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.
