Yesterday, Samsung Mobile USA took the wraps off the upcoming Galaxy Note II in a product demo held in San Francisco. This is an upgrade to the popular Galaxy Note 5.3″ smartphone. The most notable new features are 5.5″ screen, larger battery, and a quad-core processor with a discreet GPU.  A host of new features have been added including updated S Pen apps and a new Air View feature which allows control of the device by hovering the pen over the screen.

Improvements include:

  • Larger battery moving from 2,500 mAh to 3,100 mAh. (A higher amp charger will be included)
  • Move to a 16:9 aspect ratio with a 140.9 mm (5.55″) HD Super AMOLED (1,280 x 720) screen. This change actually means a reduction in overall pixels but those pixels were not used for movies anyway.
  • A range of new cases including a hard shell back plate case with side and front bumpers.
  • Air View optimized apps.
  • Ships with Google Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • Burst mode photography at 6 fps for up to 20 frames.
  • Best Group Pose allows group shot face replacement by taking multiple shots.
  • Larger stylus with detection alarm if your stylus is not returned to the phone.
  • Lots of software improvements, especially those relating to the S Pen.
  • Email with hand-writing  integration is now supported so it’s possible to embed a physical signature to emails.
  • Samsung AllShare Cast (WiFi Display) for mirroring & extension is supported so the phone can share media with other devices such as large screen TVs without the use of wires.
  • Re-positioned power button.
  • Noticeably faster response time across all apps and functions.
  • Improved video player which allows thumbnail views along the timeline and finger gestured controlled zooming.
  • There are also other minor tweaks like a new way to move multiple pictures from one folder to another and a 3D spiral thumbnail view mode for images.
  • Wi-Fi Direct support so large files can be transferred from phone to phone without the existence of a separate router.
  • The global version of the phone supports (no confirmation yet on what the U.S. version will support)
    • 3G: HSPA+21Mbps
      (HSDPA 21Mbps / HSUPA 5.76Mbps)
    • 4G LTE: 100Mbps / 50Mbps
