Rumors escalating on what to expect with the next version of the Galaxy Note.
The Galaxy Note has turned out to be a very popular device, even though Samsung had to create a brand new category for it as the “phablet”. And because of that popularity, Samsung has been working on a successor to the Galaxy Note, which everyone has assumed will be called the Galaxy Note II. That seems to fit the naming conventions being used by Samsung and you only have to look at the Galaxy S3 to see that. The rumors seem to be growing with some predicting that Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note II on August 30th, in Berlin just prior to the start of the IFA 2012 Trade show there.
This date and place is being reported by The Droid Guy as part of the Unpack event. It was a year ago that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note to the world, so this date does has some history behind it. This is all part of growing rumors as to exactly what the Galaxy Note II is going to contain to make it that much better than the Galaxy Note. Finding a rumor is not very difficult.
The biggest one going around right now is the 1280 by 720 screen resolution, though some previous reports had it coming with 1680 by 1050 resolution. Included with this is a narrower 5.5 inch screen which makes the overall size of the device just a little bigger. There is a general assumption that Samsung is going to be delivering the next Note with a quad core processor. That one might be considered a given for the International version since the Galaxy S3 contains a quad core processor.
There are reports that the Galaxy Note II benchmarks have been leaked and if the information which has been leaked is correct, you will see some impressive performance. The camera rumors have been going between 12 mpx and 13 mpx, so either way, you should be able to take some great shots. We can assume that technology in the Galaxy S3 will be provided on the coming Galaxy Note II.
The end of August is not that far away for Samsung to reveal exactly what the Galaxy Note II is going to contain.
