Tweet from Samsung Mobile Arabia hints at Samsung GALAXY Note II
mentions how the Samsung GALAXY Note II will come with a 5.4 inch plastic substrate OLED display instead of glass to make the screen flexible. The rumor also mentions a 12MP camera, but again, this is just wild speculation. Another rumor has the Samsung GALAXY Note II coming to market with a 5.5 inch WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Super AMOLED display, Samsung Exynos 5250 processor, an 8MP camera, 1.5GB of RAM, S Beam, S Voice, NFC, and LTE connectivity. These particular specs came from a trusted source for UbuntuLife.net and as we already had told you, the source expects the device to launch this October.
Of course, all of the speculation about a sequel to the Samsung GALAXY Note means absolutely nothing if there is no second phablet on the way. But we might actually have seen the first sign that Samsung does indeed to produce a follow-up model to the GALAXY Note. A tweet from Samsung Mobile Arabia polls readers about which of three models are they looking forward to the most, the Samsung Galaxy Beam, the Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 or the Samsung GALAXY Note II. While this is far from an announcement or introduction of the model, the region was among the first to get the Samsung Galaxy S III and as such,might be well connected to the thinking of the powers that be at Samsung. Since the original Samsung GALAXY Note was introduced at last year's IFA in Berlin it is expected that the sequel will be introduced at this year's IFA.

Bring it on! Id prefer to see a 5.5" screen, sense 5.4 just seems pointless, but as long as theres a sequel, I'm looking forward to it. But i hope they hurry, cause i may end up with a WP8 device instead.

I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung didn't launch the Note 2 along with a Note sized WP8 phone.
Back in April/May, there were rumors that Samsung was holding off on WP7.5 with plans for a Note sized WP8 phone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running ICS or Jelly Bean and Samsung Focus Journal running WP8. What a nice dream I'm in right now...

From what i am seeing that dude is just randomly typing
We all know that Note 2 will come sooner or later anyway

Another awesome phablet coming soon, I can tell. Hopefully Samsung will fix the slight lag problem (which never occurs anymore on most high-end Android devices these days) that was on the original G-Note.

Or maybe just a quad-core processor... We just got into 2 GB RAM territory, no need to be asking for double that so soon

It helps with multi-tasking, or that's what I was lead to believe

It helps with the background processes, keeping more of them active, but not necessarily a speed boost. The U.S. S3 gets hammered in most benchmarks by the international because the 2GB RAM addition was a cheap afterthought to help the value proposition, but not real performance.

I totally dig the note and love it for what it is. However, the note is just not for me. I appreciate a slightly smaller handset. But boy do I look forward to seeing what they do as a follow up to both the Note and the SGS3

Maybe THIS will be the Samsung device to get in 2012, because the SGSIII certainly isn't with it's dim screen, flimsy plastic build, and old/dated GPU.

Do you know that Adreno 225 is also an overclocked version (and added some small features) of Adreno 220?
27. Hemlocke (unregistered)
Yes, hence my response. After owning an international, I would never think about the U.S. model.

I really dont see how a flexible screen would be a good idea
13. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3642; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Well, in concept phones, not just the screen was flexible, but the entire phone. So you could wrap it around your hand to use it as a watch, bend parts of it to use as a kickstand while watching videos, etc. But if only the screen is flexible... I guess it wouldn't break (as much)?

i think its galaxy tab 10.1 called note2 .........
16. hung2900 (Posts: 711; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
No. Each screen size is a seperated area. Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2011) was rumored to be the Galaxy Tab 2, but it is still Galaxy Tab 10.1.

it is funny how we are always the first to receive new phones in the world (including the S3 and the pureview), but we are the last to receive updates (ICS on SII is not out yet)

then it will be plastic all along of the whole phone.
