Samsung has announced the much awaited Galaxy Note II at IFA in Berlin.

The superphone is equipped with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and runs on Android 4.1 jelly Bean. It is also 4G LTE capable to deliver a faster browsing experience and minimal app load time. The device also has an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 1.9MP front-facing camera. Both cameras are capable of high quality HD recording.

The Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with a 16:9 viewing ratio, making it ideal to enjoy HD quality movies on-the-go. The device also features a new and improved S-Pen stylus which is longer, thicker and ergonomically designed for the perfect grip. Samsung says this provides for a more precise, comfortable and natural writing and drawing experience.

"Last year at IFA, we launched the GALAXY Note, which opened a new category of smart mobile devices. This year, again at IFA, I am proud to announce the GALAXY Note II, which will encourage users to 'unleash their inner creativity.' With a perfect viewing experience and unique and differentiated features, users can discover information and capture their ideas faster, express thoughts freely and manage tasks more efficiently. For anyone who wants to be creative, expressive and unique, the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be the ideal device, allowing users to live a life extraordinary," said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

The Galaxy Note II will be available in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, and is equipped with an expandable micro SD memory slot for added storage needs.
