Earlier on Thursday, we told you that a clue involving a magic wand on the invitation to Samsung's next Unpacked event was pointing to the introduction of the Samsung GALAXY Note 2 on the August 29th date of the event. Not only would that be just a couple of days before the IFA consumer trade fair, it would come almost two weeks before the rumored introduction of the next Apple iPhone.
Speculation is that the son of phablet will offer a slightly larger 5.5 inch unbreakable screen, a faster processor and a better camera. The Samsung GALAXY Note has a 5.3 inch WXGA Super AMOLED display, a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and an 8MP camera on back. Samsung shipped over 50 million smartphones in the second quarter of this year to continue its perch at the top of the global smartphone market. The company is currently embroiled in a patent trial with Apple that continues Friday after a one-day recess.
