Samsung is all set to unveil its next-generation phablet, the Galaxy Note, this month. The company has started sending out invitations to an Unpacked event scheduled on Aug. 29 in Berlin.
Citing an unnamed Samsung spokesperson, Reuters reported on Thursday that the Korean tech giant is ready to unveil the next iteration in its phablet line up of Android smartphones on Aug. 29. The successor to Galaxy Note will release two days before the IFA 2012 consumer show, where its predecessor showed up last year. The spokesperson didn't provide further details about the device's hardware or features.
"We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29," Samsung spokesperson told Reuters.
The company is reportedly sending out invitations for an Unpacked event to be held in Berlin, Germany, on Aug. 29. The invitation quotes "when magical moments come alive." The invite has an object that resembles a wand and a mysterious box. Thanks to Reuters, we know what it is inside the box. However, it is still unknown about what the device looks like or what features does it boast.
Rumors suggest a device with 5.5-inch unbreakable HD screen, quad-core 1.6 GHz Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, 16/32/64GB storage, and 12- or 13-megapixel camera. The device is likely to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. However, rumors suggesting Jelly Bean OS also abound.
The last time we remember Samsung sending invites was for the Galaxy S3. Unpacked on May 3, Samsung's latest flagship smartphone hit stores by May 29. The Korean tech giant recorded a headstart against Apple, which is rumored to unveil its next iPhone on Sep. 12.
In the absence of iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 is selling like a bonanza sales item. Now it appears that Samsung is readying two smartphones - Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 - to compete against the impending demand for iPhone 5.
