Samsung could be about to unveil new additions to its Note-branded range of tablets and slate-smartphone hybrids, reports suggest.
The handset-maker has sent out invites to a press call on August 15th, which we’re told will be marked by the "unveiling of the latest Galaxy device". It had previously been thought that Sammy would unveil the Note 2 at the IFA expo at the end of next month.
Alas, unlike other invites which often contain some kind of visual clues, there’s no indication what that might be. But the smart money must surely be on either the successor to the five-million selling Note phablet or the decidedly less keenly anticipated Note 10.1 - a much more conventional tablet.
Assuming it’s the former, rumours suggest we’re in for a real treat, with the Note 2 purported to feature a slightly larger 5.5-inch touchscreen and – here’s the real sweetner – a revamped, rethought version of the S-Pen stylus that features a transmitter and receiver for voice communications, and possibly even a built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) chip.
S-Pen support is also expected to feature front and centre with the Note 10.1 to underscore its appeal to enterprise users, as well as a 1.4GHz dual core processor, Android v4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) and 3G support.
