The Galaxy Note II, a follow-up to the Galaxy Note of Samsung Electronics Co., will feature a 5.5-inch display, according to a report.
Boy Genius Report, a US weblog specialising in technology, said on Monday that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note II at its press conference slated for August 15. BGR said that Samsung will replace the original Galaxy Note’s 5.3 inch display with a larger Super AMOLED screen in the Galaxy Note II.
BGR said that the new model of the smartphone lineup would be thinner and taller than its predecessor, and fit well in human hands. The sequel to the Galaxy Note will also reportedly have a more powerful quad-core Exynos processor, Android’s new mobile operating system called “Jelly Bean”, a 12 megapixel rear camera and provide more useful applications for writing with S-pens.
Samsung expects the Galaxy Note II to help the company take a bigger share in the crucial US mobile handset market with its 5.5-inch display. Meanwhile, Samsung’s latest smartphone Galaxy S3 is being received well across the global market.
