Samsung is expected to announce its next-generation smartphone/ tablet hybrid -- the Galaxy Note 2 -- at their Mobile Unpacked event on August 29; however one South Korean paper has already published what it claims are the specs of the hotly anticipated Galaxy Note.
The Seoul paper
claims to have the full specs on the Galaxy Note 2 which, according to the publication, will boast a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, a 5.5 inch 1280 x 720 AMOLED display, 4G LTE connectivity, 16GB or 32 GB of storage and a 8 MP camera with the device running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

These specifications seem to tie in with previous rumors regarding a 5.5 inch screen and a faster CPU, but otherwise Samsung fans will have to wait until August 29 to find out whether these leaked details are accurate.
While information on the forthcoming Galaxy Note 2 is limited at best, a leak reported over the weekend by SamMobile suggest that the Galaxy Note 2 will be available in two different colors and should launch in October.
Meanwhile, Apple is expected to launch its next-gen iPhone, which some predict will have a larger screen, at an event on September 12 followed by a 7.85 inch tablet, known as the iPad Mini, at a separate event in October.
