The original Samsung Galaxy Note (pictured above) was one of the surprise hits of 2011 and its hybrid screen-size has had a long lasting effect on the whole smartphone market with the average smartphone screen-size increasing all the time.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 expected to be unveiled later this year we thought it was a good time to go over what we know about Samsung's device so far.
Even Larger Touch-Screen ?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looks set to have an even larger touch-screen than the Galaxy Note's 5.3 inch display. The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to have a 5.5 inch display, which is a natural response to the demand for larger screens that is influencing the whole mobile industry.
Android Jelly Bean ?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to ship running on Android Jelly Bean, which is the latest and greatest version of Google's operating system. The Note 2 will therefore come with support for Google Now, an improved version of the Chrome browser, improve widget management and much more.
Stunning 12 Mega-pixel camera ?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also thought to have an amazing 12 mega-pixel camera, which will be capable of recording full 1080p video and amazing still pictures. This is a real improvement over the 8 mega-pixel snapper featured on the original Galaxy Note.
When will the Galaxy Note 2 Launch ?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is rumoured to be unveiled on August 15th in the US according to rumours reported by MKNews. If this does prove correct then we can expect the Galaxy Note 2 to be available to buy in September or October.
