Reuters: Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 2 unveiling at IFA Berlin

When Samsung sent invites for an Unpacked event in IFA Berlin many speculated what it could be. All signs pointed to a new version of the Samsung Galaxy Note, but as with any rumor there was never any certainty.

It appears Reuters may have helped so instill some, though, as they claim a Samsung representative (who is not being named, of course) has confirmed to them the plans to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

The timing certainly makes sense. The original Galaxy Note was first launched October 2011. IFA takes place between August 31st and September 5th, and it’s likely we could see an October 2012 launch to give us that one year gap we tend to see between flagship releases.

If there was ever any doubt that Berlin, Germany would be the stomping grounds for what most certainly could be the biggest smartphone ever then this should cover it. If not then the truth should be here in about a month’s time.

    Releasing the Galaxy Note 2 at the same time as the new iPhone would be genius if and only if the new Note is released on multiple carriers.

      I agree. I have thought for months now that Samsung is waiting to release it around the same time as the iPhone 5 so they can steal Apple’s thunder. Remember how terrified Apple was about the GSIII? Haha. Release a note with specs like the GSIII on all major carriers and people won’t even remember there’s a new iPhone coming out. Except hipsters and your grandma.
