Galaxy Note II specs leak, 1.4GHz quad-core and Jelly Bean in tow?
A Korean newspaper claims to have gotten the goods on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note II, including a screen grab and a bevy of specs for the upcoming phablet. Among the surprises are that it will be sporting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, making it perhaps the first non-Nexus device to ship with Android’s latest and greatest.

Other specifications include a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 CPU, a 1280 x 720 resolution Super AMOLED panel for the 5.5” screen, and an 8 MP rear shooter. For internal storage the device reportedly comes in 16 and 32GB flavors. The edges have supposedly been rounded off a bit, and as we reported earlier, it may ship in some new colors.

The article also indicates the device will come with “3G/4G” radios, although that raises an interesting question about U.S. versions – so far all LTE devices for the U.S. of A. that had quad-core international versions have made it to America’s shores with the dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip instead. Will this be the device that breaks this pattern, or will the U.S. once again get the (still very capable) S4 inside of their phablets?

There’s no saying right now, and it’s possible that these specs may turn out to be wrong – we should know the whole story after Samsung’s Unpacked event this Wednesday.
