Samsung Galaxy Note hits UK November 17

The Samsung Galaxy Note will launch in the UK on November 17, the company has confirmed, offering a combination of big-screen Android with a digital stylus. The oversized smartphone, launched at IFA 2011 last month, has a 5.3-inch 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED HD display and runs a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and various custom apps to support Samsung's included digital pen.

Inside there's quadband HSPA+, WiFi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth, along with GPS and - on certain models - NFC too. WiFi Direct is supported, and there'll be two memory versions: 16GB or 32GB, with each also having a microSD card slot. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera with Full HD video recording, while up front is a 2-megapixel camera. The battery is 2,500mAh pack, squeezed into the Galaxy Note's 146.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm frame.

There's more on the Galaxy Note in our full hands-on report. The smartphone/tablet hybrid is tipped to be arriving on AT&T in the US, having been spotted crossing the FCC with the appropriate 3G bands earlier this month.
