The product will be dispatched, on a first-come first-served basis to the customers. A pre-booking order cannot be cancelled once placed.
The phablet was recently unveiled on August 29, 2012 at the IFA 2012 Berlin Consumer Electronics Show.
The Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch (14.09 cm) HD Super AMOLED screen, which is narrower but longer than on the first version. The processor is faster, and the software has been further adapted for the included stylus - the phone's signature feature.
The Note runs the latest version of Google's Android operating system - version 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Note is designed to work well with a stylus for jotting notes and drawing on a screen, while styluses for other devices tend to be an afterthought.
The phone has an internal memory of 16 GB, which is expandable up to 64GB using a microSD card. It will come packed with a 3100 mAh battery. The phone has an 8 megapixel camera and a 1.9 megapixel front camera.
The Note's large screen also makes the phone more like a tablet and more suitable for playing games and consuming content. Samsung started selling a tablet version of the Note this month.
It is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The smartphone will be available in the Titanium Gray colour.
