Both Galaxy Note 2 leaked images were actually fakes

August 19, 2012
Galaxy Note 2 Mockup by Daniel Uy

A few days ago we saw not one but two leaked Galaxy Note 2 images that looked pretty similar, and pretty interesting at the same time. Both photos featured a Galaxy Note 2 design similar to that leaked Galaxy Note 2 bezel image we saw in the preceding days, and they matched previous reports.

The Galaxy Note 2 appeared to be sporting the same general design lines of its Galaxy S3 cousin, and pretty much matched our own expectations. But it looks like both images were fake “leaks,” with one inspiring the other – we did advise you to take everything with a grain of salt, as we didn’t have any official confirmation for either model.

It turns out that the second leak we showed you – the press photo-like Galaxy Note 2 image – was actually a Photoshop mockup done by designer Daniel Uy (see original above). The mockup itself was created based on that leaked front panel that revealed the slimness of the phablet’s bezel, and was then used to create the blurry image featured by Know Your Mobilethe first leaked image we showed you.

In other words, it looks like Samsung managed to keep the design of the Galaxy Note 2 under wraps so far, at least for the time being, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the final Galaxy Note 2 version looked similar to these fake leaks. Not to mention that, with 10 days to go until the company unveils this new phablet version (the Unlocked event is scheduled for August 29 in Berlin, Germany), we could see the real thing get leaked after all.
