The Samsung Galaxy Note is not only one of the most innovative Android devices ever, it’s also one of the most successful too. Samsung realized it found a winning formula and may have plans for its successor to be released later in the year. According to the International Business Times, the Galaxy Note follow-up is poised to be bigger and better than the first… literally.
The first Samsung Galaxy Note featured a display of 5.3-inches, which many considered half phone half tablet (or phablet). Then came an actual tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1, sported a 10.1-inch display. Of course more recently the original Note was upgraded to the Galaxy Note II with a slightly bigger display, at 5.5-inches. There has to be a 7-inch tablet in the works right?
It has been widely rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will feature a 5.9-inch display, but the latest word is that it will only have a 5.7-incher. I guess this really isn’t surprising since the original Note had a 5.3-inch display and the Note II had a 5.5-incher. If you’re doing the math, that’s an upgrade of 0.2-inches.
Well folks, the wait for the next big phablet is over. Samsung has officially taken the wraps off of its latest Galaxy Note 3, complete with updated hardware and a handful of new features. The biggest difference it the screen; Samsung successfully managed to fit a bigger screen into the body of the phone without adding much extra bulk.
When it came to phones for 2011, the two hottest phones in terms of buzz had to be the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note. Interestingly enough, both phones are made by Samsung. The buzz for the Galaxy Nexus was surrounded around Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich whereas the Galaxy Note was all about it’s mammoth 5.3-inch display and stylus, dubbed the S Pen.
