Samsung Galaxy Note II with 5.5" AMOLED to be narrower than the Note, release moved to September
A 5.5" AMOLED display has been confirmed for the upcoming Galaxy Note II, according to a tipster, but the device is actually narrower than the current Note, despite the larger viewing estate.
As for specs, it's anyone's guess, but the wishful thinking is an Exynos 5250 ARM Cortex-A15 processor, although Samsung states it made this one for tablets. 2GB of RAM would be expected, considering this thing might come full six months or so after the Galaxy S III announcement, and also having in mind that some Galaxy S III versions carry 2GB of RAM as well.
The source has said that these design cues are taken from the Samsung Galaxy S III, which is a pretty compact device for a 4.8-incher. Of course, we hope that the Note II won't be just a larger S III with a stylus, but will have its distinct personality that made the device so popular, and carved a niche where nobody thought it existed before.

The source chips in on the release date as well - they say the announcement of the Note II has been moved to September instead of October, to give Samsung a head start before the release of the iPhone 5. The sooner, the better, we'd say.
