Just a few weeks before Samsung's newest device makes its debut.
Samsung's Galaxy Note (pictured) is a big phone, but it's also proved pretty popular in the 10ish months it's been available. For the last few weeks, we've been rumors that Samsung was preparing to announce a new version of the Note this month and it seems those rumors were true. Samsung this week revealed that we would indeed be seeing the new Note at the end of this month.
Reuters reports that the South Korean company will unveil the creatively-named Galaxy Note 2 on August 29 at its Samsung Mobile Unpacked event. Speaking to the news outlet a Samsung spokesperson said: "We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29.
The Unpacked event will take place two days before the opening of tech trade-show IFA and it won't be the first time we've seen Samsung use an Unpacked event to debut new hardware. The company took the wraps off of the Galaxy SIII at its Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 event in London this past May.
Though details on the Note 2 are slim on the ground, we do know it will have a faster processor. There's also talk of a bigger screen, but we're not sure you can go bigger than 5.3 inches (the current Note) without entering Galaxy Tab territory. Still, we'll keep you posted on any rumors we hear and we'll see you back here on August 29!
