No, that isn't a typo in the title - Samsung has indeed just unveiled a 5.3-inch phone, the 'Galaxy Note', at IFA 2011 to join the rest of its growing Galaxy family. The insanely big device doesn't just stop there, though, as Samsung has paired it with one of its Super AMOLED displays at a resolution of 1280 x 800. That happens to be the same resolution as my 13-inch laptop, so you get an idea of just how sharp this thing is, with a pixel density of 285ppi.
The specs are really the most impressive part of this story, so let's get right to them:
- 10.1-inch capacitive 1280x800 display
- "Adaptive Display" technology, aka an ambient light sensor
- 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing
- USB, miniUSB, and HDMI ports
- SD card slot
- 1.7 pounds in weight; 0.6 inches in thickness
Unfortunately, its name is still a mystery - hopefully, this will be resolved at CES.
