Samsung Galaxy Note II Specs Leaked – Exynos 4412 Chip, 4G LTE, and Jelly Bean

According to a leaked spec sheet, the Galaxy Note II from Samsung is going to launch with some very impressive specs. For starters, it will come shipped with Jelly Bean, be powered by the new quad-core Exynos 4412 processor at 1.4GHz, and will support 4G LTE networks. Other notable features include an 8MP camera, a large 5.5″ Super AOMLED display with a resolution of 1280×720 (Wait, no 1080p like HTC’s?), and will even come in a couple of different colors.

With the unveiling taking place in just a couple of days at this year’s IFA in Europe, all of these leaked spec sheets and rumors can finally end and we can get to more important things such as, “When can I get one?”

  • ThatsHowISeeIt

    I’m waiting for the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon. Seriously, Samsung needs to do carrier-wide releases of their flagship phones. It is idiotic to have to switch carriers to get the phone you want.

    I hope Verizon does not screw up AGAIN by not carrying this phone.

  • Jon Garrett

    Get me the Note II AND give me an S3 and I’ll marry you, lol.

    • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

      lol

  • cb2000a

    1080 is not really needed at this size. My Note has a very crisp and beautiful screen.The Exynos processor will rock (as well as the unbreakable screen).

  • Ra Has

    Have anyone hear about the release date for the note yet?

  • dmagicp

    Just a little info for all of you. There is no inside info here, just my opinion. I believe that Verizon will carry the Note 2, but they just can’t tell us that. They have contracts with Samsung and LG, both have phablets to sell. The solution? We have seen this time and time again. I will site the Razr VS Razr Maxx 2 months later scenario as an example. I believe that VZ will lead us to think they are not going to carry the Note so that they can satisfy LG and get some sales in for the intuition, because after all, Samsung is going to have to build a version of the Note with the SnapDragon processor to be compatible with their LTE network. That gives them 2 or 3 months to sell the Intuition, and rack up some sales for LG. Then out of the blue, and just in time for the holidays, Verizon will announce that they are going to be carrying the Note 2. I don’t think anyone who is serious about smartphones is going to actually consider the LG disaster a worthy replacement for the Note, but the uninformed, casual user will listen to the Verizon Store employee as they basically lie and tell them that the Intuition is just as good, or better than the Note and will just go with it. I doubt seriously that anyone who reads this forum is going to get duped into buying an Intuition, but just hold out and wait for it, because there is no way Verizon is going to let the other carriers sell the Note and miss out on it because they chose to carry the weird (what kind of resolution is that anyway?) unorthodox looking LG Intuition.

  • Jeff “Big Red”

    I am all for this phone to come to verizon. Hell make it 6.5″ and I would love it! It would be nice to have a bigger screen. hoping this will solve the void I have with not having a tablet anymore…

    • dmagicp

      My friends tell me that the 5.5 inch screen is going to look ridiculous, but I think that sammy is going to nail it with a really thin bezel and by making smart use of the case. I almost never use my phone to go on the net unless I am out and away from my tablet and have to browse for something in a pinch. This phone would make it very comfortable to browse and watch videos, and I might even find myself reaching for my tablet a little less.

  • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

    Loved my Note but above all it needs a better battery and a better camera. With cams like the One X, this is inexcusable.

  • Breezer23

    If this is coming to Verizon I will be jumping over to Shared Data I guess. I highly doubt Samsung will, but if they ditched the plastic chassis that would just be icing on the cake. Samsung really needs to ditch the plastic…. and soon.

  • digitalicecream

    I’m excited about this because I want that rom for my Note.

  • Destroythanet

    Personally, I’m not a fan of huge phablets, but it’s always good to have two screen size options with flagship specs (GSIII and Galaxy Note).

  • Damu793

    I hope Verizon get this phone :)

  • Diablo81588

    I want to see someone hold a 5.5 inch phone up to their ear. What a joke.

