When I picked up a Note in the shop the other day I was surprise at just how 'large' it felt and it looked..
I had the GS2 then and it looked cheaper, felt cheaper and was just plain uncomfortable to hold...

I honestly didn't expect that - from the videos, pictures, etc. I expected it just to be 'slightly' bigger GS2...

This news however is very interesting...
I actually don't think it'll have much more of a tech-increase than the GS3 - they wouldn't want to overshadow it too much, nor too soon if September is correct...

Making it narrower however is an excellent move... I noticed the bezel around the screen of the Note 1 to be disproportionately wide... so there's definite scope to sort that out...

5.5" though? Wow. That's quite a beast...

I was waivering in terms of going for a GS3... but I'm now going to wait until September or at least August (when the previews should be out) to see how this turns out...

Incidentally, I'd be surprised if they copy the GS3's design too much too - again, I doubt they want to confuse the market, nor create something too similar to their flagship...

Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for it to come to Sprint soon.

This sounds interesting, lets keep rumors aside. If it releases with new GPU and A15 chipset then its no less than Galaxy S4. Was expecting this spec for S3, nevertheless fingers crossed.

apple fans please buy Iphone5.
you cannot operate this monster Note2.
You dont buy Samsung latest smart phone, you earn it !

it should be in a quad-core processor, 12mp camera, thinner than the galaxy s3 and packed with the latest android 4.1 jelly bean.

Screen ratio of 16:9 instead of 16:10 and you have a narrower device.

Amazing, cannot wait to see what it brings to the table. Maybe it will have the cortex A15 architecture instead of the A9, and a better design hopefully.
