It was also announced to be released for At&t in January at CES 2012. The International version and the U.S variants are very similar. The International version sports a 1.4 GHz Exynos Proccesor, while the U.S models have a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor. The two processors could be considered equal in performance due to the Samsung Exynos processor being a made by Samsung and and the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 being only 100 MHz more.

The screen on the Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.29 inch Super AMOLED HD display. That’s unusual for a smartphone, however Samsung is ushering in a new era of smartphone and tablet hybrids.
