Samsung is rumored to uncover the next generation Galaxy Note on August this year. After having sold more than 5 million first generation Galaxy Notes, and overpassing giggles regarding the S-pen stylus, Samsung Electronics is ready for good news. Allegedly, the new device will be unveiled during the electronic show for consumers in Berlin, Germany – the IFA 2012.
The Galaxy Note 2 is anticipated to run on 4.1 Jelly Bean Android software, which is different from what the current Galaxy Note is using right now: Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It will also come with a 5.5 inch diagonal screen, which makes it slightly bigger than the first generation note.
Samsung Galaxy Note has been referred to as a “phablet” by ABI Research – a phone and a tablet in one. ABI predicts global shipment of Galaxy Note 2 will reach 208 million in 2015.
Additional speculations of the second generation Galaxy Note include 12.0 or 13.0 megapixel camera and a quad-core processor. Meanwhile, an unidentified reliable source denied that Galaxy Note 2 will feature the UBP(Un-Breakable Plane) display technology.
Steve Jobs has famously made fun of Samsung’s idea of using a stylus for screen interaction. However, the company has made the necessary steps to create a less cumbersome S-pen, particularly by establishing a partnership with Wacom Co Ltd of Japan, which specializes in digital pen technology.
