Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is available for pre-order on Verizon and AT&T. The phone was launched earlier today at Samsung’s Galaxy Note II World Tour 2012 NYC press event.

Apparently, the handset is available with Verizon and AT&T for $299.99 on two-year contract. For those not interested in the contract, they have to shell out $699.99 for Verizon phablet and $649.99 for AT&T phablet, SlashGear has reported.

Featuring a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, the device is powered by a quad-core processor. The LTE-enabled Galaxy Note 2 ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is available in grey and white variants.

The orders are likely to be shipped by Nov.27, later than competitors. The Note 2 is rated for up to 15 hours talk time and 12.5 days standby time. The phablet comes with 16GB storage that can be expanded up to 64GB and 2GB RAM.
