Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note II front panel poses for the camera, again with a 5.5-inch screen
Does this give it any more credibility than the image we saw leak yesterday? It's clear that the two are completely different. On yesterday's image the Galaxy Note II is depicted as having a rounded home key while here the rectangular button from the original remains. A ruler measuring just 5.5 inches on the diagonal proves that the screen would be slightly bigger on the new Note.
Also, we are looking at a very squarish device, with none of those rounded corners seen on the SGS III. Would it really look like that? You'd need to wait exactly two more weeks, bombarded with all these juicy rumors. Come to think of it, it's not that much, right?

at least this does not look like it is inspired by the GSIII

most likely a fake, the ruler looks like the ruler on the nokia leak too.
just saying. that shape is just not Samsung's shape, sorry to disappoint you but the note ii will be probably like a pebble too.

Yeah, It looks like it wasn't inspired by the galaxy s3 but more like the 2012 galaxy r that was sold only on korea (the home button looks identical)-http://www.samsung.com/sec/consumer/mobile-phone/mobile-phone/kt/SHV-E170KMAKC

I wonder how it access Google now by using physical button

to access google now on the galaxy nexus is just swiping from the bottom. it will most probably be the same

No must press and hold the home button then swipe it up after a Google button came up on top

im glad that the note have such buttons cuz u can wake up the device better!

I'm glad they're using the traditional setup instead of onscreen buttons. Not only is it easy to hit the onscreen button during app usage, it takes up screen real estate. I would rather use the full screen

There's no way it will be squared. That goes against Samsung's new Natural and Human design scheme.
3. bobfreking55 (Posts: 866; Member since: 15 Jul 2011)
it looks like a fat Xperia Arc... I wonder how will this look like, or is Samsung using shells again to hide the design?

I prefer the physical home buttons to get more of that 5.5 inches of screen estate and also to turn on the screen from sleep faster than using the power button. I like this better than that image yesterday which is just a stretched out S3 = ugly. Now, where are those specs...

Can't agree more. If a bezel less phone is not possible yet, and if you can't replace the thick bezel at the bottom with a longer screen like all those phone currently in the market with on screen buttons, what is the stupid reason to remove the physical button and make the usable screen smaller?

i can only hope it ends up on verizon quickly and i can save up the 7ish hundred dollars to buy one when it does.

Not too bad looking...
But I hope we will have a polycarbonate body to go with it.

either way, this will be one of the best mobile phones out there. im getting either this or the original Note. my only question is when will this phone be available??
Will Samsung make the debut of the international and US versions at the same time or delay them like the original Note was?

This is huge news...
If you take two Galaxy notes,
Attach one to the bottom of each foot,
You can water ski with them

According to this photo length and width should be 148.3 X 76.8mm. The original Note was 146.9 X 83mm. Great!

who knows this may not be note ii at all and maybe a nokia 5.5 incher....
well that's what can be speculated from chris Webber's tweet
