Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Leaked

Apple’s not the one smartphone maker with device leaks.

KnowYourMobile has turned up photo of what it is saying is the next Samsung Galaxy Note. According to their sources, the new phone will have a 5.5″ screen, not the 5.3″ screen found on the current Galaxy Note. The new phone, like the Samsung Galaxy S3, is expected to have a quad-core CPU as well as 2GB of RAM and Samsung’s next-generation S-Pen technology. That pen technology is what they’re most famous for at the moment, and it’s ben incorporated into Samsung’s Note 10.1 tablet s well.

There’s no word on when it will be released, but the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sometime next quarter. We don’t know the price either, but the current model costs well over $500, so it wouldn’t surprise me if the new phone costs the same.

Update: This photo is now thought to be a fake.
