Samsung has begun sending out invites to the press for an August 29th event at IFA in Berlin and it would appear that it could be for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
SamMobile is reporting that Samsung has started inviting members of the press to an Unpacked event set to take place in Germany on August 29th. Though Samsung has not said what it will be announcing at the event, the magic wand seems to indicate that it might be for either the Galaxy Note 2 or the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Both devices use a stylus pen and the wand appears to have the shape of one. Of course, that doesn’t confirm anything but these are the two big Samsung devices that are on our radar so it would not be shocking to see either one of them announced at IFA.
Last year, Samsung showed off the original Samsung Galaxy Note at IFA so IFA 2012 seems like a likely launch pad for the Galaxy Note 2.
We had heard that Samsung might be having two launches for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. One in the United States, slated to take place on August 15th and one at IFA for the international version of the device.
This puts a bit of a damper on that original rumor as this is an Unpacked event and the other event isn’t, which could mean that the U.S. launch event pertains to the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Samsung launches products later in the United States and we have no reason, at least at the moment, to believe that it will do anything different with the Note 2 which means that August 29th could be the launch date for the Galaxy Note 2 and not August 15th.
It’s clear that Samsung is trying to throw everyone off-guard and thus far, it’s doing a great job.
Those interested in the Galaxy Note 2 will want to circle both dates in pencil to be sure but it’s looking like August 29th is going to be the date that it launches barring any surprises.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Rumors
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 figures to be the next phablet from Samsung and it’s rumored to be a nice upgrade over the original.
The Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to have a 5.5-inch HD display, quad-core Exynos processor, upgraded rear camera, 4G LTE capabilities and either Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It’ll also take advantage of the S-Pen stylus though we don’t know if Samsung has made any changes to the pen for the next Galaxy Note.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also rumored to have a design similar to the Galaxy S III, a smartphone that launched earlier this year.