    • Butters619

      Ignorance at it’s finest. Everybody I know who owns a Note loves it.

      • mikeGsays

        Diablo has obviously never heard of Bluetooth headsets before…..

        • Diablo81588

          That’s even worse..

          • mikeGsays

            Yeah, it’s AWFUL having to talk on the phone with both hands free, using a BT headset that’s wind and noise cancelling…. I couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to do that – we should all just keep our 3.5″ iPhones, you’re right….

          • Diablo81588

            My biggest issue with BT headsets are that they make you look like you’re talking to yourself. Not to mention, you have to have that stupid thing stuck in your ear all day. Who wants to do that? Why can’t they just keep the phones at a size thats comfortable to use in one hand? The iPhone is too small, but we don’t have to get into tablet sizes to make it sound like an “upgrade” from the previous gen. Ideally, 4-4.5″ screens are the perfect blend of ergonomics and plenty of screen real estate.

      • Diablo81588

        I’d rather not look like a tool.

        • Butters619

          Too late.

  • reyalP

    Apple is currently studying these specs and filing patents so they can sue later!

  • bkosh84

    They are going to troll everyone and release it as a Sprint Exclusive, lol.

  • steve

    We need a SAMOLED + screen. + looks so much nicer than just SAMOLED.

  • jaredgreenwald

    Is this VZW LTE or ATT LTE?

    • Butters619

      South Korea LTE

  • AJA0

    If they can get this on VZW + 2GB of RAM.. I’ll pay full retail for it (to keep my unlimited 4GLTE).

    • yarrellray

      Verizon WON’T SEE THIS DEVICE. They already will have the Lg Vu and the Htc Note competitor. Samsung will not be making a Verizon Galaxy Note 2. This device will see Tmobile and At&t first then Sprint afterwards.

    • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.t.roach.90 Andrew T Roach

      LTE is very overrated and is a power hog. I left my Verizon unlimited LTE and have been more than satisfied with AT&T’s HSPA+; which is just a work horse and couldnt get more stable.

      • AJA0

        AT&T.. Stable.. Isn’t that an oxymoron? I hate AT&T with a passion.. You couldn’t pay me to sign up with them again. I’m forced to use their God-awful internet and it goes out several times a day, and the costs are outrageous.

  • jim

    idiot here needs help,trying to install this ‘BAMF Paradigm v2.2 [4.1.1] JRO03L ‘ just not sure how to go about it

    • JoshGroff

      After wiping, go to install from SD/internal storage, whatever it prompts you for, navigate to the zip file and hit power, which will select the zip, then it will give you a few nos and a yes, navigate to yes and click power again, it should start installing and then just reset system (or power off/whatever) after that.

      Installation instructions

      Wipe data

      Flash BAMF Rom

      Flash BAMF Gapps

      Reboot

      If you haven’t figured out how to get into recovery, just download ROM Manager from the Play Store and use it to reboot into recovery. From there, wipe, install (ROM and GApps) and reboot. :)

      Good luck.

          http://www.wugfresh.com/

          Download the Toolkit (1.5.3). Install this and follow the steps for setting up drivers and, just for grins, also follow the steps for unlock/root again as this will also install the latest ClockworkMOD recovery for you.

          From there, the instructions on BAMF’s page will get you up and running.

          • jim

            i used the tool kit ,just unlocked and rooted from it,thought everything was fine

          • PC_Tool

            Can you still boot into the existing OS (4.03)?

          • Jim McClain

            Running 4.0.4 now,everything is running fine

          • PC_Tool

            Can you use Wugfresh’s tool to reboot into recovery?

            …when booting, at the Google logo, is the unlock icon visible at the bottom?

          • Jim McClain

            Am running tool kit over again

          • PC_Tool

            Good luck. :)

          • Jim McClain

            In recovery options, Twrp was checked Instead Of CWM

          • PC_Tool

            Either way, it should work… The toolkit should flash the recovery in fastboot, reboot the device, and edit some system files (to prevent the OS from re-writing recovery).

