The leak comes via the South Korean press, the Seoul Newspaper specifically, and was highlighted by Play Infinite in a YouTube video clip.
Apparently the Galaxy Note 2 will feature a larger 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, and a 1.4GHz quad core Exynos CPU. An 8 megapixel camera is the main snapper (not 12 megapixels as some previous rumours had indicated), and storage will be 16 or 32GB.
The device will support 4G LTE in appropriate markets where it’s available, and the phone will run the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean.
The one slight disappointment for some is that while the screen size has been upped by a fifth of an inch, the resolution on the Note 2 remains the same as the original Note. So that means a slightly less detailed image from the display.
The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to be unveiled tomorrow, according to rumours; and bear in mind, this – and the tech spec – is all just speculation.
It certainly sounds about right, though.
Samsung is hoping that the Note 2 “phablet” (phone/tablet) will take some of the wind out of Apple’s sails, as it prepares to launch the new iPhone very shortly.
