Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ‘proper look’ is a mock-up

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ‘proper look’ is a mock-upHmm, this is a bit of a strange one. The cyberweb was all in a tizzy yesterday when a purported – purported – image of the imminent Samsung Galaxy Note 2 leaked.

However, despite many pairs of pants being ruined, it turns out it’s merely an edit of a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 mock-up. Or something.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 image to the left was initially posted by – you guessed it – Know Your Mobile. Subtle watermarking, huh? KYM boasted: “This is the first time we’ve got a proper look at the device,” having been “sent the image last night by one of our tipsters.”

However, some kid called Daniel UY later tweeted a couple of sites to explain: “This actual leaked image from KnowYourMobile, it's just an edit image of my mockup..And also printed :-)”

Daniel’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2 image, complete with a Daniel UY watermark on the rear, is tucked at the bottom of the article. Nice mock-up, actually.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launch event is tipped for August 29, at a pre-IFA event in Berlin. Rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs include a 5.5in “unbreakable” display, quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. We want.

Sometimes it pays to be a day behind with the tech news..

True :p. I do think the mock up at the bottom of the page is quite close to what the N2 will look like, though.

Ratios seem bit off, odd that the back looks wider than front.
Think they will continue to avoid equal screen spacing and identical corners as they did in s3 too

I think the Note 2 is going to absolutely storm it.

However, I'd rather have it in my hand (no double entendre intended) before I decided whether to purchase. I don't know a single person with the Samsung Note; just saw it from afar at a bus stop a few months ago.

Y'know, I was thinking about that earlier on. There are supposedly 10 million Galaxy Notes out there, but I've only ever seen one. Meanwhile, everyone I know - or see in the pub or on the train - seems to have an iPhone. Bizarre-o.

10 million worldwide vs how many billion people? Anyone seen any figures for uk sales?
Besides I sure as hell wouldn't take a galaxy note to the pub..

I got my Note in December and it goes everywhere with me, including the pub, but I'm 6'6" and it suits me as I've got big hands :) I only know another 1 person with one and have seen one other in the wild. Still in contract for 10 months and will be getting the Note2 after that - really can't go back to a smaller mobile after using this fabulous beast.

I have the white note and it is a great phone/tab. I couldn't go back to a smaller phone now after using this. It is great for watching films, playing games and surfing the web. I hardly turn on my computer now, just use my phone.
