Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 2 factory photo confirms larger screen


The image shown above shows the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will have a bigger display than its previous version. The photo above reportedly comes from a disassembled factory unit, leaked by an individual.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note has been dubbed a “phablet” and a smartphone-table hybrid due to a huge 5.3-inch screen. The new Galaxy Note 2 screen will be a larger 5.5 inch screen. With a bigger screen the Galaxy Note 2 will be sort of a miniature tablet, despite it being a smartphone in all but size.

With a large 5.5-inch display which means it is the largest smartphone ever released. The Galaxy Note 2 might not fit in your pocket, but comes with all the advantages of a tablet’s larger screen. The extra space will mean that Samsung will include impressive components such as an overclocked 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Exynos (Found in some versions of the S3). The Galaxy Note 2 could also have a 12 or 13-megapixel camera, if the rumours are to be believed.

Stay tuned for more updates, release dates etc.

Black Samsung Galaxy S3 may come soon


There may be another colour of the Samsung Galaxy S3 for Android fans that have not yet bought the phone yet. The colours you can currently choose from are a pebble blue, white and red (in some parts of the phone) but now a black device has appeared in Carphone Warehouse’s internal inventory.

The news comes from a Carphone Warehouse ‘insider’ who sent snaps of the on-screen listing to the Android Police website.

This picture leaked is similar to the one from Carphone Warehouse, prior to the Galaxy S3′s released that pointed to the launch of the blue and white devices. So given the facts we would believe that the elusive black shade may actually be on the way.
