Samsung’s second-generation Galaxy Note has been the subject of rumors and speculation for a number of weeks now, but it may not be long before the Korean company makes the handset official. According to one report, the “phablet” will get its grand unveiling as soon as next month.
Sources for MK Business News claim that the Galaxy Note II will be unveiled at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin in August. They also claim the device will get an even bigger 5.5-inch display — up from 5.3-inches in the original Galaxy Note — which is what we’ve heard from previous reports, and that the device will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed.
It won’t have Samsung’s unbreakable plane display (UBP) technology, however; this is reportedly being saved for a new handset that will launch after the new Note.
Although the report doesn’t mention any other specifications, it is believed the Galaxy Note II may also boast a quad-core processor, and a 12-megapixel camera. In comparison, its predecessor packs a 1.4GHz dual-core chip, and an 8-megapixel camera.
