A sequel to Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note has been expected for quite sometime, but all of our speculation can finally end today. Samsung confirmed with Reuters late last night that the sequel to the original Galaxy Note will be announced at Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked event on August 29 in Berlin.

That is just two weeks before Apple announces its new iPhone, and many expect it to announce a slightly bigger 7.85-inch tablet.

A Samsung spokesperson stated: “We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29.” So, what can we expect? Samsung has not said anything official, but several reports indicated Samsung would include a larger 5.5-inch screen (0.2 inches larger than the original Note).

In May, Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S III that sold a whopping 10 million units in July alone. The new Galaxy Note should also be popular. It is assumed to hit European markets first and then the U.S. It is sad the original Galaxy Note is just landing on T-Mobile, especially when the sequel is just a month away from being introduced. Nonetheless, our very own Jordan Kahn will cover the event live from Berlin. Keep it locked to 9to5Google.
