As tech geeks move along to the next big thing from Samsung, all bespectacled eyes are now on the upcoming Galaxy Note 2 — the eagerly anticipated sequel to the phone and tablet hybrid that hasn’t even been announced yet by the company, but has already been causing some big waves on the blogging scene.
Fortunately, Samsung Mobile Arabia let loose on its Twitter account and almost confirmed the existence of Galaxy Note 2 in less than 140 characters.
Okay, so there may not be enough information to deduct from the tweet to get really excited about – but it’s as close to an official confirmation as we can get of the Galaxy Note 2 for now from a legitimate source.
Rumors and speculations often come from dubious places on the Internet, but we don’t think Samsung Mobile Arabia is one of them. If you remember a while back, the Gulf region was one of the first to be selling Samsung Galaxy S3 way ahead from the official launch date. So we can assume that the highly-guarded information somehow already traveled west from the bunker where the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is being secretly developed in South Korea.
In case you missed the rumored specs, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to come with an unbreakable 5.3-inch display (possibly larger), quad-core processor, bigger battery, Android 4.1 Jellybean, and an October release date.

and will be costlier than galaxy s3
I got my Note 1 for $200 .counting the 2 $50 gift cards they gave me. It should cost more then the G S 3. The digitizer system is expensive. Best phone ever with 286ppi. Can’t believe they are raising vertical res. From 1280 to 1560 or some crazy thing like that. But mine was purchased on opening day in March. Not getting rid of it for a while. Those 49mb AT@”T LTE Downloads are sweet here in Florida
I hope they didn’t change the screen size
Yeah its going up to 5.5″
this will be my phone next year…
Best tablet or phone or note ever i love it but dont know what can the note 2 add as nothing better than the note for the moment
Don’t mess this up Samsung. Exynos 5250 or gtfo
Wow so glad the Note has been so successful that it is like a second flagship for Samsung. As much the press has tried to paint this device as awkward (journalists must just haveunusually small hands). Getting Jelly Bean seems like a stretch as this would be the fastest Samsung has ever updated to the latest ver of Android. Especially now that Sammy is putting even more effort into user experience. Either Jelly bean does not change much from ICS or they really got an advanced copy to work with.
No JB wasn’t a huge leap from ICS. :) I synced the code the day it was available
