The rumor mill started last week when we mentioned that Samsung might release a second generation spin-off of the Galaxy Note this year. As previously reported, it was rumored that the Galaxy Note 2 will be equipped with a 12-megapixel camera sensor, a quad-core processor, and a controversial 5.3-inch flexible LED display. We also mentioned – based from sources on the web – that the Galaxy Note 2 might arrive running the next version of the Android operating system, a.k.a. Jellybean.
To bring more light into the issue, we’d like to add that the Korean newspaper MK Business News is saying that the rumored Galaxy Note 2 will make its debut in October, with the aim of going head to head with Apple’s iPhone 5. “South Korea’s Samsung Electronics will be releasing a flexible display-equipped successor model to the Galaxy Note in October so as to compete against Apple’s iPhone 5,” the publication wrote. So far, this is all that we have for now. A flexible screen might not really appeal to some, but a quad-core-powered “phablet” running Android Jellybean will be nice.
