After the almost dubious success of Galaxy Note, Samsung seems to have decided to launch the successor of the device that, on one hand, has been likened to a brick, a toast and an ‘elephant’s gadget’, and on the other hand, has sold over 5 million pieces. Being one of a kind in its limbo between the phone and tablet, this ‘phablet’ is likely to undergo some dimensional transformation, as the successor is rumored to be bigger and faster.
Since there has not been any official announcement, only some of the most concrete speculations can be reported. One hears on the grapevine that this ‘successor’ will probably have a 5.5 inch, 1680 x 1050p display (quoted as super large HD display). It will also be running on Exynos 5250 dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. The MK Business News report also concludes that the gadget will sport a neat 12 MP camera. The most obvious addition of the Galaxy Note successor is the Android 4.1 Jelly bean, which is currently rocking the OS world. These are all considerably upgrades, considering that the Galaxy Note has a display of 5.5 inch, 800 x 1280 pixels and a camera of 8 megapixels.
There had been a rumor that the Galaxy Note successor will have an unbreakable plane (UBP) display- however, the chances of this rumor materializing is little. This technology may be available in future handsets and could very well be the transition between the rigid screens we have now and flexible displays. With the IFA tech conference in Berlin only two months away, the chances of unveiling photos, features and technical details are good. However, some are of the opinion that Samsung will again be very hush about the whole affair as it had been before the launch of Galaxy Note.
According to MK Business the Samsung Galaxy Note successor is going to be launched in late August while the official launch may happen sometime in October. Obviously this has jumpstarted arguments that the Galaxy Note successor is an attempt to undercut Apple’s iPhone 5, which is slated to launch in August too. Samsung Galaxy S III has trumped the sales, taking over iPhone 4S. So it’s not difficult to imagine that Samsung is looking to overshadow the next iPhone with another one of its flagship series, Galaxy.
