It had been rumored that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would feature a display screen that is larger than the current 5.3-inch offering that is available now. Now, we’re hearing that Samsung will up their display screen to an impressive 5.5-inches when the device goes on sale later this year.
Just like the iPhone 5, there is no official news on the highly anticipated device, but like Apple’s device whispers are emerging that October is going to be the month when the Galaxy Note 2 will go on sale. Fortunately, it looks like we may be getting an early glimpse at the device next month though, if recent reports are to be believed.
The MK Business News publication in Korea has said that the Galaxy Note 2 will be on show at the IFA Trade show, which starts in August next month in Berlin. If that is the case, then we’d expect a lot more leaks to surface until IFA 2012 takes place, as the Note 2 seems to have gone under the radar somewhat, especially given the monster specs that the device may feature.
Everyone is expecting the iPhone 5 to take all of the limelight in October, but if the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 does come to market with a quad-core processor, a 13 megapixel camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, then that is going to be some very healthy competition indeed.
After much consumer skepticism on whether Samsung’s hybrid device would sell, it turns out that many consumers really do enjoy a bigger screen as possible. 5.5-inches is absolutely huge in our opinion though – would you have no problems forking out for the Galaxy Note 2 with these attached specs? Let’s hope we have some more info soon.
