Samsung releases Galaxy Note 2 teaser video

Samsung builds hype before Galaxy Note follow-up launch

Samsung has released a teaser video of the Galaxy Note 2 smartphone ahead of its launch.

The video is a teaser for Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event which will take place in Berlin on 29 August before the IFA technology show. It's not been confirmed but it's highly likely Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 2 since we know it will be the follow-up to the Galaxy Note. See alsoSamsung leaks Galaxy Note 2 image?

As usual the teaser video gives little information as to what the device will look like or its specifications, showing only close up glimpses of the screen. The focus of the piece is on the stylus which is clearly shown a number of times.

"When magical moments come alive, everything becomes an inspiration," says the video.

"All the things you can do in the blink of an eye, with such a small and light thing," director Wim Wenders says. "Anybody can do it."

The only confusion here is the suggestion of a small device since the original Galaxy Note had a 5.3in screen and the Galaxy Note 2 is tipped to have an even larger 5.5in display, pushing it even close to tablet size.

All will become clear next week at Samsung's event so stay tuned for the latest.
