Jealous much? I know I am. Despite snapping up the iPhone 5 as soon as it went on sale last Friday, I'm very much looking forward to getting my hands on Samsung's super-sized Galaxy Note II. Those who are living in Korea, where the device just kicked off its "world tour," can pick it up from today.

The Galaxy Note II is available on three carriers in Samsung's homeland, including SKT, KT, and LG U+; all of which are offering super speedy LTE connectivity. The handset itself will be available in Marble White and Titanium Grey, with 32GB or 64GB of storage. Other specifications include that whopping 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

It will also come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed.

The Galaxy Note II will eventually be available in 128 countries worldwide, with its release in the United States expected in November. Those in the United Kingdom will get it before then after Samsung announced an October 1 launch for Britain on Wednesday.
