August is officially Samsung Galaxy Note month


Samsung has two new Galaxy devices slated to be revealed this month, and we have good reason to believe both will be a part of the Note family.

On August 15th, Samsung Electronics America will be holding an event to celebrate “the unveiling of the next Galaxy device.” There’s good reason to believe the event will be held to showcase the Galaxy Note 10.1 for the US.

Originally detailed back at Mobile World Congress, the Note 10.1 has yet to surface in the US. According to Cnet, the division of Samsung that originally sent save the date notices for the August 15th event usually deals with non-smartphone releases. Not only that, but Samsung doesn’t seem to be making a big splash about this event. Which would make sense for a device that was already revealed some five months ago.

Two weeks after the August 15th event, Samsung has announced today it will be hosting a Samsung Unpacked event on August 29th, in Berlin. Samsung reserves Unpacked events for their biggest announcements. The only device capable of garnering this much attention from Samsung is the highly anticipated Galaxy Note II.

Rumored to launch with a 5.5-inch display, 12-megapixel camera and in both dual-core Snapdragon and quad-core Exynos configurations, the Note II is easily the biggest Android device launch we currently have on our radars.

Hopefully, with the Note II being announced in late August, we’ll see the device released in the US before the end of the Holiday season. If so, it would be competing with the newest model of the iPhone, possibly the Droid Razr HD and a rumored five Nexus device from a slew of manufacturers. This fall is going to be great for mobile competition.