            The only thing I can think of is that it is somehow not editing those files or the recovery is bad.

            Have you tried clockwork instead of TWRP?

          • Jim McClain

            I plunged back into the tool kit and got clockwork to come up on phone, installed jelly bean from there, whew thanks a lot for the help,I owe ya one dude

          • PC_Tool

            No problem. Glad it all worked out. What do you think so far? Much better than ICS?

          • Jim McClain

            Yep, phone is working fine. But still getting the triangle

  • jim

    unlocked and rooted this darn nexus, just not sure what to do now

  • James_C_L

    Are you guys missing this regarding VZW “be powered by the new quad-core Exynos 4412 processor at 1.4GHz, and will support 4G LTE networks”

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.yager Joseph A. Yager

      I didn’t miss it – but it doesn’t convince me since it’s not official.

  • jim

    how do you wipe data ?
    sorry for dumb questions

    • JoshGroff

      Boot into recovery, there should be a wipe menu.

  • swag

    Wondering if the recent win from Apple will have any impact on how Samsung phones look from now on…to avoid any more dumb patent lawsuits. With that being said, wondering if this Galaxy Note 2 will even be released anymore? may be pushed back? I dont know

    • http://www.toysdiva.com Toys Samurai

      That would be a great news because I hate rounded corner phone. Something that looks like the Sony Xperia is more of my taste.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.yager Joseph A. Yager

    Does it work on LTE with the quad-core processor? Or would they need to downgrade to a dual-core?

    • znewman

      I’m pretty sure that it was just the Tegra 3 that had issues with the common LTE chip.

      • BSweetness

        The international version of the S3 doesn’t have a Tegra 3. It has a quad-core Exynos that’s also incompatible with LTE.

        • znewman

          My bad. You’re right. So I assume that they have worked out the issue.

          • BSweetness

            Samsung created a new version of the quad-core Exynos that’s LTE-compatible. The only device on the market that’s currently using it is the LTE S3 that was released in South Korea.

    • BSweetness

      Samsung released a S3 with a quad-core Exynos processor, LTE, and 2GB of RAM in South Korea. It has a newer version of the quad-core Exynos that is compatible with LTE. So it’s possible that the Note 2 will feature the LTE-compatible version as well.

  • http://twitter.com/cheese cheese

    meh. waiting on Exynos 5250.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Soooo you’re looking for a nexus device?…. Don’t think we’ll ever see a nexus phone with a 3000 mah battery

      • http://twitter.com/cheese cheese

        There are rumors of LG, Samsung, and Sony having their own Nexus. It’s possible a phone can get 3000 mAh battery.

        • http://www.toysdiva.com Toys Samurai

          Except that every Nexus phones made so far has been crippled some ways to make it less competitive than the makers’ own flagships. For example, all 3 Nexus launched with Pentile screen. Neither the Nexus S nor the Galaxy Nexus has a SD card slot. The Galaxy Nexus has a less than stellar camera sensor when comparing to phones released earlier.

    • Kyle Cummings

      hope you are going to be happy with your current phone for a while.

    • Fatty Bunter

      You’re being down-voted because that’s an unrealistic wishlist. You really think a pure AOSP device will have those specs in 2012?

  • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 TG

    coming to verizon?

    • ceejw

      I doubt that Verizon would carry this and the Optimus Vu or the Intuition or whatever they renamed it to.

      • violator702

        Why not? They are made by two different companies.

      • ThatsHowISeeIt

        The Optimus Vu is a POS garbage compared to the second generation Note.

    • Darksthour

      If it does you can bet it wont have that processor

      • BSweetness

        Samsung got the quad-core Exynos working with LTE on the S3 in South Korea. So it’s possible they’ve got them working together on the Note 2.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Pretty sure that wasn’t integrated.

