Samsung has released a teaser video showing brief glimpses of its rumoured Galaxy Note 2 smartphone, ahead of a widely predicted launch on Wednesday 29 August.

Tagged with the quote "your magical moments will come alive on 29th August 2012" the teaser video doesn't reveal any specific details of the rumoured device, but shows multiple glimpses of what appears to be a stylus being removed. It also shows what looks like an S Pen drawing on a brightly coloured screen.

The teaser trailer features German film director, photographer, producer and author Wim Wenders and appears to be targeted at creative users.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note, only released in Australia back in March, is best described as either an extra large smartphone or a small tablet. It has a 5.3in screen and includes a stylus called the "S Pen" that allows users to take notes, draw onto the screen and annotate images and PDF files.

Despite initially expected to be a niche device, Samsung announced last week that it has sold 10 million units of the Galaxy Note worldwide. The milestone comes four months ahead of schedule, as the company initially forecasted it would sell 10 million units by the end of 2012.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) consumer electronics trade show in Berlin next week. The second generation Galaxy Note is widely rumoured to come with a slightly larger 5.5in display, up from 5.3in, as well as a faster quad-core processor.

The teaser trailer for the second generation Samsung Galaxy Note can be seen below:

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
