Wait, didn't they already debut the Note 2 in the states?

tommydaniel says:

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!

cashxx says:

Yaay we are going back to the 90s again with another stylus device!!

Uncle Louie says:

Clever!

Most touchscreens come with a stylus. It's called your finger. :)

Qoheleth says:

The stylus is a bit of a give-away isn't it?

justinangil says:

Obviously a 7" Phablet.

pmjj says:

Yaaaa a 7" Phablet!!! lol

hmmm says:

Until the next big thing doesn't have a Pentile screen I don't care much. You can tell, even on a 720p screen.

tommydaniel says:

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.

faceless says:

It's RGB Matrix. It's not RGB Stripe, but it's also not Pentile Matrix.

brucewayne says:

All Samsung SAMOLED are Pentile, exception being SAMOLED+ which the Note II isn't. Or did I miss something?

zachavm says:

You missed something. Samsung changed it up. See my post above.

aloya82 says:

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

klokateer123 says:

^^ what he said. its a hd super amoled screen :D

heyjb28 says:

Who cares? I guarantee you can't tell it's pentile unless you have microscopic eyes! It's a great screen regardless!

uofmike says:

a new ballpoint pen????

triangle8 says:

I thought the next big thing was already here...

doz says:

It has been about 10 days, right on time for them to release a new Samsung product and abandon the previous ones :)

True that :)

buckshotzero says:

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.

faceless says:

It's already here ... in South Korea.

shaytoon21 says:

OOPA GANGNAM STYLUS!!!

MERCDROID says:

I love that song!!!

justinangil says:

"The stylus slot is going to be on the bottom...Blpssssh"

Grndlvl says:

Greatest comment ever. Almost got me in trouble at work for actually laughing.

briankurtz79 says:

All you guys are such whiny babies.

Are you being a whiny baby about folks being whiny babies?

Whiny comment about whiners is whiny.

uluaz says:

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?

tommydaniel says:

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.

wshwe says:

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.

joeln0671 says:

Nexus Phablet!

NickA says:

It's a Windows Phone!! :)

trenchkato says:

Lol zing

TheDonJ77 says:

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

flashpanda says:

It's quad core. And has jelly bean. I already got to play with it yesterday.

TOUGHLX says:

does anybody know when the beam
is coming out

trenchkato says:

.

mikryd says:

2 days prior to Windows 8 release. Maybe a windows 8 slate of some sort???

Acelx says:

im hoping for a Galaxy Nexus 2

We know that already It arrived on Sept 21st and even came with a 4" screen!!!!

pauloducut says:

that might be a windows phone, like Samsung Ativ Note.

severinj says:

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.

jnmigr says:

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?

tailsthecat3 says:

You mean, "What ever could it be?".

Can't believe y'all get paid for this. :-/

Whatever.

And I'll ask you to keep your punctuation inside your quotation marks, please.

tim242 says:

It was here, in my hands today : )

Irvgotti says:

Note 2 on deck. So hyped. Even tho I'm getting the next nexus phone.

DAS says:

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!
