Yesterday, Samsung began inviting members of the press to its Samsung Mobile Unpacked Event taking place in Berlin, Germany on August 29.  Many rumors suggested the event would announce the successor to the original Samsung Galaxy Note, despite Samsung never explicitly stating so in the event details.

Today, an unnamed Samsung rep confirmed to Reuters that the successor to the Galaxy Note (for the intent of this article, it will be known as the Galaxy Note 2) will be unveiled at the Unpacked event on August 29.

With this rumor essentially out of the way, we can begin to focus on possible launch carriers, price tags, and specs.  As of now, the Galaxy Note 2 is expected to pack a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos processor, 5.5 inch touch screen display, Android 4.0, and S Pen support.  I am personally hoping Samsung manages to debut the Galaxy Note 2 with Android 4.1, but ICS should be a guarantee.

Given the option between the Samsung Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note 2, which is your preferred device?
