    Nice, but I ll just get iphone 5.

    Sweet! Just ordered the One X, but my friends keeps asking me about a follow up to the Note, because he wants a large screen size on his phone.

    Either Exynos with LTE or S4 with Adreno 320 is perfectly fine, especially with Android JB.

      Just a thought… by my calculations, a screen of 1280×720 at 5.5in diag would mean a display panel of 121.76mm x 68.49mm (compared to 114.16mm x 71.35mm for the current Note). That’s a physical screen size 7.6mm (0.3in) longer but 2.86 (0.11in) narrower than at present. Not sure if that’s such a good idea as the display ratio of the current Note seems far more useful for everything bar, perhaps, watching movies. The wide-screen approach isn’t helpful when the phone will be used much of the time in portrait.

      I’m going from the note to the one x now and really hoping htc will come out with a big phone around the same time as the note 2 or unfortunately I’ll have to get the note 2.

    200 mhz bumps are only good for benchmarks. It’s like an e-p***s measuring contest…

    Only the OCD will notice a 2.3% increase in performance.

    Wife just nabbed a OneX and loves it, i decided to hold on to my Arc for a little longer for the Note 2, this makes me happy. Honestly hoping it does end up with the S4 Pro 🙂

    “According to the GLBenchmark statistics, the Galaxy Note 2 has a 1280×720 resolution screen of unknown size and technology, and is currently running Android 4.0.4.”

    Seems unlikely. The Note 1 had 1280×800. The Note 2 must have at least that. Especially if they make the display even larger.

  • TouchMyBox

    So wait, it is a lower resolution than the first Galaxy Note? That would be disappointing if true.

  • Giovanni Guerra

    benchmarks are usually run off screen at a set resolution in order to make comparing to other devices easier, normally 1280 x 720

    I heard about this a few weeks ago and I put my Rogers White LTE up for sale and picked up the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3.

    Can’t wait.

  • simian

    I’d totally consider picking one of these up… Maybe not as a phone but to fill that void between super-large-phone and 7″ tablet.

    • Pat

      Try it! You won’t need another phone. You won’t need a GPS navigator either, or Satellite Radio…or a tablet…

  • Ron Mexico

    Samsung release it, and take my money!

  • Deli

    can’t wait!! my S3 is a place holder!!

  • Pat

    I have a Note, and you get used to the size quickly. Even with a small leather case, it fits well in pockets. No need for a tablet with that phone…

      I just bought a Note 7/6.. and I am enjoying every minute of it.. will the 2 be faster? maybe thinner? IPS-HD? E.T.A.? Sept? Oct? Nov? When will Source be released for Custom “Non-Bloatware” Roms? Dec? Jan?

      I enjoy love the Flappjaxx romed 1,718 mhz 800*1280 HD Galaxy Note that is sitting here in front of me in the here and now..:-)

  • Phil

    I still want to see if HTC comes out with their rumoured phablet. A giant One X….. Sweet

    Here is why I hope this report is wrong.

    A 5.5″ 1280×720 screen only has an area 2.4% bigger than a 5.3″ 1280×800 screen.

    A 5.5″ 1280×800 screen would be 7.7% bigger area than a 5.3″ 1280×800 screen.

    The current note is 285ppi, a 5.5″ screen at 1280×720 would have a 267ppi.

    If they went to 5.75″ with this ratio that would be ok but they would have to bump the resolution.

    • Wade

      Following on from my previous post.

      The current note is 147mm x 83mm, the screen is 71 x 114mm.

      A Note 2 with 5.5″ 1280×720 using the bezel widths from a SIII would be 152mm x 79mm and have a screen of 68 x 122mm.

      Apart from the slightly lower dpi this would actually be pretty good.

      Hopefully the Note 2 is at least 1mm thinner.

    • dcsvelan

      As Glaxy note 2 is bigger than SIII a reduction in the bezel widths is possible. The screen then would be 136mm X 70mm. It might look like either a Dell Streak 5 or a Panasonic Eluga Power. With a lower thickness and weight,267 ppi is not an issue.

    • dcsvelan

      I wish the logo be moved to the back cover and the physical button is replaced with a touch-sensitive one.

  • Wade

    136x70mm would be a 6″ screen which wont happen. I doubt the bezel will be smaller than the S3. The bigger the screen the bigger the bezel has to be for rigidity.

    I still think the screen will be 5.5″ 1280×800 with a 274ppi.

    The advantage of the 1280×720 screen would be a consistency with a lot of other devices for programmers, narrower device which is better for watching movies.

  • dcsvelan

    well, I meant the body dimensions. For a bigger bezel, Can it be a 5.5′ 1280 X 720 with a total size of 149mm X 77mm?.
    A wide screen in the landscape orientation is ideal for browsing the web and for lot of text reading. Ofcourse for viewing movies as well.

    • Wade

      After thinking about the screen ratio for a while i must say i am pretty happy if they change from 16:10 to 16:9.
      This would make the device slightly narrower, make movie watching better & mean less problems for developers and app compatibility as it would match most other phones.

      The only downside is the resolution. The current resolution is 285ppi, a 5.5″ 1280×720 would be 267ppi, 1366×768 would be 285ppi while 1600×900 would be 334ppi.

      If the screen wasn’t pentile 1280×720 would be as good or better than the current note.
