Report: Samsung to Release 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II in October
Samsung’s Galaxy Note was such a large smartphone — its display measured a palm-stretching 5.3 inches — that it effectively doubled as a mini-tablet. Never one to let such silly concepts like practicality get in their way, Samsung is reportedly working on an even larger version of the Galaxy Note, appropriately named the Galaxy Note II.
According to The Verge, by way of MK Business News, the new phone/ tablet (phablet? phoblet?) will sport a mammoth 5.5-inch display. With a screen that large, Zack Morris, the original brick phone phenom, will be green with envy. The Galaxy Note II will also reportedly come equipped with a quad-core processor, 12-megapixel rear-facing and 8-megapixel front facing cameras and run Google’s latest Android Jell Bean mobile operating system.
So when can you expect this elephantine phone/ tablet combo to hit the market? Well, MK Business News has it pegged for an October release date, just in time for Apple’s estimated iPhone 5 coming out party.
