An official Samsung representative confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be unveiled at the company's "Unpacked" event scheduled to take place in Berlin on Aug. 29.
This event was announced by Samsung yesterday and the representative also told Reuters that the public will receive a first-look at the next-generation model of the smartphone tablet hybrid.
The Galaxy Note 10.1, and Galaxy Tab 11.8 are also expected to be unveiled there.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 has already been introduced, but Samsung has reportedly made some changes to the device and will re-introduce it alongside the next-generation Note.
Recent reports have pointed to Samsung bumping up the Galaxy Note 2's screen size to 5.5-inches.
This report stated that the Galaxy Note 2 will come with a quad-core processor and a 12- to 13-megapixel rear camera. And even though Samsung will enlarge the screen on the device, the size of the new Note when compared to the original will be the same. GSMArena heard this same thing from a source not too long ago.
Even though the Galaxy Note 2 will be unveiled in August of 2012, the device will not be officially released to the public until October. Many reports from various publications have already indicated that.
Other rumors have alluded to a September release. This earlier launch would help Samsung get a head start on its biggest competitor, the next-generation iPhone, which could be unveiled in late September or October.
The device was first confirmed to be in the works by Samsung back in June.
Samsung Arabia took to its Twitter account last month and announced a few different devices that included the Galaxy Note successor.
"Which one of these are you excited about #GalaxyBeam #GalaxyTab2 #GalaxyNote #Poll," tweeted the company.
