Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specifications leak ahead of official announcement
Specifications and images of the upcoming Samsung device, Galaxy Note 2, have allegedly leaked online ahead of the official announcement.
A Korean News Daily has published what it claims to be the specifications and images of the phablet. According to the Korean paper, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7 100 sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display display with a 1280x720 pixel resolution. The device comes with 3G/4G connectivity and a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor. Interestingly, the device is tipped to run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, not the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system as rumoured earlier.
The leaked spec sheet reveals the Galaxy Note 2 also has an 8MP camera with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. It is being speculated that Samsung's flexible screen technology could play a role in the Galaxy Note, making it easier to fit it in a pocket. The Galaxy Note 2 is supposed to come with the new virtual assistant service S-Voice and a revamped TouchWiz user interface.
Another round of leak suggests the Galaxy Note 2 will be available in two colours, one of which is Ceramic White, while the other one is still unknown.
The fresh leaked specifications of the Galaxy Note 2 aren't surprising, given the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the previous rumours for the device. Earlier it was rumoured that the phablet would come with a dual-core processor and offer a screen resolution of 1680x1050-pixels.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is likely to be pitted against phones with larger screens such as the LG Optimus Vu.
Samsung is due to unveil the device at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event at IFA in Berlin on 29 August.
