Samsung Galaxy Note, 5.3″ Super AMOLED Plus, 1.4Ghz Dual-core, with N-Trig S Pen stylus input

Posted by Charbax – September 1, 2011

Awesome new 5.3" Super AMOLED Plus hybrid device from Samsung. It runs on the new 1.4Ghz Dual-core processor (upgraded Exynos?), will probably run Ice Cream Sandwich beautifully. So it's capacitive and also has what looks to be the N-Trig stylus input technology also used on the HTC flyer to let you input handwritten scribbles and annotations such as in a notepad app but also in new S Pen apps and things like annotating a screenshot of any Android instance. As you can see in this video, the 5.3" screen is huge compared to the already big 4.3" Samsung Galaxy S2 screen, which really is awesome because I believe even this device fits nicely and confortably in most pockets.

This extra size, in my opinion, really does provide for extra potential productivity, better video playback, better web browsing on its amazing 1280x800 resolution, this size and resolution offers a better hybrid of the Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich features that are coming up.

    Samsung states they are using a “unique” technology for the S Pen.  So unless that’s marketing BS then it isn’t likely N-Trig.  Though I wouldn’t put it past them that it may be just the software enhancements separating it, as the device does have a S Pen package of apps.  But just suggesting holding judgment until someone can properly find out for sure.

    Lack of hand writing recognition software though is a negative, but otherwise appears to be a very nice product.
