The Samsung Galaxy Note is not only one of the most innovative Android devices ever, it’s also one of the most successful too. Samsung realized it found a winning formula and may have plans for its successor to be released later in the year. According to the International Business Times, the Galaxy Note follow-up is poised to be bigger and better than the first… literally. Instead of featuring the 5.3-inch screen from the original, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED WSXGA screen with a resolution of 1050 x 1680 and 360 ppi. Samsung’s reasoning for featuring a Super AMOLED screen? Compared to RGB AMOLED Plus displays, the Super AMOLED display has topnotch durability and power-efficiency. Speaking of power efficiency, the upcoming smartphone is also expected to feature Sammy’s dual-core Exynos 5250 processor. This powerhouse chip is not only expected to be clocked at speeds up to 2.0GHz, but it’s expected to double the performance of existing 1.5GHz Cortex-A9 processors. In addition, the chip is more than capable of handling the Galaxy Note 2’s display as it’s designed to support high resolution WQXGA (2500 x 1600) displays.
The Galaxy Note 2 is also expected be similar in design to the Galaxy S III, while coming with premium bells and whistles too. It will likely arrive with more RAM (1.5GB is expected) and also feature an 8MP camera like the original. While 8MP may sound a bit disappointing, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to feature an improved lens and sensors which will result in improved photographs and video. And like the recently-released Galaxy S III, the Galaxy Note 2 will likely feature S Beam, S Voice, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Smart Stay.
Just when we thought the hoopla with the Galaxy S III saga was over, we now have the possible mystery and excitement hovering over what looks to be the Galaxy Note 2. Make sure you stay tuned with Talk Android as we will continue to share news as we get it.
