Samsung today released the first teaser video for its August 29 Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin. The video shows glimpses of what seems to be a smartphone with a stylus or what could eventually be unveiled as the Galaxy Note II. The video also drops hints like “all the things you can do in a blink of an eye with such a small and light thing.” Also Read - IFA 2021 cancelled due to COVID-19, organisers look forward to IFA 2022
The Galaxy Note II is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display with a 1650×1080 pixel resolution. Rumors also indicate the display would be unbreakable as Samsung is said to have used “plane display” technology, which is just a notch below flexible displays.

Samsung could also arm the Galaxy Note II with its latest Exynos 5 Dual chipset, which was released last week. The dual-core processor has been clocked at 1.7GHz and has been built using the ARM’s Cortex A15 design, which would make it competitive with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 chipset. It could ensure the Galaxy Note II’s performance is close to par when compared to the Galaxy S III but provide better battery management, which would be necessary for its bigger, higher resolution display.

The fast processor would be combined with a minimum of 1.5GB of RAM, though we believe Samsung could pump it up to 2GB. The Galaxy Note II will also feature at least a 8-megapixel camera, though we have heard conflicting accounts of it sporting a 12-megapixel snapper.
