Samsung GALAXY Note 5.3 dances on tablet-smartphone border

by

I guess the Samsung GALAXY Note 5.3 is somewhat like the now discontinued (in the US, at least) Dell Streak 5 – with a 5.3″ display, this Android-powered device is slightly larger than the average full touchscreen smartphone, but definitely a couple of inches short of the smallest tablet. Still, we do look forward in anticipation of just what Samsung has in store for this new product category that intends to integrate core on-the-go benefits of various mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability.

Basically, Samsung intends to deliver the artistic freedom of a paper notebook alongside the benefits of smartphone technology and services while you’re on the go. 5.3″ proves the GALAXY Note has the largest screen size where smartphones are concerned, being the first of its kind to carry a 5.3 HD Super AMOLED display, an expansive high-resolution screen, while sporting advanced pen-input technology known as S Pen.

What makes this generous display superior to the rest is also a 180 degree viewing angle that enables content to be shared comfortably with others, so that they need not constantly readjust your GALAXY Note while you’re trying to show the latest YouTube video to the rest of your mates behind you. Interestingly enough, it seems that Samsung has ported over their slimming expertise to the GALAXY Note 5.3 with a 9.65mm thin body.

Inside the chassis lies a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+ and LTE support, Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the operating system of choice, an 8-megapixel camera at the back with LED flash, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calls, a beefy 2,500mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, Wi-Fi support, and a choice between 16GB and 32GB capacities.

No idea on pricing or availability as at press time, but we do know that this puppy is going to rock and take off in a big way. After all, Samsung might have just redefined the 5″ tablet/smartphone boundary with their latest addition.
