Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera Uncovered
So, yesterday Samsung finally revealed the next-gen Galaxy Note II; oh wait, we also have the phone camera on the radar. So, yesterday, there are two things on board: Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Camera. So, what are they? Hit the break to find more ;)
Galaxy Note II

The next generation phablet seems to get quite a huge improvement from the last generation. The Note II is redesigned to look similarly to the Galaxy SIII, with rounded edges and a smaller home button. Other than that, yeah, we got a bump in the screen size, the processor, the RAM, and Jelly Bean. The S-Pen is also said to be redesigned, featuring a textured button, a rubber tip, and a thicker, taller build.
Oh, not only that, there's also a feature called Air View (no, it's not Samsung's version of AirPlay; it's totally different ;)). The Air View is basically similar to Sony's Floating Touch technology, except this one, you use the stylus. I think that's what the button is for.

See the picture above? Look, the stylus doesn't even touch the screen, and it recognizes it :p
So, in conclusion, here are the complete specs for this monster:
A monstrous device, if I must say.
|The Galaxy Camera|
So last night, Samsung seems to have added one more surprise to its audience; one that never seems to make it through the Rumor Mill. Although there are rumors for an Android-powered Camera, it's never made to fruition... until last night.
So, there's nothing much to say about this one, unless it's powered by Jelly Bean and has a huge 16MP sensor with 20X Optical Zoom lens, and manages to have a cellular data connectivity. I don't know yet if it's able to make a call, though. If it could, this would be one hell of a phone. Phamera is the term proposed by the blogger. If we have phablet, why can't we have a phamera? :p
So, in conclusion, here are the specs in short:
So, I guess that's all. Samsung doesn't seem to lose its touch because it recently lost to Apple in the U.S. Court. It's said that they're coming in Q4 2012 (that's around October to December) and hitting 128 countries during its initial launch, just like always. I think I'm going to get the Galaxy Note II... However, seeing the specs above, I'm starting to get goosebumps about the price :s. I hope it doesn't go for Rp6,999,999 just like the Note 10.1, because it'll be funny... Oh, and again... I think Samsung will be more competitive than before, and that might just decrease the price of their new lineups (hopefully) :p
Okay, that's all, Folks. Sorry this post is much longer than anything else, but I just love to write about this. I know I've copied some aspects of the post, but I've credited them. If you want to see the complete gallery and specs, hit the two sources below, alright? Thanks for reading, and let's wait for these two devices to hit the country :D
