A few days ago we reported that Samsung is looking to release their much awaited Galaxy Note 2 on August 30, a day before the start of IFA Event in Berlin, However the recent reports suggests that the Galaxy Note 2 might come much earlier than expected. A few days earlier Samsung sent out invites for the media for an event on August 15, however according to a BGR, a source closer to Samsung informed that Samsung is actually looking to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 on 15th August event.
As per the previous rumours, It was believed that Samsung would be launching the next generation phablet on August 30, a day before the IFA Tech show in Berlin, however it is also known that Samsung want the device to be launched ahead of the launch of sixth generation smartphone from Apple. Hence for now we can safely assume the rumour date as 15th August to be true, however there is no confirmation from the Samsung officials on this.
The same source also confirmed that the second generation phablet will be having a 5.5 inch screen along with 1.6 GHz dual core processor and 8MP Camera along with all the other specs which we have already reported in other reports.
According to the source, Samsung would unveil the device on 15th August, however the source did not confirm the actual release plans from Samsung. It is also believed that the next generation phablet is going top outshine the earlier launched Samsung Galaxy SIII which is believed to be the best smartphone on planet at the moment. Hence if you have not yet got yourselves a Galaxy S3, I would certainly suggest you to wait for sometime because Samsung has never let down the expectation and this time I am sure they are going to launch the next generation phablet which is certainly going to outclass all other products.
The first and original Galaxy Note was released back in September 2011 in IFA trade show. It has been more than a year for the original Galaxy Note being in market. And these days we are hearing a lot of rumours about its successor as Galaxy Note 2.
It has been rumoured that the Galaxy Note 2 is soon to be unveiled in a special Unpacked mobile event from Samsung on August 30, a day before the IFA 2012 kicks off in Germany. Surely there is no more anticipated phone/phablet than the successor of Galaxy Note from Samsung and surely it will be the star of the evening.
The news came right from Asia where DDaily reported that Samsung has scheduled a special Unpacked event on the eve of August 30 and has already been confirmed by Samsung. The event will take place in Berlin at 7 PM local time.
According to the earlier rumours, The Galaxy Note 2 is going to feature a larger screen than its predecessor, which is reportedly a huge 5.5 inch screen. The device is expected to run on Quad Core processor, most likely to be Exynos 4 Quad Core processor, S Pen, 3G and 4G Connectivity, rumoured 13MP Camera,possibly 64GB memory along with 16GB and 32GB Variants. The device will most likely run on the latest version of Android 4.1(Jelly Bean) however the news is not yet confirmed from Samsung.
It has also being rumoured that Samsung is interested to launch the Galaxy Note 2 before the launch of next Apple product – probably iPhone 5 which is rumoured to be released in October. Going to the same rumour, August 30th seems to be a perfect release for Galaxy Note 2.
However we believe that the roadmap of Galaxy Note 2 will follow similar to the release of Galaxy S3 where it was released first in European region with 3G speeds and the 4G came afterwards.
For the last one month we have been hearing a lot of rumours about the Samsung’s plan to launch the successor to their phablet- Galaxy Note. We have already reported earlier that Samsung is planning to release the sequel for their phablet which will have 5.5 inch screen.
One of the notable factor which was responsible for huge amount of success for Samsung Galaxy Note was its screen and its screen size. And following that huge amount of success, Samsung is planning to launch the successor to it, probably named as Galaxy Note 2. However, the guys at Android Guys have reported that the Galaxy Note might come with the flexible touchscreen.
Samsung has been working on flexible touchscreen technology for a long time, and we did hear a lot of news at the start of year that Samsung is going to launch its flexible devices this year. However the existence of the technology is still under curtains.
We heard similar reports/rumours for Galaxy S3 as well, however the device did not feature the flexible display. But with the second big release for samsung this year, and probably last big release for the year, there is a great possibility that the device comes with the flexible display.
The Galaxy Note 2 has been in news for its huge screen size which is alleged to be 5.5 inch featuring 1680*1050 resolutions. Moreover the Korean website, http://news.mk.co.kr/, quoted that the device might be launched on Jelly Bean, which is the latest flavour for Android(Version 4.1). Other rumoured specs include a dual core Exynos processor and 12MP camera.
No other information about the device is available at the moment. Samsung has always been mastermind in protecting their device’s specs and names right till the end moment, so nothing can be confirmed at the moment, but we promise to bring all the latest news about the release of Galaxy Note 2. So keep checking for this place. You can also bookmark our website by pressing ctrl+d.
During the past few days we have been hearing a lot about Samsung’s new plans for the next iteration of their Galaxy Note. The original Galaxy Note, which was earlier criticized for its huge size for a phone, became a huge hit later on and following that Samsung is showing up the plans for the release of the Galaxy Note 2. Galaxy Note 2 has been into news mainly for the rumours that the screen size is still going to increase as compared to its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy Note was a huge device for a smartphone measuring 5.3 inch diagonally, however if rumours are to be believed, Galaxy Note 2 is going to follow the same trend set by its predecessor. The next phablet will be having a 5.5 inch display as earlier reported.
As far as its camera is concerned, we were assuming that it is going to have either an 8MP or 12MP camera. However, today we learned something more about the upcoming phablet. According to MK Business News, The Galaxy Note 2 is going to have a whopping 13 MP rear end camera which will take the photography to a new level.
Samsung has always focused on mainly two things for its smartphones, which are its screen and camera. And as earlier reported the Galaxy Note 2 is going to have a pentile display which is similar to the recently released Galaxy S3 instead of the traditional RGB variant used in Galaxy SII.
There aren’t much more details about the device’s hardware, however the device is almost certain to be running on ICS and Samsung will be giving the Android 4.1 Jelly bean update as soon as possible. The Galaxy Note 2 might also include some of the innovative technologies from Galaxy S3 such as S-Beam, S-Voice, AllShare Play etc. The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to come to the market sometime in August and we all are really excited to see it coming to the market as soon as possible. Meanwhile lets take a look at some of its rumoured specs:

The tweet from @SamsungMobileME read: “Which one of these are you excited about: #GalaxyBeam #GalaxyTab2 #GalaxyNote2 #Poll.”

Although there have been Speculations about the Galaxy Note 2 to be launching in September and the rumours are all over the internet, there is no official word about its existence or its release date as of now.
