Next Samsung Galaxy device expected August 15th (Update: It's not a phone)
Samsung is getting word out that it will be making a major announcement and unveiling its newest Galaxy device on August 15th. Most likely we will see the introduction of the Samsung GALAXY Note II. A sequel to the phablet is expected to feature a slightly larger 5.5 inch WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Super AMOLED display,  an 8MP rear-facing camera, 1.5GB RAM, S Beam, S Voice, NFC, and LTE connectivity. As we reported on Friday, a GLBenchmark test might have revealed an overlclocked quad-core Exynos 4412 for the phablet II. The Samsung GALAXY Note II is allegedly penciled in for an October launch.

Another possibility is a new Samsung GALAXY Tab. The Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is currently under a preliminary injunction and while the Samsung GALAXY 2 (10.1) has been already been launched, most recently in Canada, it might be time for a GALAXY Tab device with a 10 inch screen that might be litigation-proof.

With nearly a month before the announcement, perhaps we will learn more before Samsung removes the wrapping on the next Galaxy branded device. What are you hoping it will be? You can let us know by responding in the box below.

UPDATE
According to Android Authority, the device Samsung will announce is not a phone and they suggest that the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be introduced at a Samsung Unpacked event scheduled close to the opening of this year's IFA conference; in addition, 9to5Google says that because the announcement came from Samsung Electronics America not Samsung Telecommunications America (the division that usually announces phones), we're looking at the launch of a tablet. One guess: The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1.
