The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be coming to Canada on basically every carrier: Bell, TELUS, WIND, Rogers, Mobilicity, Videotron and SaskTel. Samsung stated “this fall” and that probably means very early November. While the price of the 5.5-inch phone/tablet is still a mystery, some carriers have officially placed this as “coming soon.” TELUS was the first, then Videotron, now SaskTel has followed suit. SaskTel has high hopes for this Android, noting that those interested should “Fill out the form below and stay up to date on the Smartphone that’s changing how we experience the world: The new Samsung Galaxy Note II.”

The Note II sports the S-Pen, comes with a 1.6GHz quad core processor, OS 4.1 Jelly Bean, 8MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and a 3100mAh battery.

    If this years nexii disappoint this is the phone i am going to go with, glad we finally get a quad core exynos device here

      I read from a cyanogen dev that Exynos chipset GPL source code submissions are incomplete and outdated (both). Samsung is refusing to cooperate with the GPL requirements.

      I own a Galaxy S3 but will likely never buy another Samsung product because of this.

      I urge you all to support the GPL by doing the same.

    Woot! If it wasn’t for the horribly glossy disgusting backplate and Touchwhiz I would be all over this…

    Here’s hoping HTC makes a Nexus device 5 inches or larger with a matte polycarbonate body.

      Put a case on it and change the launcher. Protection and customization.

    • Dalex

      Cases are ugly bulky POSs. The last phone I used a case for was the Iphone 3g (I shudder thinking of that crappy phone). Launchers only work on the homescreen/drawer, the menus are still the same. I could root and put CM10 or another AOSP rom on, but that would kill the S-Pen functionality.

    Is stock android pointless on a note 2? I ask because I’m not sure if the stylus can be used without touchwiz. If that’s the case I’ll always have to wait for an “official” update.

  • Is this Pentaband?

    Is there two versions of this phone or is it a Pentaband?
    Have they released those details yet?

    Exciting if it’s one version for all carriers.
