How do you followup a device that blurs the line the between a smartphone and a tablet with a 5.3-inch touchscreen, stylus input, and call making capabilities? We'll find out later this month when Samsung reveals the successor to its Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet hybrid, or "phablet" if you prefer to call it that (sounds better than "tablone," don't you think?). Word on the Web is that Samsung is planning a smartphone event on August 29.
There are conflicting reports on exactly what Samsung is willing to divulge at this point.
"We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29," a Samsung spokesman apparently told Reuters, without elaborating on any details.
At the same time, AllThingsD said it spoke with a Samsung representative who said the company "can confirm the Unpacked event will take place on August 29th, but we cannot disclose information on what will be unveiled." Be that as it may, it appears the other spokesperson let the cat out of the bag, whether Samsung approved the message or not.
While we don't have any concrete info to go on, there's been chatter that the second coming of the Galaxy Note could feature an even bigger touchscreen (5.5 inches), a faster CPU, and an improved camera.
