Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Confirmed By Samsung Arabia Tweet
Rumors saying that the South Korean-based company is readying a successor for Samsung Galaxy Note, unofficially dubbed Galaxy Note 2, surface a couple of months ago, but, until now, we were a little skeptical about a new Samsung phablet.
As everyone expected Samsung gave the “no comment” treatment to the rumors, but Samsung Mobile Arabia tweeted the following “Which one of these are you excited about: #GalaxyBeam #GalaxyTab2 #GalaxyNote2?” So is this a confirmation that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is on its way, or just another way to create some buzz?
Unfortunately, Samsung Mobile Arabia is not an official Twitter channel for the South Korean phone maker.
Samsung previously confirmed that 7 million Galaxy Note units were shipped since the 5.3-inch smartphone debuted at IFA 2011 Berlin, therefore the device has become one of the star products of the company.
Rumor has it that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come with an even bigger display (5.5 inches is the most common speculation), 12 megapixel camera an a quad-core chipset. Since the first Note came with the dual-core Exynos of the Samsung Galaxy S2, overclocked at 1.4 GHz, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might arrive with the Exynos 4 Quad CPU of the Samsung Galaxy S3, clocked at a higher frequency.
The phablet will certainly sport an S-Pen and the operating system will be completed by a suite of applications optimized to work better with the stylus included in the package.
We are also expecting Note 2 to come pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the new software update that will be unveiled this week at Google i/O event on June 27th. As about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date, it was reported that it will be announced in October, around the announcement of iPhone 5, therefore we might see it at the very event where its successor was unveiled, IFA Berlin.
