Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Is Late August, At IFA Berlin 2012
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is getting ready for debut. Galaxy Note was the first smartphone-tablet hybrid of the South Korea-based company and the rumors about its successor are starting to hit the web.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the successor of the company’s first phablet, Galaxy Note, which was officially introduced in October 2011. Just like it happens with all the highly anticipated gadgets, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 made the headlines on the tech blogs.
The first reports were saying that the new device will be launched in October, with a 5.3-inch display. MK News, quoting sources “close to the matter” comes to deny the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 October release date, saying that the South Korean phablet will be showcased in late August at IFA Berlin 2012 and that will sport a 5.5-inch display based on Samsung’s UBP technology.
It seems that Note 2 will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, the latest software update unveiled by the search engine giant at Google I/O event last week.
As well, it was rumored that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will feature a ARM Cortex A9 CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz, ARM Mali 400MP GPU, 1 GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. The device might also come with a microSD card slot.
On the other hand, the official blog of an online retailer writes that the Samsung phablet will come with a Exynos 5250 SoC, based on four ARM Cortex A15 cores, 8 megapixel camera and 1.5 GB of RAM. The same source informs that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come with a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,680 x 1,050, which sounds plausible, since it’s the successor of the Note, and an upgrade is expected by the smartphone’s fans.
A month ago Samsung was proud to announce that over seven million Samsung Galaxy Note units have been shipped world wide, making the dual-core phablet one of the most popular Samsung phones. Therefore, launching a successor for an already popular device is an obvious move for the South Koreans. A 5.5-inch HD display, quad-core CPU and the buttery-smooth Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sound like a wet dream for any Android enthusiast.
