In case you’re on the lookout for a phablet, the Galaxy Note is pretty much your only viable option right now. You could however wait for the LG Optimus VU to make its debut outside of Korea as the handset in question is expected to hit the US market via Verizon by the end of summer.
However, if what we’ve heard lately, concerning what’s happening in Samsung’s backyard, it’s really true then, by the end of the year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might be available for purchase. We haven’t heard much (we’re of course talking about official info) about this fabled device, but we kept our eyes peeled for any new information regarding the matter.
Sure enough, the process paid off and now it appears that the Note 2 might’ve poked its head out once again. Check back after the break for details.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
According to the latest rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might pack beefier specs than expected. Apparently, new information regarding the phablet’s specifications has been revealed on the GLBenchmarks website. Unfortunately, the info was out there only for a brief period of time, after which it was pulled. We’re not sure why this happened, and it might mean that the information was taken down for not being legit.
Nevertheless, the info indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 could bear the model number GT-N100 and that it might come with a slightly larger 5.5 inch screen with a resolution of 720p. More importantly, it allegedly packs a quad-core Exynos 8 chip, same as the Samsung Galaxy S3, but this time it has been clocked to run at 1.6 GHz.
To be honest, this new info doesn’t sound too far-fetched and that’s why we’re considering the possibility that it can be valid. When we’ll find out for sure we can’t say exactly, but Samsung did announce that on August 15 they will unveil the new “Galaxy” device. Whether or not they’re preparing to make the Note 2 public it remains to be seen but we heard some rumors claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date is scheduled for sometime in late August/early September. We’ll keep you posted.
Thanks PocketNow for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
