Galaxy Note 2 release slots for UK & rest of Europe

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (Note II) is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. Its mammoth 5.5-inch display appeals to a lot of people, especially heavy users who spend a lot of time using their phones for daily activities. Although we knew that the Galaxy Note 2 was set for a European release in October we had no previous news of dates but today we have some news for readers about Galaxy Note 2 release slots for the UK and the rest of Europe.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 2 have been available for some time so plenty of people are just waiting to know when they might finally get their hands on this Android smartphone, sometimes referred to as a phablet. The news we have for you today is not official as it has not been confirmed by Samsung. However it does come from a source that has been very reliable on many previous occasions about upcoming Samsung devices and if it’s accurate then many readers waiting for this phone might be able to get it sooner than they thought, in fact within the next couple of weeks.

The first country in Europe that will see a release is Germany, according to Android Authority, sourced from Sam Mobile. The release date in Germany is September 27 and Italy is the next in line with a release on September 28. After this the UK, France and Netherlands are all listed with a release slot of October 1 — 2. Other European countries release dates are not yet detailed. As far as pricing goes it appears that the non-subsidized price will be around €699 (we previously gave some UK pricing here). Most people though will choose to buy the Galaxy Note 2 on a contract with a much lower subsidized price.

We’ve also previously given readers in the US details of carriers and pricing for the Galaxy Note 2. Samsung recently announced it would be available on all major US carriers by the middle of November although we had heard previous rumors that AT&T may release it as early as October 21.

In case you want a brief reminder of the key specs and features of the Note 2 we’ll tell you that as well as the 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, there’s also an impressive 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16, 32 or 64GB of internal memory (expandable), an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs on the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and will be available in two color options, Titanium Gray or Marble White.

Hopefully Samsung will soon confirm the above release information and we’ll of course bring you further developments on this. Are you eagerly waiting to get hold of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? What is it about this smartphone that most appeals to you? Let us know with your comments.

    Apple announces a new phone and then proceeds to sell it within days. Samsung tells us they have a new phone and then says wait 2 or 3 months. No wonder Apple sold 8 million in 2 days.

      That’s a very good remark. Apple makes heavy use of their momentum. Samsung does nothing with theirs, am waiting for 8 months now for the Note 2, they anounced it in september and it’s still not in stores. I realy thought they would release the Note 2 before the iPhone 5….

      Well, Apple pretty much released the same thing they already had .. They wouldn’t need much more time to even design and produce it .. So yeah .. 😛

      I have to agree. The timing and dragging out of the release of the note 2 seems a little poorly thought out. Even now we (UK) have to wait almost a fortnight. Not good for Samsung, obviously sales figures etc dont effect me personally so it’s not a big deal but even so. They could have hi jacked the Apple momemtum.

      I almost feel like they’re testing their power. Can they make people wait on their toes for their phone? Apple always creates hype with their phones so they may be trying to see how long they can keep theirs.

    I think Apple tied Samsung up with Lawsuits to slow down the release of this phone. Check it out. Right before the Iphone 5 was released, Apple hit Sam with some Huge lawsuits,,, It has taken them this long to get everything under control. Just be patient,,, This phone will be amazing when we finally get our hands on it!!!

    I walked into O2 uk today. I am an ex iPhone user. I saw a couple look over the iPhone 5 and said in there direct ‘ wtf, Im not paying £200 for a phone that’s no different and looks squashed’. I tend to agree without the foul language. iOS is tediously boring. I went for a Note, ordered in black however getting a white instead.

  5. Andy says:

    Apple all ways seam to releases the iPhone in 16, 32 and 64GB flavours but will the note 2 be released with 16, 32 and 64GB. Or like the S3, be released with 16GB one month and then a few months later with 32GB..
