Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Not A Big Enough Upgrade To Consider For Current Note Users?

By  | 

Samsung is developing a successor to the Galaxy Note, and it’s thought it’ll have a bigger screen. An “insider source” told GSMArena that the new phone will have a revamped design and a bigger screen. This source also said that the Note 2 release date may be moved forward to steal a march on the expected release of the Apple iPhone 5.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumors heat up

The Samsung Note 2 is rumored to come with a 5.5” Super AMOLED screen and a similar design to the popular Samsung Galaxy S3. The Note 2’s screen will be 0.2” bigger than the original Note, but the second handset will be less wide.

The Note 2 is also rumored to feature a new Exynos 5250 chipset with a dual-core ARM-15 processor, 2GB of RAM and an 8MP camera with an improved sensor. This phablet was pencilled in for an October launch but this latest leak has it down for a September release to tempt customers away from the iPhone 5.

While it’s expected that Samsung will revamp the Note, it’s not certain it will bring out a new one while the original is still selling well in some areas and has still to launch in others. Samsung is also believed to be working on a larger version of its phablet the Galaxy Note 10.1.

On a side note, while we did consider the Samsung Galaxy S3 an excellent buy, we did mention that those who own a Samsung Galaxy S2 might not find it a big enough upgrade to ditch their 2-year contract so fast. Now judging by the rumored Galaxy Note 2 specs, we might just say the same for those who currently own the original Galaxy Note.
