Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs leak, 16:9 screen promised

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is widely expected to be announced at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event at IFA in Berlin on 29 August, and specs have leaked ahead of the event from a Chinese blog which says they are the real deal.

According to the site, the new stylus-controlled phone will feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1280 x 720 resolution and - in a move that is different from the original - feature a 16:9 screen ratio.

Other specs, according to the unofficial report, include a quad-core 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4412 processor, an 8 megapixel camera, and support 3G and 4G LTE networks.

It will of course feature a S-Pen Stylus like the original and be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rather than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung has already teased some details of the Samsung Galaxy Note in the run up to IFA, Europe's largest technology tradeshow in Berlin.

Previous rumours have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch display and run an Exynos quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM.

Pocket-lint will be covering all the latest from IFA when it starts on 29 August.

We will keep you posted.
