i think so it is galaxy note 2 with exynos 5250 processor

the next note should have at least a 1080p or a 1440p. 800p is last year's note. --- but this note idea makes sense.
orrr! Asus and Samsung helped each other in making the Nexus Tablet, makes sense since Samsung tablets are not so good in specs (yet) and this may be their entrance.
Google Nexus Transformer Note. Lol.

I was assuming we would see the 5250 in the Note2. Wont be too long now to find out.
The second part didnt make any sense. your saying samsung tablets are not so good in specs, so they should team up with Asus.. while giving Asus their A15 hardware? Asus is like HTC, they just put together components from elsewhere.. Samsung parts are mostly internal designs.

Haha, I was actually dreaming on that one, though it's not impossible that Google chooses two manufacturers.
I actually want Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC to work together on the next Nexus phone - my dream phone.
Samsung makes great hardware, and Asus innovates. That's what, IMO, makes them sell.

I agree with you. Asus does make a better tablet than Samsung, it would be an awesome combination, even though it will never happen. Hey can't fault you for wishful thinking! lol
To me the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be the top shelf phone from Samsung. To me the Samsung Galaxy S III is a disappointment because they STILL can't get an Exynos to play well with LTE in the U.S. You would think Samsung would have learned their lesson for last year’s U.S. imposters of the Samsung Galaxy S II but I guess not.
To me this rumored HTC 5" tablet phone rumored to have a 28nm quad-core S4 Krait with the insanely beastly Adreno 320 & the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with its dual-core Exynos 5250 with the Mali T-604 are the only phones I am looking at this year! Those will be the beast phones for 2012 hands down. Let's see if these phones ever materialize in 2012.

Haha. Although I'm not sure about your decision waiting for those next gen phones, the 5" HTC monster is expected to come with the best specs and Sense 5.0, and the One X just released with Sense 4 = you're going to wait a long long time bro. :)
15. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4628; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
You know what, I am fine on waiting. I can wait until late Q4 or even early Q1 of 2013. I know that is what I want & I am going to enjoy all this time I will have with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
They just released a pre beta ROM for HTC's Sense 4. Also the new rage are these hybrid tablet ROM's. ParanoidAndroid ROM is so freaking sweet.
So there is plenty of ROM's to keep me more than satisfied until those BEAST phones from HTC & Samsung come out. Plus let's not forget my Asus Transformer Prime, there is a lot happening there too.

you can thank Qualcomm for its lock on american LTE for the radio nonsense. They are clutching whatever info on american LTE they can to keep the advantage.
Id love to see a group collaboration for design and parts. None of the manufacturers have it "perfect" yet, as they all hold a piece of the pie.
I doubt we would ever see such coolness, but its nice to dream.. lol
12. bobfreking55 (Posts: 866; Member since: 15 Jul 2011)
i like what you said, they all have the pieces! Samsung and LG has the Screen and Exynos, Motorola has the build, the battery and other stuff while HTC has the best design and lately, the display too. Plus Jellybean! ohhhhhhh. People would be so amazed with this phone and I'm sure the sales would soar high, but the companies won't get too much profit off one phone though. Am I right?
16. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4628; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
I know what you mean, it's like Qualcomm has some special deal or something with U.S. LTE. I just wish we could have a real Samsung Exynos that does work with LTE, not Korean LTE but with U.S. LTE.
Imagine having the ALL STARS of Android all collaborating into the perfect phone or tablet.
Samsung for 1080p Super AMOLED Plus display & processors.
Asus for their innovation like the Transformer series.
HTC’s build quality.
Qualcomm's LTE radios.
Sony's Cybershot camera.
Now Imagine what a sick phone or tablet that would be. lol

I'm tired of Samsung...I want Nexus from HTC!

