Hmmmmm. Samsung's bringing "the next big thing" to New York City on Oct. 24. What ever could it be?
"Phil is a recovering print journalist, editor of Android Central, subtitles and street signs."
Wait, didn't they already debut the Note 2 in the states?
If by debut you mean had an event, no.
No. They are going to announce the uPhone, created by Stephan Jobes. :)
Look, it has a physical home button!
Yaay we are going back to the 90s again with another stylus device!!

Most touchscreens come with a stylus. It's called your finger. :)
The stylus is a bit of a give-away isn't it?
Obviously a 7" Phablet.
Yaaaa a 7" Phablet!!! lol
Until the next big thing doesn't have a Pentile screen I don't care much. You can tell, even on a 720p screen.
The screen on the Note II isn't pentile.
It is pentile, and lower resolution and DPI than the last Galaxy Note
Read the last line and look at the picture. The Note II's screen is RGB. It's just not the traditional arangment. Honestly, I think this will be better as all the sub-pixels have a central point of connection.
I can find more articles for you if you like...
It's RGB Matrix. It's not RGB Stripe, but it's also not Pentile Matrix.
All Samsung SAMOLED are Pentile, exception being SAMOLED+ which the Note II isn't. Or did I miss something?
You missed something. Samsung changed it up. See my post above.
SAmoled is nonpentile in itself. So samsung hasn't had a pentile screen for a while. But the note 2 is RGB so also non pentile
^^ what he said. its a hd super amoled screen :D
Who cares? I guarantee you can't tell it's pentile unless you have microscopic eyes! It's a great screen regardless!
a new ballpoint pen????
I thought the next big thing was already here...
It has been about 10 days, right on time for them to release a new Samsung product and abandon the previous ones :)
True that :)
Well according to your comment if the "next" big thing was already here then it would be simply be the big thing. "next" implies something is coming.
It's already here ... in South Korea.
OOPA GANGNAM STYLUS!!!
I love that song!!!
"The stylus slot is going to be on the bottom...Blpssssh"
Greatest comment ever. Almost got me in trouble at work for actually laughing.
All you guys are such whiny babies.
Are you being a whiny baby about folks being whiny babies?
Whiny comment about whiners is whiny.
so does this mean we won't see a mid-october release date for the note 2?
what i meant to say is - do you think this will be the release day, or the day they ANNOUNCE the release date?
They had the SIII get together after the SIII was released here in the states. So it's possible we will hear about release dates from carriers soon.
I suppose it's the SGN2 - I was REALLY hoping (beyond hope) that this would come out in October for Sprint so I wouldn't have to wait another month on VZW.
Like you I think Samsung will announce the next Nexus phone.
Clearly it's the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 after having the Galaxy S3 on Tmobile it's no way I will miss this. I will have both of them and it will be the best of both worlds...
I know the dude who replied to me said Nexus, but I meant the Note 2, since all carriers are to have them by mid November.
It's a Windows Phone!! :)
You guys with this whole screen thing are funny. So serious. On a lighter note, lets hope its the GN2. Im so ready to grab this big ol bad boy
It's quad core. And has jelly bean. I already got to play with it yesterday.
does anybody know when the beam
is coming out
2 days prior to Windows 8 release. Maybe a windows 8 slate of some sort???
im hoping for a Galaxy Nexus 2
We know that already It arrived on Sept 21st and even came with a 4" screen!!!!
that might be a windows phone, like Samsung Ativ Note.
From what I've 'heard' the GN2 should be released on T-Mo the last week of October, so this might make sense. Announce the phone, then immediately sell it.
Why samsung have to do another event, they dont realize is the same people that went to previous event. Just start selling it on oct 24, do now that mean we getting them by dec?
You mean, "What ever could it be?".
Can't believe y'all get paid for this. :-/

It was here, in my hands today : )
Note 2 on deck. So hyped. Even tho I'm getting the next nexus phone.
Most of these people complaining about pentile have probably never even "used" the Note.
I purchased the original Note on day one of its US launch in February, and device is amazing. So amazing that Samsung sold over 10 million devices in one year, and apart from the GS3 (which I also own on Sprint), is considered one of their flagship devices.
The people who purchase, and then use, the Note are in most cases interested in how productive they can be with the device. The Note provides the best all-in-one experience of a smartphone, tablet, and electronic notepad available on the market today.
Practically every reviewer, and many people right here on this site, laughed at the Note when it was first announced. However, time showed that most of the naysayers were wrong. Now, not only is Samsung laughing all the way to the bank, they produced a second generation and will likely sell a lot more than the first.
If you're not one of the buyers; then simply move along.
I don't own a note but agree on all the reasons you stated. I'm very interested in the note. Hoping for it to be Verizon's release!
DUDUES! you highly expect this phone? Deadly wrong.. re-TAKE LOOK -
it's an actual stylus device like PHABLET/NOTE..
