Did Samsung finally revealed its upcoming smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 2? An alleged photo of the devices was posted on the official Facebook page of Samsung Pakistan.
The photo has a caption that says, "Picture perfect view made even more perfect with Samsung Galaxy S3." However, the device does not resemble Samsung best-selling smartphone.
The screen display is even bigger than the Galaxy S3's 4.8-inch screen. Commenters said that it is the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The photo was suspicious since it looks exactly the same that was claimed as the GS III image before that flagship was launched. The only difference is it was posted on an official outlet. To incur more suspicion, the photo on the Facebook page of Samsung Pakistan suddenly disappeared.
Samsung Mobile is expected to launch the new Galaxy Note 2 on August 29 at the IFA 2012 event in Berlin, Germany. Samsung already sent out invites for the Unpacked event but no device was mentioned. However, it seems that Korea-based tech manufacturer left a clue in the invitation - an S Pen, or the Samsung stylus pen found in the Samsung Galaxy Note.
"When magical moments come alive. Unpacked Berlin 29.08.2012 Samsung Mobile," says the invite.
The American market may get the launch first on 15th and the European and global market two weeks later on August 30th. If Samsung chooses to launch the device twice - separately, there is a high chance that there will be difference between the two versions of the phablet.
Weeks ago, leaked benchmarks suggest that highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may be faster than the Galaxy S3. The leaked data revealed that Galaxy Note 2 will be equipped with 1.6 GHz quad core Exynos 4412 processor with Mali-400 graphics.
As for screen resolution, 1280x720 pixels is shown, which puzzled us since the predecessor of the device sports 1280x800. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be powered Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich although it is rumored that it will be equipped with the recently release Android Jelly Bean.
Another rumored specification of the device HD Super AMOLED Plus screen with a regular RGB matrix, which is a welcomed spec for the Galaxy Note 2.
