With recent smartphones adopting the 4.0- to 4.3-inch standard for touchscreen sizes, Samsung has taken the competition to a whole new level. Well, the newly-announced Android 2.3 Samsung Galaxy Note will come with a whopping 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen and looks set to bridge a gap between smartphones and tablets . The mobile gadget also sports the same proprietary dual-core 1.4GHz processor that is found in the Galaxy Tab 7.7, making it a choice option for those deterred by larger tablets.

The other key highlight of the Galaxy Note is that it comes with a built-in stylus and features a pen-input technology dubbed "S Pen" which optimizes note-taking, drawing and screen-capturing on the gadget. Other noteworthy features include: a lightweight body of 178g, dual 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras and a 2500mAh battery.

To give you a better picture of how the "S-Pen" technology has been incorporated into the device, check out the smartphone's note-taking features in all its glory in the official Samsung video below.

Pricing and availability for the Galaxy Note have not been announced yet, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates on hardwarezone.com.sg.
