The 5.5 inch device is launched at IFA 2012 amid great excitement.
The original Galaxy Note was introduced at last year's IFA, and sold far more units than anyone reasonably expected.
With a 5.3-inch screen that sat somewhere between a phone and a tablet, the term "phablet" was coined and many commentators said that the device was simply too big. Ten million sales later, and Samsung has proved the naysayers wrong.
So confident is the company, that the Note II is even bigger, with a 5.5 inch screen.
What else has changed between the Note and Note II?
