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:

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
