Samsung launched its Galaxy Note 2 in November this year and the phablet needs no aggressive selling. However, a recent report suggests that the U.S. retailer Best Buy will sell the Galaxy Note 2 for $249.99 on a two-year contract from the day after Christmas - a $50 discount.
Currently, Best Buy sells the Galaxy Note 2 for $299.99 on a two-year contract, but per reports from TechnoBuffalo, Best Buy will sell the phablet on a $50 discount from Dec. 26 to Dec. 29.
"A source at Best Buy - who has a long standing track record with TechnoBuffalo - has provided us with the sale image you see in this post. From Dec. 26 to Dec. 29 you will be able to pick up the Galaxy Note II for $249.99 with a two-year activation, a $50 saving off of the usual price," reported TechnoBuffalo.
The Galaxy Note 2 boasts a 5.5-inch super AMOLED screen with 1680 x 1050 pixels resolution with 267 pixels per inch (ppi). A powerful quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.6 GHz powers the smartphone, which makes the Galaxy Note 2 one of the most powerful smartphones available in the market.
The Galaxy Note 2 sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with Auto Focus and LED flash. The device also includes a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. The smartphone packs in 16/32/64GB of on-board storage with the option to expand to a further 64GB using a microSD card. The phablet also includes 2GB or RAM.
A 3100mAh battery fuels the Galaxy Note 2 which offers 890 hours of standby time and 16 hours of talk-time on 3G. The Galaxy Note 2 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The Galaxy Note 2 with its high-end features is undoubtedly one of the most popular smartphones available in the market and the Best Buy offer will certainly entice customers who are looking to buy a new smartphone in the coming future.
