Anonymous, 04 Jun 2012Too big. That's what many people said about the original Note
enrichoe, 04 Jun 20125.5 is slightly oversized. 5 would be better with 1280x720p. 8mm thin. 2Gb ram sounds 'even'. ... moreY totally agree with you. New phone is so not that much hotter then previously note. I miss only better battery on mine gadget. Samsung don't do that plasticity crappy phones which shatters on drops...people need reliable phones not bull shitt...
5.5 is slightly oversized. 5 would be better with 1280x720p. 8mm thin. 2Gb ram sounds 'even'. Processor 1.6. 8Mp is not bad but they need to improve sensor. Internal should be 32gb. 4G, nfc, and all that shit.

I am wanting a 180-200 mm (7-8") screen size on my next smart phone. anything else does make the expense of a smart phone with plan worth it in the USA markets. As long as one keeps width close to 125mm (5") with slim bezzel and bigger aspect ratios such a device will serve a large number of users real well.

Model dimension alone attests to that and a larger screen warrants for better firepower from the SoC. In regards to the S III, it's no one's fault except Samsung for putting the 4412 as a quad core A9 w/ an OCed Mali 400 (correct me iiw). Good benchmarks but not much of a real innovation to Qualcomm's S4 Krait at LTE and performance to power usage ratio.
360.21 PPI? Isn't that little high? and I don't mean on drugs. btw i think it will be first phone with cortex a15 or at least first samsung with it

Note has sold over 7 million units, and this will probably not much if all bigger than the Note, as it will have a smaller frame around the display, and probably smaller section around the keys, if any keys at all. Its just .2" increase, thats not much.
So why would the display size be a problem?
Im sure we will start seeing bigger tablets, with Wndows 8. With whats essentially an upscaled mobile OS, there isnt much need for a really big screen.
And you forgot something, the Note sits between two categories of devices so its not incresing on the display size of an android device, as there are a lot of android decives at 10 inch.
I certainly hope the specs aren't true; in that case this device would be a pure slap in the face to everyone who bought the S3... And they really shouldn't increase the screen size, I mean this device can only satisfy a certain share of the market, and I don't recall seeing tablets increase their standard screen size.
Me, 04 Jun 2012No way these specs will evantually make their way into a Note 2 in October. Galaxy S devices w... moreI aint sure about the specs but as far as i believe there would be a NOTE 2 this year. again it depends on the success of S3, provided samsung has done enough sales in the initial 6 months.
Perhaps, success of Note changed the business strategy for Samsung. and more importantly, they need to measure the realtime performance for A-15 before pushing it into the Galasy S flagship.
