PhoneArena needs to stop making articles about this phone because we dont know if these images are REAL or not. Lets wait until The end of the month to see the REAL thing. im as anxious as the next 3+ million people, but we'll see what it looks like and when it'll hit the US

They get ad revenue when they post these articles and people click on them. They won't stop.

You got fooled, PA. The guy on twitter even says that this is a mockup.

technically it looks to be nearly Identical to that fake "photo" that was put up earlier. They are probably related.

They even have the exact same "shading" for the bezel lines. My guess.. same artist, same base photo, different backgrounds.

i dont get the fascination with these things. I much prefer my S3. This thing is too big for a phone and too small for a tablet.

Hence the concept of CHOICE.. I don't get why you'd want the S3 when this beast is lurking around the corner! :P

The S3 works for you.. the Note will work beautifully for ME. See.. we can co-exist under such circumstances!

Yeah, I thought the same things about the big display devices myself... but then a friend of mine overseas got the precursor to the the first Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Player, before I'd ever even heard about it over here in the US and even being diminutive of size did nothing but rave about it.
I tried out the Note when it released here in-store and I have to admit, it swung my vote.

The quad Exynos isn't compatible with US LTE.

Well considering I don't have LTE in my area, and probably won't for a while, I'd take the quad-core Exynos with HSPA+ over the S4 with LTE. More power and better battery life, who can complain?

I have the international version, and Exynos is better than S4!

Samsung spent $822 millions on new R&D headquarter, we will see better products in next few years. This year Samsung spent $20 billions on building new plants.

Wishing and my blessings are upon, good luck!
For it was for Samsung and HTC that pushed the boundaries on
high specs. And SONY for designs! & Apple for feel and touch of the phone. NOKIA what can say......

They have no problem with spec. Just the design...

I totally agree, if only they started to use materials like HTC does,

As a person who left Verizon after being a long time customer just to get a Note and jumping on to AT&T for one, bring on Note 2, cause i'll pay the price if samsung does it right! I can't go back to less then 5'' screens now, its just too "inconvienent"

Haters for whatever reasons can enjoy their narrow minded lifestyles with their 4'' screens, the rest of us have moved onto something greater and bigger then you can imagine.

As for the whiners about "not being able to pocket a Note" Maybe if you didn't wear tight ass emo jeans and or butt tight spandex outfits, you could actually pocket a Note but you have other issues beyond that for wearing that type of clothing anyway....

it looks like a nice phone! but lets not get our hopes up about the specs.
we dont know what the U.S version will be packing. i love my siii but the
quad core exynos would have been nice. i had the original note and
loved that too. at&t jusy sucks where im at.

All this needs for me is a huge battery. Bigger than the Razr Maxx. My upgrade was a week ago and I waited for this for the new iPhone. Better be worth it. And it does look ugly.
