A bigger, better Note will be upon us by the end of this month it seems. While nothing more has been said aside from the IFA 2012 Unpacked event debut, let’s have a look at what rumors have to say about this the specs of this upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to take on iPhone 5 this fall
According to UbuntuLife, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will include an Exynos 5240 dual-core chip that’s been clocked at 1.7GHz, and, if rumors prove true, 4G LTE connectivity. 1.5GB of RAM has been mentioned, but this could be disappointing compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its 2GB RAM.
As yet there’s no official word so we’ll have to wait. Samsung had a small amount of success with the first Note, limited by the lack of carrier support until recently (T-Mobile is finally joining AT&T with carrying the device). It’s still to be seen if other US carriers will adopt it, and obviously Samsung will want to sell as many of the original Notes before releasing the successor.
When the Note 2 does come out it’ll have to fight with the iPhone 5, also due out in the fall. The specs of the original Galaxy Note are supposedly as follows: 5.29” HD WXGA Super AMOLED screen, an 800×1280 display, a dual-core 1.4GHz chip, an ARM cortex A9 CPU, and an 8MP camera with 1920×1080 video at 30fps. The iPhone 5 is expected to boast a 4-inch Retina Display, quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity.
