Update: The above “leak” is the same device image featured in a 9to5Google story from February regarding the Samsung Galaxy S III. Hmmm—one render, multiple devices. Samsung’s PR folks apparently need to organize their harddrives’ photo files a little more efficiently.

Due to be announced at an August 29 press event in Berlin, the Galaxy Note 2 has been leaked on Facebook if Samsung Pakistan is to be believed. As you can see above, this device is big and rocks virtually no bezel. In the first caption on Facebook, Samsung Pakistan noted, “Picture perfect view made even more perfect with Samsung Galaxy S3.” However, as we all know, that looks more like a Note. Fast-forward to an hour later and Samsung quickly took the device down, but re-uploaded it with a caption that read, “Galaxy Note.” Is someone not getting the memo that is supposed to be kept under wraps?

There is another rumor making the rounds this morning, Korea Times reported, claiming the Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch flexible display. While a flexible display does not seem likely to be included, Samsung has been working on flexible displays for quite sometime. I would not put it past them. The publication goes on to claim the new Note will feature Samsung’s Unbreakable Plane technology that allows extra battery space to be freed. For such a large screen, you would think these devices need quite a bit of power.

We will be live in Berlin on Aug. 29 to cover the event, so stay with 9to5Google for the latest.
