Samsung is expected to announce the all-new Galaxy Note 2 at its Samsung Unpacked event at IFA on Aug. 29. Ahead of the expected announcement, Seoul Newspaper claims to have its hands on the official specs for the phablet. According to the publication, the Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch 1,280-by-720 display, as previously rumored, as well as a 1.4 GHz quadcore Exynos processor, 8-megapixel shooter, 3G/4G connectivity, 16GB/32GB variants and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. …Pretty much on tap with what we heard. Check out the leaked spec sheet:

The paper further adds that the rough edges appearing on the original Galaxy Note model will be more rounded. You can see the image leaked by Samsung Pakistan on its Facebook page above the break, which originally had the caption “Galaxy Note 2.” Interestingly, the same render appeared amongst Galaxy S III rumors earlier this year. The device render does feature rounded edges, just like the other leaks we have seen, which certainly makes it compelling.

Of course, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to feature the signature stylus. We are a little skeptical of the rumor that the new Note will include Jelly Bean instead of Ice Cream Sandwich, so we will file that along with the rumor that Samsung will use flexible screen technology for the device.

At any rate, all of our speculation will hopefully end Wednesday. Stick to 9to5Google for all your IFA coverage, as we will be on the ground in Berlin!
