Samsung is due to unveil its Galaxy Note 2 at this week's IFA show in Berlin, but purported details about the tablet have already surfaced online.
Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note 2 will be powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor and offer 4G LTE connectivity, the newspaper added. An 8-megapixel camera will grace the rear. Consumers will also be able to choose between 16GB or 32GB of storage.
Rumoured specs about the larger and faster Galaxy Note 2 initially spilled in June, matching a few, but not all of the features leaked by the Korean paper. The earlier report claimed the tablet would come with a dual-core processor and offer a screen resolution of 1,680x1,050-pixels.
The world will have the officially released details by next week, when Samsung unwraps the Note 2 at IFA 2012, the tablet's first public appearance. IFA 2012 officially kicks off 31 August and runs until 5 September. But special press events will be held over the next few days. Samsung's press event is scheduled for 29 August, which will be live streamed.
