Since the Samsung Galaxy Note was such a hit, selling an estimated 7 million units around the world, it only makes sense that Samsung is already planning a successor. Like many successors, the next iteration of the Galaxy Note is expected to be bigger & faster. With those sales numbers, it is safe to say Samsung as found a market they look to capitalize.
The Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy S 2 designs were identical except for the size of the device. The Galaxy Note 2 should see the same design concept as the Galaxy S 3. Not only will we see the same design but also the same technologies. Expect to see the S Beam, S Voice, Near Field Communication (NFC), and Smart Stay all on the Galaxy Note 2.
When next generation devices come along, the specifications you normally see receive upgrades are the processor & screen. Both of those are expected to improve. It is reported that the Galaxy Note 2 will have a WSXGA screen with a resolution of 1050x1680 pixels and a pixel density of 360 pixels per inch. The reason in opting in to this display is that it is said to be more durable & power efficient.
The processor should see an improvement as well. Samsung announced the Cortex-A15 core 2.0GHz Exnyos 5250 dual-core mobile application processor on November 30, 2011. This processor is said to possess twice the processing power over the current offering and is designed to work with high resolution displays. This processor comes in two versions that are clocked at 1.7GHz or 2.0GHz. Everyone (except Samsung) is still unsure as to which one the Galaxy Note 2 will get but either one would be simply amazing.
We can possibly see the Galaxy Note 2 available as soon as Fall 2012, like with other upgrades in tow such as increased RAM and an upgraded camera. We will announce more information about the Galaxy Note 2 once it becomes available.
What upgrades would you like to see in the Galaxy Note 2? If you are a Galaxy Note owner, would these upgrades be enough to convince you to spend the money for a new device?
