It also has an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera with HD video recording capabilities. The Samsung GALAXY Note II is set to launch in October starting in major European, Asian, and Middle East markets.

RFMD enables Samsung with a broad range of 3G/4G front end solutions, including PowerSmart, 3G/4G power amplifiers, switches, and RFMD's advanced power management solutions. RFMD supports Samsung across all leading baseband architectures.
