Rumor has it Samsung is getting ready to officially release its Galaxy Note 2 phone/tablet (phablet) device. Ahead of the launch, a Korean newspaper claims to have stripped any mystery away and bared the upcoming device's full monty spec sheet for all to see.

If the leaked list of parts and features is accurate, you can expect the Galaxy Note 2 to debut with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280x720 resolution, Exynos 4412 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage, 8MP rear-facing camera, 3G/4G connectivity, and various other bits topped off with Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean).

Samsung Galaxy Note
Samsung's first generation Galaxy Note device stretched the common smartphone into a phablet (half phone, half tablet).

We won't have to wait long to find out how accurate the above is. Samsung is said to be unveiling the Galaxy Note 2 at a press event on Wednesday, August 29th.

HAHA, I almost died when I read the parenthetical "phablet." :D

Phablet is apparently a commonly used term now. :D

I couldn't imagine using a phone this large.

Yeah me too... I was hoping for exynos 5250...the 4412 is no slouch, and I've heard it may be clocked higher than in the S3, but sure was hoping for A15 and new mali...I'm still interested though, anything will be a nice upgrade from my HTC desire.

I still can't get excited over the re-invention of the palm pilot ...and yes, I know it has cell phone, but for me, anything bigger than a 3.5-4" screen is too big for my pocket.

I went to look at some phones with my sister a few weeks back and she picked up the Note and immediately put it back, when I asked why she held it up and no word of a lie it was bigger than her face. I mean the phone went from the top of her head to a bit below her chin, I almost fell over laughing. The Note 2 is even bigger so I will try and take a pic of her with the phone next to her face for anytime I'm feeling blue.

Galaxy Note has really found a niche market

Samsung does make a sweet device. Would love to take it for a test drive.