maybe they should give sony a chance :)
6. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
maybe those manufacturers should win the internal competitions then.
All manufacturers submit designs and ideas to google for the nexus device and then google picks the best one. If samsung keeps winning, its because samsung keeps submitting the best stuff.
14. maxican16 (Posts: 364; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)
it's about more than internal specs. design, radios, and sound quality should all be weighed as well. personally I'd be very surprised if Samsung is awarded the next nexus. I'd love to see some differentiation there.
18. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
they are all weighted. samsung wins. They have the strongest chips, strongest screens, they use the best Audio chips.. the only thing they dont win on is best design.
They send google a full on design and prototype to be handled and judged. dont cry to samsung for continually winning, cry to the other manufacturers for continually losing. I wouldnt mind seeing someone else get it like LG or Moto, but they have to win to get the privilege.
BTW, samsung was already confirmed for the next nexus.. again.
20. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
i love how when people dont have anything of intelligence to say or an actual rebuttal to FACT, they claim "fanboy". There are some real fanboys on this site, go hound them.
25. maxican16 (Posts: 364; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)
hahaha, easy man. I was messing around, hence the wink face. Samsung is not tops in all departments, and it's not all about specs, that's all I was saying. in particular, their radios are not nearly as good as Motorola or HTC, and after all, this is a phone. I love my SGN, but the radio and battery life are very poor... two enormous factors when a customer chooses a phone. chill out.
26. maxican16 (Posts: 364; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)
besides, claiming Samsung is tops in everything as FACT shows me you are indeed a fanboy. sorry, I guess the truth can hurt sometimes.
29. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
The radio in the nexus and the radio in the galaxy 1 and 2 are very different beasts. Dont ask me why, I dont know.. maybe it has something to do with the LTE solution used.. I have a very strong signal in my galaxy and most every customer I know that has an SGS2 comes in bragging that their phone works in places other customer's phones dont.
In general, I do agree, many samsung phones have very weak antennas.
Its not top in all departments, there is no such thing. But they are top in most of the big ones.. power, display, battery life, web optimizing, build quality, drop break resistance, ect. Their designs are OK.. and we already talked about signals.
people like to confuse build quality with materials used.. which are not the same. The galaxy series is one hard to break set of phones, that is quality.
Sorry if i seem agitated. I get sick of people throwing "fanboy" at me every moment that I dont agree with their wrong statments about some brand that THEY hold a little too close.
I owe no allegiance to any brand.
24. Chronos (Posts: 258; Member since: 25 Feb 2012)
I completely agree. The Google Nexus series should be less of differentiating the manufacturers and more on the overall quality of the smartphones. Samsung is at the top when it comes to quality.

Samsung is very good with hardware, but can't say the same for software. Not many want to stick with stock touchwiz. Always need custom rom for better experience. And why the hell galaxy s doesn't get ics??? Only value pack updates? WTF! I'm pissed!!
21. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
That is supposed to change with the SGS3. They got XDA and cyanogen developers on staff now so its supposed to be a top tier performance now. I guess we will find out soon enough.
22. ph00ny (Posts: 665; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Maybe because there is simply not enough room for the s1 and ICS update
Some devs have made similar complaints when the GB roms were released and wasn't too surprising when Samsung announced their stance on ICS and SGS1
30. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
in order for XDA to get ICS on the SGS1 there had to be a secondary page file made for ICS to pull from. It also gives it an inherent limitation on the number of apps you can have on your phone and will crash and burn if you try to exceed it.
That might have a little something to do with why samsung didnt update the SGS1.
Of course, it could just be because most SGS1 owners are close to upgrade and they want them to get the SGS3.. pick your theory.

Exynos 5x with SA Plus...think of next galaxy note.
27. x7black7x (Posts: 118; Member since: 19 Feb 2012)
dont know why but the nexus series is not the android flagship cause the last nexus was not as good as gs2 when gs2 got an update to ics
28. medicci37 (Posts: 971; Member since: 19 Nov 2011)
I would like 2 see the 5250 on the Note2. But since Samsung said it will be used on tabs at first. & Even though the screen is 5.3, I think Samsung still considers the Note a phone. Hope Samsung isn't going to waste the 5250 by using it in another 1280 × 800 tab.
