If you are really looking to upgrade your Note 2, why not wait for the Note 3 instead of getting what will be a "refurb", remodleed with a different processor. No thanks - my Note 2 is fine as it is. It is not slow, therefore see no need for this unecessary revamp!
If this upgraded Note 2 has 4.2.2, then why they haven't released the same for other models of Note 2.
JACK SPARRROW, 29 Jul 2013I have the note 2 and i dont see the purpose of introducing this new model.Purpose: to milk money from fanboys
the.calm.critic, 29 Jul 2013Even if this is just a CN rel and no disrespect to would be Chinese adopters but I'm gonna ask... moreI actually think it could make a lot of sense if they release it everywhere. Rumor has it, of course, that Samsung is waffling among different screen sizes for the Note 3, which means they're conflicted as to which size would be best. By releasing an updated Note 2 (for a discount, of course) alongside the Note 3, they could go with a bigger 5.9" or 6.0" display on the Note 3 without turning off anyone who might like a Note with decent specs but thinks 5.5" is big enough.
Even if this is just a CN rel and no disrespect to would be Chinese adopters but I'm gonna ask this anyways... Why?
With Note III's imminent rel just barely a couple of months away (and remember it's rumored to come w/ either the latest Exynos 5420 OR Snapdragon 800!), how many ill informed luddites will fall for this?
A pretty d-move on Samsung's part.
Gee, 29 Jul 2013You really have no idea do you. lol no he doesn't, but this does hurt note 2 owners...
well, i get the idea, but i don't really like it, as other note 2 owners wont probably...
so please take that into consideration also
Dr.Z, 29 Jul 2013Samsung wants to sell as many note2craps unsold in warehouses as it can before releasing note3.kk thats a stupid comment the ones in the warehouse wont have s600....
If they upgraded the cpu, why not also the display with full hd lcd solux, and ir blaster too, so no need to wait for the gnote 3.
We're waiting for the update for our gnote 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my point is valid, 29 Jul 2013this will damage the sales of note 3Hardly believe that would happen. Its Samsung. They said, they expected to sell 60Million+ S4s. We all were quiet astonished how in the world they will do so but as we are seeing they announced different variants(which obviously will frustrate old S4 customers). Possibilities are seeing right now as it could make its assumption true.
Its Samsung anyways, no body does better spam than them.
my point is valid, 29 Jul 2013this will damage the sales of note 3Doubt it, if it's exclusive to the Chinese market then it is unlikely this model with deteriorate the sales of the Note III.
