According to a report by the Maeil Business Newspaper in South Korea, Samsung is hard at work on the Galaxy Note 2 and will be announcing it later this year during IFA 2012 which is taking place in Berlin from August 31 to September 5.

According to the report, the Galaxy Note 2 will feature a slightly bigger screen, 5.5-inches compared to the 5.3-inches found on the current Galaxy Note. Despite the bigger screen, the size of the phone will be similar to the current Galaxy Note.

Other specs of the Galaxy Note 2 include a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and an improved camera. According to the source, Samsung is looking to bump the camera’s resolution to either 12 or 13 megapixels.

Unlike previous reports, the MK Business News source is now saying that the Galaxy Note 2 will not feature the new unbreakable plane display technology (UBP), which allows for slimmer a design. Instead, the new UBP display tech will be featured in future Samsung product, possibly the Galaxy S IV?
