Samsung Galaxy Note II image leaks, Jelly Bean coming to Galaxy S III on August 29th?

Samsung Galaxy Note II image leaks, Jelly Bean coming to Galaxy S III on August 29th?
The Samsung Galaxy Note II will get unveiled in a mere two weeks on August 29th, but Samsung might have just failed keeping it a secret. This image is allegedly showing what the upcoming Galaxy Note II will look like - a huge white slab looking almost identical to the original Note except for the big curvy physical home key at the center bottom.

What you’re seeing below is allegedly the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The tipster who provided the image to GSM Arena also says the device will not feature a 1080p display (as it’s too power and resource-hungry), but rather go for a slightly larger, 5.5-inch 1280 x 800-pixel Super AMOLED screen. Good news is that it will use a regular RGB matrix, rather than PenTile, which in simpler turns means more subpixels and better image quality.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II will also expected to be powered by a Samsung Exynos 4 Quad chip with each of the four cores clocked at 1.5GHz. The rear camera will be an 8-megapixel one, the same as the camera on the Galaxy S III.

Now, the not so good news is that the Note II will likely launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung might still put Jelly Bean on it but chances are slim, and it’s more likely that a future update will bring the G Note II Android version up.

That’s not the only Samsung news, though. Best of all, the Samsung Galaxy S III is allegedly getting an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on August 29th. The big news will be announced at the event the Koreans have scheduled for the Galaxy Note II launch. Keep your fingers crossed that all of this is true, and let us know how do you like that gorgeous new Note!
