A 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 allegedly scheduled for October 2012

Samsung scored a huge hit with their Galaxy Note, a combinatio of phone and tablet which was released late last year, featuring a large 5.3 inch screen complete with stylus. To date, some 7 million Galaxy Notes have been sold globally.

It seems that the success has spurred the Koreans to work even harder on a sequel to the popular device, as rumors have surfaced that the Galaxy Note 2 is scheduled to be released this October, exactly one year after the original.

Check out this mockup of the new Note:

The new device will supposedly feature a slightly larger 5.5-inch screen (as opposed to the 5.3 on the original), which will again be of a Super AMOLED variety, and have an even higher WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050 pixels).

Also rumored is an 8MP camera with improved sensor, as well as 1.5 GB of RAM, along with a new Exynos 5250 chipset, featuring a dual-core ARM-15 processor. 4G connectivity will allegedly come standard for all international units.

Never used any Samsung Android phones, so no idea what the button does. To be honest, it flows pretty well with the phone. I'll be switching to a Note 2 from iPhone 3GS as soon as it hits the market in Canada :D

This will be the best phone on the planet until note 3 comes out so won't matter hardware button or not.
