Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 has been floating around in theory for a while and now its just shown its face again. According to MK Business News, the new smartphone will supposedly be announced in October, and the announcement should also say it’ll be running on Android 4.1 JellyBean, which fits in nicely with today’s unveiling at Google I/O.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumors
The original Galaxy Note had a huge 5.3” touchscreen which led to it being labelled a phablet – a phone-tablet hybrid. Since then, however, the average size of smartphone screens have increased (Samsung Galaxy S3 is 4.8-inches) and hence the Note 2 is expected to have a 5.5” screen.
The Note 2 may well be thinner than its predecessor despite the larger HD display. Earlier leaks have pointed towards the Note 2 having an unbreakable touchscreen which uses Samsung’s flexible display tech too.
The Note 2 is expected to run on the same quad-core processor that’s in the Samsung Galaxy S3, and it is also expected to have a 12MP camera capable of recording 1080p videos. This leak appears reliable, as it seems reasonable, and an October launch to tie in with Android JellyBean makes a lot of sense. We’ll keep you posted.
