Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note 2 at another one of its ‘Unpacked’ events, reportedly due to take place on August 30th, sources familiar with matters have revealed.
Previously it was thought the sequel to the huge-selling original Note could land at the IFA expo in Berlin on August 31st. However, Korean site DDaily is now reporting that Samsung has opted to showcase the ‘phablet’ a day sooner at a company-held gathering to give it as much limelight as possible before the chaos kicks off at IFA.
Improvements mooted to be on board are a slightly larger 5.5-inch display with an HD resolution, an Exynos quad-core processor (possibly the same as the newly launched Galaxy S3) and a 12-megapixel camera.
Samsung is also thought to be planning revamped version of the S-Pen, featuring an actual clip that houses both a transmitter and receiver for voice communications, and possibly even a built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) chip.
Elsewhere, the latest Jelly Bean iteration of Android is expected to be baked in, possibly with new additions to the Premium Suite.
We’ll be keeping you abreast of developments in the weeks to come. So stay tuned.
