The Galaxy Note successor is gaining increasing popularity. The brand seems to offer a tough competition to the Apple iPhone 5 that is expected to be launched in September.
The latest report is based on the leaked benchmark test. It shows that the device codenamed GT-N7100 has a quad core 1.6 GHz processor. The Galaxy Note that was launched in 2011 was codenamed GT-N7000, so GT-N7100 could be the codename of its successor.
The benchmark test has also revealed another information. The 5.5 inch display of the Galaxy Note 2 is reported to sport a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It also claims that the phablet runs on the Android 4.0.4 ICS operating system.
Except for the screen size, the Galaxy Note 2 is believed to have a design that is inspired by that of the Galaxy S3 smartphone. We can expect the phablet to have rounded edges and pebble like design. The Galaxy Note 2 might have the S features like Smart Stay eye tracking, S Beam and S Voice that are available in Galaxy S3.
