Samsung has unveiled  the wildly anticipated and far rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 2 at its  event at IFA 2012 in Berlin.

Despite pushing the boundaries into the phablet area, and making a brand new mobile device class on its approach, the Samsung Galaxy Note was a surprise hit. It’s successor is bigger, badder and altogether more endearing.

On the front could be a huge 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with 1280 x 720 resolution in 16:9 screen measurements relation. It’s a great looking screen and below the glare of the show floor lights it looked spectacular.

The design seems very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III and there is a sense that Samsung’s “family” of devices has been made in 2012. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 could be a nice device. It’s still plastic and attracts lots of fingerprints, however it feels solid within the hand.

The Galaxy Note 2′s internals make even the best smartphone look puny. First up there’s a thumping 2GB of RAM to play with, then back that up with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and you have yourself one beast of a smartphone.

Samsung even had the decency to include the Android v4.1 Jelly Bean OS, creating this new Note one thing of a shining star. However Android is scraped with Samsung’s traditional lacquer of customisation and anyone accustomed to a Samsung device can realize everything new and fresh.

But the Note is not only a giant phone, it is a device with a stylus, or S Pen, as we should always call it. The S Pen brings a variety of clever functions with it, as well as a good way for playing with apps. The S Pen offers higher grip than the previous version, in conjunction with a brand new rubber tip.

We’re really impressed with what we have seen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The 16:9 ratio of the screen and the huge amount of inches it covers would scare anybody at first sight, however the Note 2 feels right and exciting when you hold it.
