Here's some promising news for your Friday the 13th: according to Korean news source Digital Daily, Samsung has scheduled its Unpacked 2012 Episode 2 event for August 30th in Berlin, Germany - and the Galaxy Note 2 is said to be the star of the show.
For the unaware, Samsung holds Unpacked events to unveil its newest flagship devices - like the Galaxy S III, which was announced at the first Unpacked event earlier this year. According the DDaily, we'll hear about the Note 2 this go around, which is said to be sporting some pretty impressive specs, including a 5.5" display with smaller bezel so the device itself is roughly the same size as its predecessor. The Note 2 is also rumored to have the same 1.5 GHz quad-core Exynos processor that's found in the GSIII, though it could also sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon in some markets (again, not unlike the Galaxy S III). Basically, it sounds like an oversized version of the GSIII; perfect for anyone who wants to power of the S III with the S-pen and gargantuan form factor of the Note.
Of course, while sources like this have been spot-on in the past, this new information should be taken with a certain amount of skepticism given its "rumor" status. That said, we won't be surprised at all if we're welcoming a new Note into the Android world at the end of August.
