Samsung has released a teaser video of its next-generation smartphone/tablet hybrid device, the Galaxy Note 2, to confirm its launch at IFA 2012 in Berlin next week.
While the Korean tech giant has yet to announce officially the upcoming launch of the Galaxy Note 2 during the IFA conference, the 38-second video clip follows popular German film director Wim Wenders as he discusses when “magical moments come alive”. In between his talks were close-up shots of the Samsung S-pen, a stylus used as the main tool for writing and drawing on the first Galaxy Note.
“On August 29 Berlin, your magic moments will come alive,” reads a statement right before the short teaser ends, which falls on the same date and place that this year’s IFA will take place.
Apart from that, the original Galaxy Note launched at last year’s IFA conference, so it is only fitting that the second-generation Note to appear during the event.
As if that isn’t enough evidence, a Samsung representative reportedly told Reuters two weeks ago, “We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29.”
Samsung, however, remains tight-lipped on the specification of the Galaxy Note 2. Rumors say that it will come with a 5.5-inch Super HD AMOLED touchscreen, a faster CPU than the Galaxy S3, preloaded Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the latest Samsung TouchWiz UI.
