The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be a bit bigger from the first generation as Samsung is moving away from the 5.3 inch display in order to feature a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED screen. You probably won’t notice that the new phablet is much bigger, not because the 0.2 inches are hard to spot, but because the new models will also be slimmer and thinner making less bulky and less “fat” (as many people called it). The logic behind these changes is to make the device more comfortable to hold in one’s hand. The extra 0.2 inches are a nice touch but not so important as other things such as the resolution. There is debate between two possible resolutions and another debate if the Galaxy Note 2 will feature Super AMOLED or Super AMOLED Plus. If you are interested in the full specs list then I suggest you read our page – Galaxy Note 2 specs.
If you are not in the mood to read through all of that then the long story short is that some of the possible specs of the Galaxy Note 2 are:
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS
- A 8 or12 megapixel camera with software similar to the one on the Galaxy S3
- Quadcore processor, possibly running at 1.6 GHz
- 5.5-inch display (1680 x 1050 resolution)
- Super AMOLED display
You can read up on the official Galaxy Note 2 release date if you want to know when to expect the device in stores near you, but the official word is that you can expect the device to be unveiled by the end of August.
Unlike some other devices this one isn’t an Internet hoax and even Samsung has confirmed it is in the making. One of their recent posts to raise the publicity of the Galaxy Note 2 on Twitter was: "Which one of these are you excited about: #GalaxyBeam #GalaxyTab2 #GalaxyNote2 #Poll."
Are you looking forward to a new Galaxy Note device? I know that I certainly am! I just love the chubby phablet!
