Samsung Galaxy Note II

We’ve been told by a source close to Samsung (005930) that the company will indeed be introducing a follow-up to the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II, during its press conference on August 15th. The display is said to be thinner and taller, allowing Samsung to stuff a 5.5-inch screen into a phone that can supposedly be held by humans and not just 7-foot tall Gorillas.
