Previous reports suggested that Samsung was working on a sequel for its wildly successful Galaxy Note smartphone. The follow-up “phablet” was said to feature a larger unbreakable plane display and a quad-core processor. According to an anonymous source speaking with GSM Arena, the Note II will be equipped with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display and a design inspired by Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone. Despite the larger screen, the width of the device has reportedly been reduced. It was originally said that the handset would launch in October to compete directly against Apple’s upcoming iPhone, but Samsung has seemingly moved the release date up to September to beat Apple to the punch. The website’s source was unable to confirm the Note II’s processor, RAM or camera.
