Samsung Highlights Multitasking Feature On Galaxy Note II Smartphone In New Promo Video


It’s no secret the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note II is going to be one heck of a phone. In addition to the quad-core power and S Pen, it’s the multitasking that’s noteworthy on the device. No, we’re not talking about the traditional multitasking found in most Android devices— we’re talking about Sammy’s special variation of multitasking. As seen in the Galaxy Note 10.1, the Galaxy Note II will have split-screen multitasking that is unique, compared to other Android devices. In a special promo video released by Sammy recently, it highlights the potential of multitasking on a Galaxy Note II through a simulated demonstration. Using an apps bar that’s tiled vertically or horizontally, the S Pen can drag and drop various apps which opens a new app above or below an existing app that’s already running. What this means is users will be able to see two live apps simultaneously and literally do two things at the same time. That’s an awfully cool feature if you ask me.

While the multitasking feature is pretty cool, you’ll want to note that the feature demonstrated in the promo video is for the Korean version of the device. Then again, we suspect that Samsung will certainly include this in the other versions of the device when we see them around mid-November or so. Hit the source link to check out the demonstration in all its glory.

    It’s actually on some of the UK phones – the ones with later firmwares, XXALIK or higher. A lot of them are XXALIE though, so I guess we’re waiting for a firmware push to get it.
