Samsung Galaxy Note II official: 5.5-inch quadcore phablet

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note II, the successor to its surprising hit "phablet" the Galaxy Note, with a 5.5-inch stylus-enabled display and 1.6GHz quadcore processor. Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with 2GB of RAM, the Note II also includes a fatter, longer stylus - though still fitting it into the body of the phone itself - with a new rubber tip for more comfortable handwriting and sketching. Perhaps most impressive, though, are the dimensions: by trimming the bezels, Samsung has managed to bring the new Note II in at almost the same size as the model it replaces, despite the larger screen.

Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on

Take the DNA of the original Galaxy Note, add the style of the Galaxy S III, and throw in a more comprehensive understanding of what digital pen-users want, and you'd come up with the Galaxy Note II. Samsung's second-gen "phablet" manages to deliver a larger screen in a more pocketable form-factor than its trail-blazing predecessor, including making the digital S Pen itself easier to wield. We caught up with Samsung and the Note II ahead of its official launch at IFA 2012 to see if one of our favorite devices could really have been so improved.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs allegedly leak in full

Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 phablet is believed to be only days from its official release, but a Korean newspaper claims to have jumped the gun on what, exactly, the stylus-toting handset will bring to the table. The Note 2 GT-N7100 will have a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 display, so the Seoul Newspaper claims, along with 3G/4G connectivity and a 1.4GHz quadcore Exynos 4412 processor. Somewhat surprisingly, it's also tipped to arrive running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, not the older Ice Cream Sandwich.

You might want to skip the Galaxy Note 2

This month we're hearing rumors upon rumors that Samsung will be releasing their second full iteration of the Galaxy Note line with a "2" model toting a massive 5.5-inch display - but you might want to go ahead and skip it. We've been using the Samsung Galaxy Note - the first one - since it was released, and are now working quite actively with both the Galaxy Note 10.1 (the tablet-sized version of the device line) as well as the Samsung Galaxy S III. As it turns out, there might not be a need for yet another Samsung display size.

It's nearly time for the next Samsung Unpacked event at IFA 2012 in Berlin, and another image has been leaked showing what they plan on revealing: the Galaxy Note 2. Rather legitimate looking images of the device have been shown today by Daniel UY, a self-proclaimed Samsung addict and rather talented mock-up artist. While it does appear that a real photo of the device has been "leaked" (per our post earlier today), we've now got confirmation from the original artist himself that his own talents have been spread without his consent.

The screen does indeed look to have seen a size increase, and the bezel of the phone has been substantially reduced too.
