Galaxy Note 2 Prematurely Unveiled by Samsung Pakistan
Samsung Pakistan might have prematurely unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as a picture of a device posted on its website matches up to the rumored specs of the smartphone-tablet hybrid.
It claims that the device in the picture is a Samsung Galaxy S3, however, by a quick glance anyone can tell that this clearly is not that handset.
Samsung Pakistan notes, "Picture perfect view made even more perfect with Samsung Galaxy S3."
One hour after posting up the picture and writing this message the site quickly took it down and re-uploaded it with a caption that read, "Galaxy Note."
The device in the picture looks more like the Galaxy Note and features a display with nearly no bezel space. The next-generation Note is expected to have a larger screen, but be the same size as its predecessor, so this device matches up to those facts.
Korea Times also reported on the Galaxy Note 2 today, stating that it will feature a 5.5-inch flexible display. The publication states that the new Note will feature Samsung's Unbreakable Plane technology that allows extra battery space to be freed.

Other rumored specifications for the device include Android 4.1, JellyBean and an HD display.
An official Samsung representative recently confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be unveiled at the company's "Unpacked" event scheduled to take place in Berlin on Aug. 29.
This event was announced by Samsung last week and the representative also told Reuters that the public will receive a first-look at the next-generation model of the smartphone tablet hybrid.
The Galaxy Tab 11.8 is also expected to be unveiled there.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be re-introduced on Aug. 15 as Samsung has reportedly made some changes to the device.
