IFA 2012: The Samsung Galaxy Note II - Samsung's most powerful device to date and its first Android Jelly Bean device

After all the rumors and leaks, finally the Samsung Galaxy Note II is official. Well, what can I say? I have never really liked the Note (except for the Galaxy Note 10.1). Like the Windows Phone 8 powered ATIV S, the Note II also follows the SGS III deign aesthetics. No word yet on pricing but Samsung is preparing to launch the device starting in October in major markets in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. This is an apparent upgrade or the official successor to the Galaxy Note and expect its specs to more beefier. For the record, this is Samsung's most powerful device to date since it sports Sammy's most powerful chipset ever, the Exynos 4412 Quad. To top all the goodies up, this is Samsung's first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device.
