Fans of the original Samsung Galaxy Note will be happy to know that its successor is right around the corner. More specifically, the new Galaxy Note will be announced on August 29 at Samsung’s Unpacked event taking place in Berlin, Germany. While the name of the successor is unknown, my bet is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, since Samsung keeps their naming conventions for flagship devices simple (i.e. Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy S III). The confirmation report comes from Reuters who was in contact with a Samsung rep. The rep informed Reuters that the Galaxy Note 2 is going to be announced on August 29 with its official launch taking place a few weeks after. Here’s to hoping the Galaxy Note 2 makes its way to the United States sooner, rather than later and launches on more than two carriers. Sprint and Verizon Wireless presumably want to get in on the phablet fun as well, Samsung!
