With only two weeks left until Samsung’s launch event, which is set to take place in Berlin, Germany, on August 29, we have new details on the upcoming Galaxy Note II super-phone.
The first render
of the smartphone leaked a few days ago, but the source of the leak wasn’t able to confirm the origin of the picture.
However, today we have a new photo showing the alleged Samsung Galaxy Note II, only this time it’s a live picture of the phone.
If we are to compare the two photos, there are many differences, so we’re inclined to believe the press shot of the Galaxy Note II is rather fake.
The new live picture of Galaxy Note II has just been published by the folks over at KnowYourMobile
courtesy of Mr. Blurrycam.
There’s more to it as the picture is accompanied by some of the smartphone’s specs. As expected, Samsung Galaxy Note II will boast a huge 5.5-inch HD capacitive touchscreen display.
In addition, the device will be equipped with a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Although we don’t have confirmations on the CPU, rumor has it that Samsung might include its brand new Exynos 4 Quad chipset.
Last but not least, the Galaxy Note II
will come with the next-generation S-Pen technology, which will probably bring new features and apps.
The phone is said to be released with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, though there’s a slim chance that we will see this one running Jelly Bean at launch.
Anyway, in case the Galaxy Note II will be shipped with Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, Samsung will offer an Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean upgrade in just a few weeks.
Samsung is expected to officially unveil the Galaxy Note II on August 29. The phone will be showcased at IFA 2012 trade fair between August 31 and September 5.
