Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note II for the United States. The phone will be available on major US carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular by mid-November. The Galaxy Note II runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features Samsung’s 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 4G LTE support, 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED Display, 8MP and 1.9MP cameras, full HD video recording support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot (up to 64GB) and 3100mAh battery.
As we know, Galaxy Note II supports the S Pen input along with other features like Popup Note, Quick Command, Screen Recorder, S Beam, Share Shot, Idea Sketch and more.
Some of the key S Pen features include:
Easy Clip feature allows users to instantly outline and crop any content on the screen in any shape to save, share or paste. Once done cropping the image, users can freely edit the cropped content through coloring, shading, or their own personal handwriting.
Air View allows users to hover with the S Pen over an email, calendar entry, image gallery or video to preview the content without having to open it or wait for screen transitions. This feature also enables users to preview Web site content without opening the full site. Air View provides a title description for unrecognizable icons in various applications.
Quick Command uses the S Pen to quickly activate applications and services people use most often. The command pad appears with one upward swipe on the screen with the S Pen button pressed down. Users can send an email, make a call or search a location with pre-registered and customized S Pen stroke marks made on the command pad.
Idea Sketch allows users to easily add illustrations by handwriting keywords on the S Note. It provides illustration images that match the handwritten keywords. It’s a fancy illustration match function that will allow users to express, organize and visualize ideas in a more innovative and creative way. Users can even customize and add in their own illustrations library.
Photo Notes allows users to create handwritten notes on the back of digital photos.
