According to Reuters and a variety of other sources, Samsung is expected to announce the follow-up to the successful Galaxy Note “phablet” at an event on August 29.
Reports are speculating that the new Galaxy Note will feature a 5.5-inch display, which is slightly larger than the current one, as well as a speedier processor and a better camera, though other details are somewhat sparse right now. There’s a chance a new Galaxy tablet will emerge, too.
The announcement of the new Note will occur at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin just a few days before the IFA European consumer electronics trade show. It’s also likely to happen before Apple announce the next iPhone 5 and possibly iPad Mini. Samsung and Apple remain big rivals in the smartphone and tablet space, and are currently embroiled in numerous patent battles.
