Another Samsung GALAXY Note II leak, the second of the day, appears to be the real deal

If the picture is genuine, it certainly looks like Samsung has taken design cues for the son of phablet from the Samsung Galaxy S III. The square corners are gone, replaced by softer rounded edges and a camera/speaker placement that copies the hottest phone on the planet. It looks as though the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be available in marble white only. The screen is supposed to measure up at 5.5 inches, slightly larger than the 5.3 inch display on the original version. There is also a slot for the S-Pen.
The Samsung GALAXY Note II is expected to be introduced August 29th at a Samsung pre-IFA event.

UPDATE: Apparently, we got our hopes up too high as it turns out that this photo is not the Samsung GALAXY Note II. This photo is merely a concept that was sent out by artist Daniel UY via Twitter on Thursday.

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

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.
