Samsung Galaxy Note 2 All Set for October 2012 Launch?

The next iteration of the [easyazon-link asin=”B0061YRDX6″ locale=”us”]Samsung Galaxy Note[/easyazon-link] could arrive this coming October. When the original Samsung Galaxy Note was released, its success mostly dependent on how it was able to create its own niche: the phablet, or the phone-tablet hybrid.

Despite the fact that viewing content on a 5.3-inch display is not as enjoyable as doing so on a 9.7-inch screen, many appreciated the portability of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The stylus, in addition, was a bonus, since it allowed users to explore new functionalities in some apps built precisely for the input device. Now, as rumors of a sequel device float around, it seems that Samsung has to think of new ways to please consumers, especially as new devices flood the electronics market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 allegedly will have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with WSXGA+ resolution at 1680 x 1050 pixels and Gorilla Glass protection. The size makes it 0.2 inch bigger than the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note display. This could be a response to complaints that the screen is too small to enjoy the stylus-based apps. Its hardware inside would probably be a 1.5 quad-core GHz processor, like what is found on the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Huawei Ascend P1, and the HTC One X. However, some still suggest that a dual-core processor might be down for the Galaxy Note 2. This CPU will also come with 1.5 to 2 GB of RAM. An Exynos 5250 chipset is also possible, along with 4G connectivity. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is also expected.

As for the camera, an eight megapixel camera with a better lens and an enhanced image sensor for higher-quality photos should be appropriate for the Galaxy Note 2. Naturally, the stylus will also be retained as one of the signature features of the Galaxy Note. The recently released Samsung Galaxy SIII might, in addition, share some features with this upcoming device, including NFC, SmartStay, S Voice and S Beam.

The fall release of the new Samsung Galaxy Note would mark a year after the original was released. Still, Samsung has not made any official announcement regarding the matter.

  1. Yes all carriers pls if you want to compete with Apple you need all carriers after all you can’t beat them on just on one carrier the iphone5 will be on all carrirers

  2. considering the Note was only available in the US on ATT so far I think the success is pretty good. I know I’ve been waiting for it to be available on Verizon as a lot of others are. I’m sure it’s the same on the other major carriers. Hopefully the Note 2 will not be locked into just one carrier. I hate the exclusives. I love that the S 3 is coming to all at the same time. As it should be.

  3. All this is well and good, but we hope that they have a better screen, Full HD, like on the new LG screen, full 1920 x 1080 in and OLED, but NOT Pentile. And, completely water-proof and drop-proof, as well.

    We would also like to see them make their screen truly superambiphobic (that is: VERY water (hydrophobic) and oil (oleophobic) repellant, to cut down on smudges and fingerprints).

    A superambiphobic screen is able to keeping itself completely clean of smudges, smears, water spots, oil stains, fingerprints, etc. Lets get it on, Samsung!

    It should also try to make itself a bit more future-proof. 2GB of RAM is an absolute MINIMUM!

    Then, bring it to all carriers, as you did with the S III. Then, of course, you can make it a Nexus device, to avoid bloatware and speed up updates.

    NOW you are getting somewhere.
