With the second-generation Galaxy Note set to steal the show, Samsung was said to be preparing to unveil a host of other mobile devices at the Unpacked event that is supposedly scheduled to kick off at 7pm.
Citing “undisclosed industry sources,” recent reports via MK Business News suggested “Samsung is in the midst of developing a large-screen smartphone model with displays exceeding five inches.” The reports went on to name the device as the “Samsung Galaxy Note 2.”
