Samsung: Galaxy Note II to sell three times faster than the original

When Samsung revealed the original Galaxy Note last year, consumers were undecided as to whether or not it was a viable option for the everyday smartphone owner. And, while that question may still not be answered, we’ve witnessed the device’s success first-hand. Regardless, Samsung introduced its successor last month in Berlin at IFA 2012, and the device packs quite the punch. With a 5.5-inch display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a quad-core processor, the Galaxy Note II is destined to be a powerhouse.

At a company briefing today in Korea, J.K. Shin, head of the manufacturer’s mobile division, speculated that the Note II would sell three times faster than the original, considering the numerous additional carriers that will be offering the device this time around. In terms of raw numbers, Samsung’s new flagship is slated to go on sale in 128 markets, and be available on 260 different network operators. The original Galaxy Note was only available on AT&T in the US, with an extremely brief stint of availability on T-Mobile. The Galaxy Note II  is set to arrive later this year on at least five major US carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint an US Cellular.

    Hope Sprint gets on the ball on making this available. I am really leaning toward the Galaxy Note II to replace my HTC EVO.
