Note-worthy rumour: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to be unveiled at IFA 2012 in August?
If you’re in the ‘bigger is beautiful’ camp when it comes to mobile phones, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to be unveiled in late August at the IFA consumers electronics show in Germany.
MK Business News heard through a ‘source familiar with the matter’ that version two of the less-than-titular handset will be released in October this year and will, as expected, run the latest version of Android OS — 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Apparently the Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch display, although it’s not expected to feature Samsung’s unbreakable plane display (UBP) technology, which will likely be reserved for a high profile product in the future.
Despite the enlarged screen, which is .2 of an inch bigger than its predecessor, the size of the actual handset itself will remain similar to the original note — something of a relief — it must be said.
It’s also reasonable to expect a beefed up quad-core processor — possibly the Exynos 4 Quad found in the Galaxy S3 – and the camera could see a boost from 12-MP to 13-MP.
If these reports are true, Samsung will need to find some more musicians from Shoreditch to star in their uber-hip advertisements.
