Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 Showing its Big Face on August 29th

By Gary Cutlack on at

Samsung's updated Galaxy Note is on the way, with Samsung confirming that its Galaxy Note 2 is scheduled to be the star of its showing at this year's IFA trade show.

As we saw with the amazing amount of fuss generated by the Galaxy S III announcement, Samsung's not actually calling the phone the Galaxy Note 2 yet, instead referring to it as just the "next Galaxy Note" right now. The news comes from Reuters, which quotes a Samsung employee saying: "We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29."

Specs are a little light at the moment, with only some previous speculation regarding the screen size out there at the moment, which claims the Note 2 will be a little larger that the first Note, coming with a 5.5" display running at an impressive 1680×1050 resolution. [Reuters via Android Police]
