The mobile giant is set to unveil its latest Galaxy Note II device tonight at this year’s IFA conference in Berlin.
At its Mobile Unpacked event, Samsung is set to showcase a range of its latest products, and the device many have been waiting for is confirmed to be taking the stage.
An official spokesperson for the company has reportedly confirmed the announcment to news organisation Reuters, simply stating: "We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29."
The device was highly anticipated to make an appearence at the event as its predecessor was unveiled at the same event last year.
Rumours surrounding the device have been circulating the web throughout the day as the device’s alleged specs were leaked ahead of tonight’s event.
Reported to be legitimate by Chinese news blog Techorz.com, the Galaxy Note II is rumoured to sport an upgraded 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1,280×720 – a significant upgrade over its predecessors 5.3-inch offering, whilst boasting a new screen ratio of 16:9.
Complete with a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, eight-megapixel camera and the latest Android OS Jelly Bean, the device is hyped as a very impressive offering for users.
It is tipped to incorporate both 3G and 4G LTE technology, meaning the device will be compatible with the latest and fastest mobile broadband services.
The Galaxy Note has become some what of a niche within the mobile market as a hybrid device, mixing elements of both the smartphone and tablet PC. Whilst smartphone users found the device’s screen to be too large, others found the device ideal as their second device, eliminating the need for a tablet PC or similar device.
Samsung will certainly be tracking the anticipation for its Note II at tonight’s IFA conference as the firm hopes to build off its predecessors success, which scored over seven million sales worldwide.
