Samsung Galaxy Note II rumoured for October
20 Jun 2012
New smartphone planned to take on iPhone 5
The Galaxy Note has certainly been a popular launch for Samsung, shifting well in excess of five million units since its launch last October. So it makes a lot of sense for the company to produce the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
According to the latest rumours, Samsung will be doing just that, producing a new phone for October, with the aim of going up against the iPhone 5. OK, no one is quite sure when the new iPhone will land, but most people are expecting Apple's latest smartphone around that date.
To tempt you away from Apple, Samsung is producing another phone-meets-tablet (or phablet) with the big selling point of an 'unbreakable plane display' (UBP). The display is said to be a precursor to flexible display technology, allowing for a thinner design without losing anything hardware-wise.
In fact, inside you'll probably find a quad-core processor, a 12-megapixel camera, and improved battery life, along with a 'sturdier build' than the original model. As for that screen, an addition rumour claims it could be even larger than the current 5.3-inch model. With tablets kicking in at seven-inches, there's not a lot of room for Samsung to play with and still call the Galaxy Note a smartphone. But it will certainly be interesting to see just how far they can push it.
More on this to come over the next few months, thats for sure.
