Apple may have just handed Samsung it's rear in a U.S. court, and recent attention may have been on the Galaxy Note 10.1 and other Samsung tablets, but the Korean company is still plugging away at the smartphone market.
Today a Korean publication got hold of a list of leaked specs for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note II smartphone. With its 5.3-inch screen, the original Galaxy Note is one of the largest smartphones on the market. The smartphone sold surprisingly well and features a stylus, much to the dismay of Apple fans. The sequel to the Galaxy Note is expected to be announced very soon and could spell a hit for Samsung.
The leak specifies that the smartphone will have a Super AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. Incredibly, the phone will have an even bigger screen than the original Galaxy Note, with a 5.5-inch screen. The camera will be 8-megapixels and the phone will be available in either a 16GB or 32GB version - same as the Galaxy S III. That the Galaxy Note II will have 4G LTE connectivity is a given, but Android fans will be happy to hear that the phone will ship running a version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google's latest mobile OS.
If you happen to read Korean, feel free to check out the leaked spec list below. For everyone else, the specs will soon be confirmed, as the Galaxy Note II is expected to debut on August 29 at the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin.
