LG_Optimus-Vu

A battle between two extra-sized phones is about to commence, courtesy of Samsung and LG. The former, of course, is the undisputed leader in the phablet category, with the Galaxy Note. While LG hasn’t been too successful with the Optimus Vu, partly due to the fact that it has yet to cross over to another country, LG is betting on the Optimus Vu 2 to knock the champion down. As recently reported, Samsung is planning to reveal the Galaxy Note 2 during IFA 2012, which will be held from August 31 – September 5 in Berlin, Germany. But according to the…

The Samsung Galaxy Note is still an AT&T exclusive in the U.S. but that’s about to change soon as we keep getting more and more reports detailing T-Mobile’s own Galaxy Note launch plans. Sure, the Galax Note 2 is supposedly launching this summer at IFA 2012, and customers interested in getting a phablet should rather wait for that model to become official, but that won’t stop T-Mobile from unveiling its own Galaxy Note flavor. Speaking of officially announcing the device, the carrier is yet to produce an official press release, but considering that Galaxy Note support documents have already been…

After being shrouded in mystery for so long, it seems we are nearing the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Korean news agency MK has reported that Samsung is going to debut the Galaxy Note 2 at the upcoming IFA 2012 in Berlin, a consumer electronics show that will be held late next month. A source close to the development team has confirmed that the sequel to the multi-million selling Galaxy Note will indeed come with a 5.5-inch display, as reported a while back. And we hope you’re sitting down, because there are more juicy details on the Galaxy…

Mock-up design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2

We’re not sure if Samsung is trying to pull a Galaxy S3 on the Galaxy Note 2 – keeping all information about the phablet on a lock down until introduction day – but it sure feels like it. All we got so far of the Galaxy Note 2 are speculations that tech pundits have been throwing about, with Samsung seemingly staying quiet – save for one tweet. Here’s an update on the phablet phenomenon straight from the usual anonymous source. GSM Arena has gotten in touch with an insider who said that the next-gen phablet will be out in September. This,…

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…

Samsung Galaxy Note

This one definitely goes into the Galaxy Note 2 rumors folder as there is no hard evidence to support the claim, but according to MK Business News, Samsung Electronics will release the Galaxy Note 2 in October. Obviously, Samsung is bound to release the Galaxy Note 2 by the end of the year, but an October release for the Galaxy Note 2 will automatically pin Samsung’s phablet directly against Apple’s iPhone 5, also expected to be released during the same time period. Such a head-on battle would definitely make a lot of sense for Samsung, given that the first Galaxy…

Galaxy-Note-2-mockup

Although few people were initially bullish about it, due mostly to its humongous size, Samsung’s Galaxy Note “phablet” struck gold and already sold in 7 million units worldwide. Released back in October 2011 in Europe and at the beginning of 2012 in the US, the Note is clearly worthy of a successor, but up until now, we knew very little about what could the Note 2 bring to the table. While we still don’t know anything official about the Galaxy Note 2, the guys at UbuntuLife are claiming to have found out a few juicy details about it. First of…

samung-galaxy-note-2

Because it hasn’t been more than a few months since the Galaxy Note was launched in US, you may be inclined to believe that the Galaxy Note 2 will be launched in 2013. But if we go back, we see that the first Galaxy Note was announced in September at IFA in Berlin, and then less than 2 months later it was released to the public in Europe, at the end of October. These next-gen devices tend to be released about a year later compared to their predecessors. By now, most manufacturers should be able to make next-gen devices even…
