A lot of people were surprised at the sleeper-hit success of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The oversized, 5.3″-screened ‘phablet’ has been steadily raking in around a million sales a month for Samsung since its release, and it’s little surprise that the grapevine has for some time now been murmuring about a sequel.
The latest news to emerge from Korean news network MK is that Samsung are aiming to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 in Berlin at the 2012 IFA conference. The conference is set to be held on 31 August.
Exact details on the Note 2 are hazy, though it’s thought that it will feature a larger 5.5″ screen (is that really necessary?), an Exynos quad-core processor, and possibly a 12 or 13MP camera. Below is what MK had to say on the eagerly-anticipated phablet:
“There are also talks of improving the camera resolution to 12.0 or 13.0 megapixels, up from current 8.0 megapixels, but this may be changed depending on other factors. It will not, however, showcase the unbreakable plane (UBP) display technology, a precursor to the flexible display. UBP will most likely be applied for the next product released after Galaxy Note 2.”
