[Rumour] Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to rival iPhone 5 with October Launch?

With the Samsung Galaxy S3 now a thing of reality and a dominant force on the smartphone scene, attention has turned to Samsung’s next big smartphone release as Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumours kick into action.

Tipped to further stretch the boundaries of what can be classed as a smartphone, new reports have suggested the surprise success of 2011 will see Samsung increase the 5.3-inch form factor for theGalaxy Note follow on with new technologies to be brought in to give the handset’s expansive display a certain amount of flexibility.

Citing “undisclosed industry sources,” the latest reports which come courtesy of MK Business News have suggested that “Samsung is in the midst of developing a large-screen smartphone model with displays exceeding five inches.” The reports went on to name the device as the “Samsung Galaxy Note 2.”

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Features

Whilst everything is still far from confirmed, the mooted Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is tipped to be the first handset to land boasting an unbreakable plane (UBP) display with the new, slimline screen acting “a precursor to the flexible display.”

With the new streamlined screen allowing Samsung to shave precious millimetres from the handset’s form, it is expected the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will sport an all new form factor with Google’s as yet unconfirmed Android 5.0 Jelly Beanoperating system lining up alongside a possible S3 mimicking quad-core processor to give the device some added grunt.

Samsung Galaxy Note Release Date

Again a long way from being confirmed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumour mill has suggested that the Korean manufacturer could use the S3 sibling to detract with the widely expected autumn Apple iPhone 5 release. As such, an early October Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date is reportedly currently being pencilled into the diary.
