Lots of rumors surrounding the upcoming sequel to Samsung Galaxy Note have been making headlines in the past few weeks.
Only two days remain until Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 “phablet,” but rumors continue to surface online.
The latest details on the Galaxy Note 2
come from Korean publication Seoul Newspaper
, which posted an official specs sheet of the smartphone.
Although what the folks at Seoul Newspaper claim to be the Galaxy Note 2 specs sheet seem to be incomplete, it does confirm some of the rumors on the phone’s hardware.
For example, according to this document, the Galaxy Note 2 will be powered by a Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, which is likely to be complemented by a Mali-400 MP graphics processing unit.
Moreover, the smartphone will boast a huge 5.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display with support for HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution and 16 million colors.
The good news is that Samsung decided to go for Android 4.1
Jelly Bean operating system, instead of the previous Ice Cream Sandwich version.
Even though previous rumors suggested that Galaxy Note 2 might come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform out of the box, it looks like Samsung thought otherwise.
Furthermore, the smartphone will boast an 8-megapixel rear photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as front-facing camera for video calls.
Two models will be available on the market, so customers will be able to choose the 16GB version or the 32GB variant, though we’re not sure whether both will be launched at the same time. Last but not least, the phone will come with LTE support.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any details on the superphone’s availability, though Samsung might want to make the Galaxy Note 2 available on the market ahead of iPhone 5’s release.
