Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note, Successor VS Predecessor
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date is closer than ever and while this mystery Note hasn’t seen many leaks or even rumors we can not help but imagine where it will stand when compared to its predecessor, the original Samsung Galaxy Note.
Since both the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the original Galaxy Note, are from the same Note family you are probably noticing a few minor differences between the body build and the design of these two gigantic phones.
However, the Note 2 is said to be featuring an even larger screen and hence there will definitely be some changes in the dimensions.
As said earlier, the Note 2 is said to be featuring a larger screen than its predecessors and while it is still not confirmed, currently the safest bet is that the Note’s predecessor will come with a 5.5 inch 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720(pixel density~267ppi) which is around 0.2 inches more than what the current Samsung Galaxy Note has to offer from its 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels(pixel density~285 ppi).
It has been quite some time since the Original Note made its debut, time long enough for the technology to change and introduce us to a new line of more powerful quad core processors. So its needless to say that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be featuring a better and more powerful processor than its predecessors.
There is a mix opinion among bloggers about what this yet to be released mystery Note device has under its hood, some say that the Note 2 will be featuring a 2GHz proprietary Exynos 5250 quad-core chip while the others say that it will be coming with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 chipset. Whatever, the case might be, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will definitely be faster than the original note which has a Dual-core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor.
Other Tech Specs
Apart from the tech specs discussed above, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to be having 4G LTE, NFC, 12MP rear camera, 1 or 2GB RAM, at least 16GB of internal memory with more storage options available and the choice of using a microSD card upto 64GB, and of course Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a Jelly Bean update on its way for Q4.
The original Samsung Galaxy Note on the other hand comes with 4G LTE 700(region specific), no NFC, 8MP rear camera, 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage which could be further expanded upto 32GB more through a microSD card and Android v2.3.5 Gingerbread which is upgradable to v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
With Samsung Galaxy Note 2 outdoing the original Note in almost all the categories stated above, do we really need to say anything?
The Note processor is now just a few days away and if you are in need of a phone/tablet then we would definitely recommend you to check the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 out.
