Samsung Galaxy Note II could feature 5.5-inch 1680×1050 pixel display, Exynos 5 processor

With the Galaxy S III out of the way, everyone’s eyes will be now set on the Galaxy Note II, which should be expected to debut around IFA in September and a roll-out in subsequent weeks. Word on the street, courtesy Ubuntu Life, is that Samsung could significantly up the stakes with a bigger 5.5-inch retina busting display with a 1680×1050 pixels resolution, giving it an insane 360ppi pixel density.

Samsung could probably fit the larger display (when compared to the Galaxy Note) in roughly the same footprint by squeezing the bezel, just like it did with the Galaxy S III. It is also tipped to utilize a dual-core Exynos 5250 processor, which runs on ARM 15 architecture that would provide better power and performance efficiency. This same processor was earlier rumored to power the Galaxy S III.

Other features that could make it to the Galaxy Note II are a 1.5GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera (probably same as the Galaxy S III) and the new software add-ons that we saw on the Galaxy S III. We have our doubts that Samsung would give the Galaxy Note II a paint of Android Jelly Bean, which is expected to be announced later this month at Google I/O, and would rather go with the same stuff as we saw on the Galaxy S III.