          • BSweetness

            It wasn’t. But the leaked specs on the Note 2 don’t say it’s integrated either.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            At this point you won’t see a non-integrated LTE modem in a US model, that’s a battery killer…. It’s almost an automatic S4 in all us Models. Which makes the most sense.

        • dmagicp

          Actually the Exynos will work with Verizons 4G network with no problem. It’s the switching from 4 to 3G that doesn’t work. As soon as they figure that part out, they will be compatible.

      • Erik Cho

        It sucks that this is becoming one of many common punch lines that’s associated with Verizon. But it’s probably true and not even because of whatever hardware limitations there were in the past but because of Verizon’s damn greed.

        • chris125

          Not just Verizon but all us carriers who have lte get a different chip than international versions without lte. Blame lte

          • Erik Cho

            Well yeah of course there is the chips that aren’t compatible. But I’m just saying… I think this is one of those phones that a lot of people want to see wide spread, but with Verizon in particular, you know they have their own agenda even besides the current limitations of the technology.

            And the technology is not what I’m most concerned about, because with Android devices in particular, we’ve seen that the technology gradually keeps up.

        • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

          I believe it’s mainly the issue of LTE not playing nice with Exynos or Tegra. nVidia is working on a SoC that includes an LTE modem (I can’t remember the name) and S4 obviously works well with LTE (since that’s what most of the other chips have been subbed with).

          • Erik Cho

            I’m positive that the hardware eventually will catch up, no doubt about that. The demand is high enough. If we don’t see it this time around I’m almost confident we’ll see some iteration from the Exynos or Tegra by the time the Note 3 rolls around, if it’s not PRE-BANNED because of some dang sanctions put on it.

            I’m emphasizing Verizon’s greed more than anything because I’m ultimately hoping to sell my GNexus to get this if I can by paying full retail.

          • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

            Ohhh I get what you mean by “greed” now. Meaning Verizon is making everyone pay full price to retain unlimited data. Agreed.

          • Steven Ortiz

            No, it means that they overcharge you (non-competative price). This is the reason why I left them for another company that doesn’t.

          • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

            Funny, I pay less on Verizon than I have with Sprint or AT&T. And I have unlimited calling to mobile lines, unlimited text and data. About $81.

          • Erik Cho

            how does that work??? I’m paying $85 bucks for 400 minutes, unlimited data, and unlimited texts. But that’s including my military discount.

          • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

            There was a time when Verizon tried doing a promotion like Sprint had with their unlimited everything plan. I read about it on a tech blog sometime in the spring of 2011. Verizon was only offering this in a test market that only included certain parts of Texas in Louisiana. My area was one of them. Unlimited text and talk to mobile phones for $65 plus (at the time) unlimited data for $30. After a work discount the total cost was fell to below $82. That plan was not advertised and you had to ask for it specifically.

          • Erik Cho

            Typical Verizon… sneak a peak and when they realize the consumers would like it too much (more than they could leverage the hell out of it) on a grand scale they shut it down.

          • njbob

            Omg ..Really.. Ur one in a what 50 to 100 million people who have tried or been with verizon … And ever said they paid less than sprint wtf are u smokin … Verizon has good service but they bleed u dry to have it…Enjoy ur service but dont blow smoke up someones ass about how cheap verizon is u look like a fool….

          • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

            Did you not even read what I wrote? I got in on a special promotion, which I said I knew was a nice deal. And I’m smoking somethin’ good anyways. :-D

          • Steven Ortiz

            That’s a lot for only one line. I pay for 4 lines, other companies have better deals. LTE is not worth it unless you are running a business from your phone or tablet.

  • RW-1

    Will it have a single hardware home button, or have they learned not to copy apple yet? (Couldn’t resist ….)

    • droyd4life

      Samsung has been using home buttons on their devices far longer than apple has. Apple didn’t invent the physical home button on a phone, get over it.

      • Fatty Bunter

        As we know now, all Apple would have to do is argue that a Samsung home button dilutes their market value. Not completely out of the realm of possibility…
