Samsung has two events schedule for August, and rumors surrounding both claim they will be Note-worthy. See what I did there? With the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the rearview mirror, Samsung is shifting its focus to the successor to last year’s Galaxy Note. An invitation being sent around for the manufacturer’s IFA Unpacked event in Berlin seems to suggest it could be the subject of the day’s proceedings. Note the hardly subtle presence of a stylus. Rumor has it the Note 2 will feature a larger display than its predeccesor and a thinner form factor.
The development calls into question rumors that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might make an appearance at an August 15th press event. That event might still host something Note related, however. It wouldn’t be too farfetched for Samsung to use the occasion to relaunch the Galaxy Note 10.1, a tablet first unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February but since updated with a quad-core processor and redesigned aesthetics. Our money is on Samsung saving the slightly bigger announcement of the Note 2 for the world stage in Berlin.
