While consumers eagerly anticipate the arrival of the much-rumored Galaxy Note 3, the successor to the Galaxy Note 2, Samsung's old warhorse continues to be popular with buyers who are looking for a top-end Android smartphone. What's more, now e-retailer eBay is offering the unlocked Galaxy Note 2 for just $499.99.
The best-selling Galaxy Note 2, released in October 2012, is among Samsung's most popular handsets. The phablet raked in 5 million unit sales worldwide in just 60 days of release.
The eBay deal is for a limited period only and those interested can purchase the 16GB version of the Galaxy Note 2. Those looking for the Marble White version will be disappointed, as the deal is only valid for the Titanium Gray color. Moreover, the shipping for the phablet is free so you just pay $499.99 for the unlocked Galaxy Note 2.
"With the Note III nowhere on the horizon (yet), there are undoubtedly those who are still tempted to give Samsung's second phablet marvel a try. For those looking to make the jump to an ample 5.5" screen, eBay has turned up today's second deal alert, with a gray 16GB Note II going for just $499.99 with free standard shipping," notes Android Police.
The top-of-the-line Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5-inch display. The phablet is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and has 16GB of on-board storage (with expandable memory option). The smartphone also touts an 8-megapixel primary camera and comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
What's more, the Galaxy Note 2 also comes with the S Pen stylus, which sets the device apart from other 5-inch plus smartphones in the same category.
