Samsung has confirrmed it will be launching a Galaxy Note successor on August 29

Samsung has officially confirmed it will be launching a successor model to the popular Galaxy Note smartphone at the end of August.

Samsung previously announced it would be holding one of its ‘Unpacked’ events on August 29 in Berlin, a few days before the IFA expo, but the company has now confirmed to Reuters it planned to ‘unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin’ all along.'

The Galaxy Note was a large form smartphone with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display and support for a stylus, and while critics initially viewed it with suspicion it ended up with plenty of positive reviews and the adoration of many consumers.

Previous rumours surrounding the ‘Galaxy Note 2’ suggested it may included a larger 5.5-inch display with a new kind of reinforced glass so tough it has been cited as ‘unbreakable’.

Speculation suggests it’ll also run the latest build of Google’s operating system, Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and Samsung’s Exynos quad core processor found in the Galaxy S3.

Samsung has another ‘Galaxy’ event scheduled earlier in the month in the US for August 15 and current rumours are pointing towards the Galaxy Note 10.1 launch.

Although, it could also be a rumoured 11.8-inch Galaxy Tab.

The Note 10.1 was previously unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January but the company reportedly took it back into development and things have been very quiet since.
