Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Is October, Same As iPhone 5
All kinds of rumors are spinning around devices that are about to be released. It’s the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as well. According to an MK Business News report, the South Korean phone maker will launch the device that is considered the successor of the Galaxy S Note, in October. In my opinion, the date is not coincidental as Apple’s iPhone 5 is said to be released in the same month. Normally, I consider that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the iPhone 5 direct rival, but it seems that Samsung wants to back up its plan.
Until now, everyone said that Samsung would release the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 at the end of the year. However, since Apple is said to launch its new flagship smartphone in October, it seems like Samsung want to do it at the same time in order to compete head-on with Apple.
According to some industry sources, Samsung is actually developing a smartphone that will feature a display larger than the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, which seems a little exaggerated. Also, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is, in fact, a rehashed version of the Galaxy S3 for which, the company has already started taking pre-orders this very week, and will be delivered in October.
Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will feature an unbreakable plane (UBP) display, which is, in fact, the precursor to the flexible display. This screen is thinner than the standard one which enables the developer to design thinner overall devices as well because there is more room for the application processor and the baseband core chip.
For several months is has been rumored that the Korean company would release a successor for the Galaxy Note. However, the decision to set the release date in October is a recent one and it’s part of the company’s plan for the second half of 2012.
As I mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will feature a larger screen that the 5.3-inch on the current model. Nevertheless, despite the larger display, the device will have a longer battery life. Also, the case is more solid, thus it will be much resistant against possible falls. Its CPU will be quad-core, of course, which will allow multi-tasking at a high speed.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will run the successor of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich meaning Android Jelly Bean. Samsung thinks that if the device would have a new operating system it would be a stronger competitor for Apple’s products.
