Samsung, the leader in Android smartphones, is already hitting headlines with the Galaxy S III, but it seems like the company is looking for more attention and is hence reportedly preparing to launch Galaxy Note 2, a successor to the Galaxy Note, in October, 2012.
The Korean manufacturer has scheduled the launch of Note 2 to take on Apple’s iPhone 5, which is also expected in the month of October. According to the rumour report out of MK Business News, the successor to the Galaxy Note could feature a thin unbreakable plane display (UBP) with a better display resolution.
Instead of using glass like with traditional OLED displays, UBP displays use a polymer film allowing for thinner and lighter components. Often kwon as ‘a precursor to the flexible display’, unbreakable plane display allows the device to bend a little and be slimmer. Galaxy Note 2 is also rumoured to have a screen larger than the current Note’s 5.3-inches.
Reportedly, Note 2 will be a “derivative model” of the Galaxy S3, and is hence expected to sport curved corners and a more pebble-like design. It may or may not have the stylus, but will feature quad-core processor for faster processing.
The upcoming smartphone from Samsung is likely to run on Jelly Bean, a successor to latest Android version Ice Cream Sandwich. Other rumoured features include a 12MP camera, longer battery life and a sturdier build compared to its predecessor.
