All you Samsung fans have been spoilt this year already with the release of smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, Samsung Galaxy S Advance and the most notable release, the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Just a mere three months after the launch of 2012’s most popular smartphone, Samsung are once again planning to launch the next Galaxy device in August 2012 and is widely rumoured to be the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The original Samsung Galaxy Note
Let’s start with the original Samsung Galaxy Note. The Note is the perfect middle ground between smartphone and tablet and was the first of its kind. Sporting a whopping 5.3 inch HD Super AMOLED display, viewing videos and browsing the net is a joy. Inside the large shell is a 1.4GHz dual core processor; a must have for any multitasking addict. The Samsung Galaxy Note comes with a built in stylus called the S-Pen. This is great for making notes, texting and all round use of this “phablet”.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2
So, what can we expect from the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 2 you ask? Well, for a start, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is rumoured to modestly increase the size of its already large display from 5.3 inches to 5.5 inches, which is 0.7 inches larger than the new Samsung Galaxy SIII.
With a new streamlined ‘unbreakable plane’ (UBP) display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to run on Google’s new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and a 1.4GHz quad core processor similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S3. This means you can multitask to the max and in style on the new larger display. Also rumoured is a new 12 megapixel camera for even better quality photos and videos.

It’s been confirmed that Samsung will be announcing the next Galaxy in the US on August 15th, which we’re hoping to be the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. If the announcement rumours are correct, we should hopefully see a UK release of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 around September/October.
