Samsung Galaxy Note II event set for October 24 in NYC

We've already heard plenty about the Samsung Galaxy Note II's features, and our friends over at SlashGear have given it a full review telling us what they think (spoiler: they're quite fond of it), but it appears that Samsung has a few more details up its sleeve. The company will be holding a press event in New York City on October 24 for the Galaxy Note II, which is an event we've known about for a little while. However, today we're receiving the formal invitation to the event, and you can see it in all of its glory below.

We're not expecting any new details about the device itself at this event, but rather some information about the Galaxy Note II's US launch. Rest assured, very few things - if any - will be changing as the Galaxy Note II makes its way to the US. We'll still get that massive 5.5-inch screen and the redesigned S Pen, along with all of the nifty functionality the Galaxy Note II can boast.

That includes plenty of multitasking features, along with things like handwriting recognition, S voice, multi view, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We have to say, it's especially nice seeing the Note II running Jelly Bean out of the box, so if you want a device that's up to date as far as the Android OS is concerned, the Galaxy Note II is an excellent option. The only downside for some people will be the larger-than-normal size of the device, but for others, that will be a big bonus.

After all, the Note II's 5.5-inch screen looks great running at 1280x720 resolution, and its increased size allows for more functionality over other, smaller devices. Samsung's event is just two short weeks away, and you can bet we'll have all of the information you need to know straight from the show. Keep it tuned to Android Community folks, because even if we aren't finding out many new details about the Note II, it'll still be an event you don't want to miss!

    Neat. I’ll actually be in NYC during this event. I wonder if I can sneak in?

      Actually I was invited to the event since my company works with Samsung Mobile. You need to be an acredited member of the media and have to be approved a press pass. Plus to sneak in, you have to know where its taking place.

    I know it won’t happen but it would be awesome if att would give note owners an early upgrade since the first gen was released a mere 8 months ago here in the states. I love mine but the new specs make me jealous

    I second the unrealistic wish for an ATT upgrade from the G Note 1. But I’m getting close to pulling the trigger on an unlocked GNote2, anyway. The price is dropping daily, and is under $700 now on eBay. While the unlocked version won’t have LTE, it also won’t have the accompanying battery drain. And I find that the HSPA+ in my home area is adequate. In fact, it is a pain to travel, and have my battery sucked dry by LTE that I hardly use, and don’t really need. Plus, the international version will get quicker upgrades, has the FM radio (handy for sporting events when there are too many people around to stream and uses less battery, anyway). Also, AT&T blocks tethering apps in the Play Store for their locked phones. And not having their bloatware is a plus, since I have never used any of it, but can’t delete it.
