The device, which was unveiled at the start of September, benefits from a 5.3in HD Super AMOLED screen that comes with a stylus dubbed the S Pen.
Powered by a 1.4GHz dual processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note runs Google Android 2.3, also known as Gingerbread, and also comes with a 8Mp camera with LED flash, 2Mp front camera, and Bluetooth and HSPA+ connectivity.
"We're delighted with the overwhelming reception the Galaxy Note has received since it was announced earlier this month and are looking forward to offering Samsung customers a whole new smartphone experience," said Simon Stanford, managing director of Samsung Mobile.
"The Galaxy Note is a great example of Samsung's passion for innovation by bringing to market a brand new category of mobile products. It is our fastest handset to date and brings together all the benefits of our award-winning smartphone technology and services."
Samsung said the handset would be available through networks and high-street retailers. However, it did not reveal pricing details.
