The new Note is narrower and taller than the old version and will be powered by Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean." It packs a 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of RAM.

Of course, it also has the S Pen stylus, boasting some extra abilities such as Air View, which lets you preview content by hovering the stylus over icons. For example, you could hold the S Pen over a day on a calendar, and a preview window of that day's appointments will appear.
