A Samsung exec confirmed the rumours that the Galaxy Note 2 will be unveiled at the end of the month, but today there’s a couple nuggets of additional info. It’s known that the display will be 5.5-inches, up from the 5.3-inches from the original Galaxy Note.
An overseas report in the Korea Times points towards Samsung following through on bringing a smartphone with flexible display to market, they note that “Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, expected to be released next month, uses a 5.5 inch flexible display, a step forward to extending Samsung’s lead over its rivals. The product utilizes Unbreakable Plane (UBP) and plastic substrate that reduces thickness by 0.4T (0.4mm), consequently increasing battery capacity.” The Note 2 will not be completely flexible/bendable like we all dream of, but might have a slight curve to it.
In addition, it looks like Samsung Pakistan possibly outed the Note 2 on their Facebook page. An image appeared, posted above, then was quickly removed that might reveal its final design. Most notably is the larger display, the bezel and the omission of the home button. Samsung Pakistan reportedly gave the clue of “Picture perfect view made even more perfect with Samsung Galaxy S3.”
