Recently, information appeared in the press about the plans of the South Korean company Samsung to present to the public the next generation of the popular Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone tablet. According to rumors, the release of the new mobile device is scheduled for August 15, 2012 during some special event.
Unlike its 5.3-inch predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is expected to sport a slimmer, more elongated design with a 5.5-inch touchscreen.
How an ordinary person will use this new device is anyone's guess (after all, not every person goes to work in trousers with large pockets), but the Korean manufacturer is clearly confident that there are users who like something in between a large smartphone and a small tablet.
Samsung's press service added fuel to the fire, saying that Samsung Electronics America has prepared a surprise for fans of Korean gadgets - a discovery and announcement of the latest devices.
From a press notice:
It is expected that it will be during this event that the Samsung Galaxy Note II, equipped with a 1.6 GHz 4-core Exynos processor, will be announced. According to some sources, the screen of the device will increase to 5.5 inches, but the resolution will remain the same - 1280 by 720 pixels. It is possible that the new smartphone will run on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich platform, and, as an option, provide for the upgrade to 4.1. Jellybean.
This is how a person making a call using a Samsung Galaxy Note looks like:
If the information is still confirmed, then it will be possible to see the long-awaited smartphone-tablet 2 weeks earlier than previously expected.
