware of this device, the Galaxy Note II is an updated version of last year's Galaxy Note and is basically a stretched Galaxy S III. It has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, up from 5.3-inch on last year's model and comes with the same pressure sensitive S-Pen stylus from the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Other features include a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, 16/32/64GB internal memory with microSD card slot and the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Update: Australia and South Korea also got the Note II today and we expect many other countries (including most of Europe) to join the fun in the following days.
