Samsung’s Unpacked event August 29th, confirmed yesterday, will in fact be the debut and unveiling of the companies new Galaxy Note 2 smartphone phablet. After Samsung sent out invitations to their Unpacked event in Berlin, Germany, they’ve now confirmed to Reuters they’ll be announcing the Galaxy Note 2.

We’ve heard rumors regarding the new and improved Galaxy Note 2 for a few months now, and the image above is only a fan-made image. We can however report that based on some benchmarks and rumors the Note 2 will feature the same awesome Galaxy S III like design, only be more in line with the Note.

Most likely the same impressive digitizer will be on board for the accurate S-Pen stylus support, and rumors also suggest Samsung will be tossing in their Exynos 4 Quad 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and an improved camera.

The original Galaxy Note was actually more successful than many thought, and we can now confirm that Samsung will be unveiling the successor a year later — which will be August 29th in Berlin. Many reports suggest a thinner design and smaller bezel so the actual in-hand device size won’t increase, but the screen will still be larger. We like what we’re hearing, but will be live in Germany with full coverage so stay tuned!
