The original Galaxy Note model.

A recent report suggests the Galaxy Note successor will début with a slightly larger display at a popular consumer electronics show in Europe next month.

According to Maeil Business Newspaper, the Galaxy Note 2 will boast a 5.5-inch display, which is .2-inches larger than the original model, and it will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. A quad-core Exynos processor will give the phablet a performance boost, and its rear-facing camera will see an upgrade from 8-megapixels to 12- or 13-megapixels.

“Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 2 during the IFA 2012, a consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany in late-August,” reported South Korea-based Maeil, while quoting a source “familiar with the matter.”

According to translated report from MK News (via TNW), Samsung is in development on the industry’s first smartphone without a bezel. Referred to in the report as the “Galaxy B,” the device will apparently have no bezel on three sides of the display with just a small bezel at the top to hold the earpiece and camera. The device will apparently pack a large AMOLED display, but there is no specific mention of Android or other specs. We most likely will not see much from Samsung at Mobile World Congress later this month, because the company confirmed it would not hold press events. However, some are speculating the “Galaxy B” codename could eventually be the Galaxy S III. The report said Samsung plans to launch the bezel-free smartphone during the second or third quarter of 2012.
