According to Slashgear, a Seoul newspaper has jumped the gun slightly early ahead of the August 29th Launch at IFA in Germany and leaked the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Apparently it will have:

  • a 5.5″ Super 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display,
  • 1.4GHz Quad-Core Exynos 4412 CPU,
  • 3G/4G — the precise 4G Bands are not known so we don’t know if it will be compatible with the Telstra 4G network here,
  • 8MP camera,
  • Android 4.1(Jelly Bean), and
  • 16 or 32GB internal storage.

Sounds like a pretty sweet piece of hardware with the Wacom stylus and digitizer on-board. Just a couple of days till the announcement — the Samsung event is scheduled to take place on the 29th of August at 7pm in Berlin which is 3am AEST on the 30th of August. It will also be live-streamed on the SamsungMobile Facebook page so you can tune in if you wish.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Looking forward for another price drop on the Note One on Kogan….

Valued Guest

the note 1 has 1280×800 display.. why the drop?

1280×720 is 780p resolution. I guess it’s a more standardised resolution
to have. Playing HD video will not result in any black bars or
stretching content when played on the GN2. I imagine the next generation
of devices will be looking to aim for 1920 × 1080… no prizes for guessing what that is 😉

Looks like a Galaxy S 3 with a 5.5″ screen. I wonder if there are any subtle changes that a spec sheet doesn’t list.
