If you were among those who felt the Samsung Galaxy Note was too big to be taken seriously as a smartphone, then prepare yourself for this report about its potential successor.
MK News reports that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will arrive in August packing a 5-5-inch display, which is even larger than the initial 5.3-inch offering.
The update to the hybrid 'phablet' will also see the integration of a quad-core processor and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, according to the report.
The stylus-equipped device could also get a significant spec bump in the camera department with a 12 or 13 megapixel camera, compared to the 8-meg snapper on the original.
The report says that a full reveal will take place at the IFA expo in Berlin next month, on the first anniversary of the first Galaxy Note's debut.
"Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 2 during the IFA 2012, a consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany in late-August," said Korea-based MK News' unnamed source.
"The new model will definitely come with a 5.5 in. display, but it is unclear as to what other features will be included."
Samsung certainly proved a lot of the doubters wrong with its initial offering as the Galaxy Note has been a great seller.
Can the company do it all over again, this year?
