Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Is August 30th
The huge Samsung Galaxy Note terminal, a metis between a smartphone and a tablet, was one of the most interesting gadgets introduced last year and, despite its size, more than 7 million customers have found it good enough for their needs.
There’s no wonder that its successor, Galaxy Note 2, is over-exciting the public. The good news is that we might actually see the new phablet sooner than we initially expected. According to a South Korean piblication, DDaily, Samsung have scheduled the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date for August 30th, one day ahead of the official opening of IFA Berlin 2012, the event where the 5+ inch device is very likely to debut.
The technical specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 are yet unknown, but the rumor mill speculates that the smartphone will sport a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,680 x 1,050 pixels, 1.5 GB of RAM, LTE support, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Reports say that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come with a quad-core chipset, member of the Exynos tribe.
In my opinion the next-generation Samsung phablet will not come pre-loaded with the latest Android version, as the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean integration would affect the sales of another important Samsung terminal, the Galaxy S3.
Galaxy Note 2 will definitely feature an S-Pen, continuing the heritage of its predecessor. An S-Pen would bring a suite of stylus-optimized apps, so we might be seeing the Premium Suite Package between the features of the 5.5-inch phablet.
If the rumors are true and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date is August 30th, then the South Korea-based company would have two powerful and very competitive smartphones on the market before Apple’s iPhone 5 is officially unveiled. Therefore, the iOS-powered smartphone would have a bad time fighting against two high-end Samsung smartphones, instead of one, like it happened before. Will Samsung’s approach affect Apple’s smartphone shipments? We cant’ know yet.
