Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy Note 2 phablet at a Samsung Mobile Unpacked event on August 29 in Berlin. The smartphone is heavily anticipated in the United States, but it looks like stateside consumers will have to wait the longest. Those in the United Kingdom, however, can begin pre-ordering the phone from outlets like Clove Technology and Mobicity.

Clove Technology and Mobicity both offer the 16GB versions in both Marble White and Titanium Gray for around $868. Release dates given specify a mid-October launch.
"Available in Marble White or Titanium Gray color options, the Samsung GALAXY Note II is set to launch in October starting in major European, Asian, and Middle East markets," reads the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 press release.
The United States should be seeing the Galaxy Note 2 by the end of 2012.
Samsung has not released any information regarding an exact release date, pricing, or carrier options in the United States.
However, we can assume that the Galaxy Note 2 should be available through AT&T upon the U.S. launch since the carrier exclusively carried the original Galaxy Note for a while. Leaked images on the internet have also shown that there may also be a T-Mobile version. There is nothing to indicate that Verizon or Sprint will offer the Galaxy Note 2.
The Galaxy Note 2 will come with a huge 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen running at 1280X720. It will also feature a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the S Pen stylus. It will also allow users to multitask more efficiently.
Samsung is placing a heavy emphasis on the Galaxy Note 2's new and improved S Pen and its creative abilities. The S Pen has been redesigned to be more ergonomic and will, Samsung hopes, turn the Galaxy Note 2 into a digital notepad.
