Samsung confirms a new supersized Samsung Galaxy Note will be unveiled this month

Samsung Galaxy Note II Release Date

The smartphone that Samsunged Samsung (005930) ended up Samsunging us earlier this year when we learned that more than 7 million people purchased the prodigious phone. That’s a success by any measure, and though the supersized smartphone hasn’t even hit T-Mobile shelves yet, Samsung is already set to debut the “phablet’s” successor. Rumors have been swirling for weeks, suggesting that Samsung has plans to unveil the Galaxy Note II during a press conference at the annual IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany, and now the South Korea-based consumer electronics giant has confirmed as much to Reuters.

“We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29,” a Samsung spokesperson told the news organization without elaborating. The Galaxy Note II is expected to feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a quad-core Exynos processor, and it may also include an upgraded 12-megapixel rear camera.
