Samsung Electronics Co. has been running ads touting its Galaxy S III phone as its “next big thing.” Now it has something bigger.

The S III released a few months ago has a screen that measures 4.8 inches diagonally, making it bigger than even the iPhone 5, which is Apple’s largest phone yet. This week samsung  released the Galaxy Note II, a smartphone with a 5.5 inch screen.

Aside from the larger screen, the Note comes with a stylus and runs the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Jelly Bean.

Samsung and Apple dominate with nearly half of the worldwide market for smartphones.

In recent months, Samsung’s ads have been poking fun of Apple, suggesting that the iPhone 5 was merely playing catch-up with Samsung’s products.

The Note’s launch on Wednesday came a day after Apple unveiled a smaller iPad and a faster full-sized one. Apple also refreshed its line of Mac computers on Tuesday, while Microsoft will hold an event Thursday focusing on Windows 8, a major update to its lucrative operating system.
