Don't we all love a challenge? And you know there is going to be one here if this rumour is anything to go by. Apparently, Samsung is preparing an update to the runaway success that is the Galaxy Note and it'll feature what it calls an 'unbreakable display.'
Furthermore, according to MK Business News, it'll be brought out in October to compete against - you guessed it - the forthcoming iPhone 5.
Sounds great - except we don't imagine they'll be direct competitors. Whilst we love the Galaxy Note, they hardly go for the same audience with the iPhone having broad appeal compared to the Note's more specialist market.
Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will boast an unbreakable plane display (UBP) which is thinner and will allow the phone to then be skinnier by allowing more space for the internal components - one of which will be a quad core processor. And if you thought the current Note was huge, this'll have an even bigger screen, though the exact size remains elusive.
On top of that, the already impressive battery will be bigger though that may only be incremental to cope with the extra visual real estate.
Powering the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be the as yet unannounced Jelly Bean OS which will be nice to see. Although Ice Cream Sandwich has yet to make it onto a large number of handsets, we're always up for progression here at Mobot.
As a sidenote, it'll be interesting if Samsung does time the Galaxy Note 2 release to coincide with the iPhone 5. Whilst it won't make much of a dent in the sales of those Apple fanboys who will no doubt be camping out, waiting for one, it'll sour relations even more between the sworn electronic enemies. Especially since Samsung has apparently moved that date from another to take advantage of the challenge.
Let battle commence!
