Rumor Roundup: Samsung GALAXY Note II

This is the rumor roundup of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Rumor is, that the design of the new Galaxy Note II will be very familiar to the Samsung Galaxy S III. Note II might just eventually be a larger Galaxy S III. Last year, Samsung changed some minor design elements of the previous Galaxy Note for the U.S. market but it looks like that it’s not the case this time. Samsung will be keeping the Galaxy Note II’s design exactly the same for their U.S. market and their International market, just like what they did with the Galaxy S III.

Three days ago a retailer sent us an image of their database. According to the retailer’s database we can see that the Galaxy Note II will be available in 2 colors, Ceramic White and the other color is still yet TBD  (To-Be-Determined).

Now let’s talk about the specifications of the device. Recently, an image of a benchmark test was leaked on the internet which indicates the Galaxy Note II having a Quad-Core processor running at 1.6GHz (That’s a 200MHz speed jump from the Galaxy S III) and having a 720p display with 16:9 aspect ratio.

So, We think Samsung’s latest GALAXY device will have the following specifications:

  • 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 1280×720 resolution (720p – 16:9)
  • Exynos 4412 Quad-Core CPU @ 1.6GHz
  • Mali-400MP Quad-Core GPU @ 400MHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8MP Rear Camera + 1.9 MP Front Camera
  • 3G (GT-N7100) and 4G LTE (GT-N7105) Models
  • 16GB and 32 GB internal storage capacity options (Expandable via MicroSD)
  • Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box

Samsung is going to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note II later today at their Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 event in Berlin. So, soon we will know if any of these rumors are actually true or not.

Um some of you guys are missing the point. Narrower screen ratio is bad for writing

1280×800 res >>>>>>>>>>>>> 1280 x 720

lol cant believe people are complaining about 720p…honestly unless you have your eyes cm’s away from the screen you will not see pixels…also 1080p will just drain the battery even more…we just started to get phones that are able to last a day.put in a 1080p screen and you will be lucky to get through half a day…

Ok so maybe I missed that announcement however I was pretty accurate on the others, and I was also basing it off of past Samsung devices; although I think that may have changed with the release of the GSIII.

720p is good, but 1080p better 😉

Hmmmm…Well if you ask me their possible butttttt
A. I can do the first one in Excel myself
B. Those benchmarks could be anything
C. Is Possible but Idk Jelly Bean was just recently introduced and when ICS came out the Note was still on Gingerbread when it was introduced, and took them a while to upgrade them.
