August 29th Samsung will unveil the next Galaxy Note

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release confirmed, speculation can begin on whether it will come running Jelly Bean and could it really have a flexible display?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release has been officially confirmed with Samsung revealing that there would be a Galaxy Note 2 launch at the IFA 2012 tech conference.

Speaking to Reuters the company released a statement saying, "We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29."
