Samsung Galaxy Note launching in the UK on November 17

Samsung UK has just sent out a surprisingly specific launch date for its new Samsung Galaxy Note, telling us the enormous 5.3″ Android phone/tablet hybrid will arrive in the UK on November 17th.

In case you can’t remember what the fuss was about, the Galaxy Note features a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, runs Android 2.3 at an incredible 1280×800 resolution, with an 8megapixel camera and secondary 2mp front sensor. And it comes with a stylus. And is HUGE.

Manages 1080p recording, too. It is quite THE BEAST. Here’s the full thing about the UK launch, which also clears up the mystery about the Note’s battery – it comes with an equally massive 2500mAh capacity power cell.

UK LAUNCH DATE ANNOUNCED FOR SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE

New Android mobile device to hit UK shops in Mid-November

3rd October 2011, London, UK – Following the recent global launch at IFA, Samsung has today announced that the latest device to join its Galaxy range, the Galaxy Note, will be available in the UK on 17th November 2011.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’re delighted with the overwhelming reception the Galaxy Note has received since it was announced earlier this month and are looking forward to offering Samsung customers a whole new smartphone experience. The Galaxy Note is a great example of Samsung’s passion for innovation by bringing to market a brand new category of mobile products. It is our fastest handset to date and brings together all the benefits of our award-winning smartphone technology and services.”

The Galaxy Note combines the benefits of a notebook with the portability of a smartphone. Thanks to its 5.3” HD Super AMOLED screen, the largest, highest quality display available in any phone, consumers can view movies, photos, and documents, as well as play games on the device with crystal-clear clarity.

Not only that, an advanced pen-input technology called the S Pen and a full touch screen mean owners of the Galaxy Note can easily create and consume more content whilst on the go, with minimum scrolling and screen transitions. With a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy Note is Samsung’s fastest handset to date, combined with HSPA+ enabled super-fast connection means there’s immediate access to content and increased download speeds for streaming videos in real-time or chatting with friends online.

The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in the UK across major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online.

    Do we know the price yet? It’s quite kooky, and I like kooky! And the specs are good enough to at least think about it; if you don’t have a tablet and are contemplating a new phone at the same time, it could be an interesting alternative!

      Price is £600 incl. VAT from Clove. Sorry, but that’s crazy money! I could get 2 iPhones, 2 HTC’s or 2 any other brand for that price. It’s way too big for a phone and too small for a tablet. Can you imagine placing that against your ear to speak to someone? I can’t see who would seriously buy one.

    Dell’s Dom Joly-esque 5″ Streak was a bit of a flop. I can’t see this monstrosity fairing much better. Gentlemen will certainly need to get man-bagged up to cart this around.

  5. I’d love one, but not at that price.
    A proper mansized device :D
    after using my dell streak I have no intention of going back to toyphone sized devices.
    be nice to get one to do some developing for.
    wonder if any of networks will pick it up ?
