Samsung Electronics will unveil its popular Galaxy Note smartphone on August 29.
“We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29,” a Samsung spokesman said on Friday, without elaborating. The event will take place two days before the opening of Europe’s biggest consumer electronics trade fair IFA.
Media reports speculate the new Galaxy Note may feature an unbreakable, 5.5-inch display – slightly larger than the current one – as well as a faster processor and a much better camera.
Samsung, once a laggard in the smartphone market, overtook Apple last year to become the world’s largest smartphone maker.
Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy S III in May, while Apple is planning a major product launch on Sept 12, stoking speculation that the company may announce the sale of its redesigned iPhone.
