While most smartphone manufacturers have made a change for larger screen with ever growing resolution, Samsung has jumped the gradual increase stage and went straight for a humongous smartphone or a small tablet. Either way, the device has been deemed by the general public pocket able, and it seems like was the key behind its success. You might have guessed by now that we are talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note, and its marvelous yet slightly odd 5.3 inches wide HD screen. The numbers behind this phoneblet, half smartphone and half tablet led to its selling figure of 7 million devices worldwide.
Word has it that Samsung is already working hard on the successor of the Galaxy Note, which judging by Samsung’s naming convention should be none other than the Galaxy Note 2. If you recall, the original Galaxy Note begun its career in October 2011, and it seems like Samsung wants to launch its sequel exactly one year after. If things go according to plan, we should be seeing the next phoneblet in line from Samsung in October 2012.
As far as the presumed design of the Galaxy Note 2, we have found this mockup that might just tell the true story if the Korean giant applies the same design as it did for its original Note and its Galaxy S II:
On the hardware side, it looks like Samsung is going all out for this device. We do advise you to take the following lines with a pinch of salt, as they may end up to be nothing more than rumors. As far as word has it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will pack a 5.5 inches wide Super AMOLED display of WSXGA+ resolution, which accounts for the mind boggling 1680 x 1050 number of pixels.
The rumor mill goes as far as to attribute a better sensor for the 8 MP camera of the Galaxy Note 2 and no less than 1.5 GB of RAM, which would be an odd value indeed. Perhaps the wildest guess so far is that the Galaxy Note 2 will come with a dual core ARM 15 processor, which also packs LTE connectivity, which would come standard for the international version of the device.
So far, this is all the information we could gather about the upcoming device, but as time will pass by I am sure that Samsung will begin to shed more details about its upcoming flagship so stay tuned for more news.
