Details and pictures of Samsung's Galaxy Note II have been leaked to PocketNow an hour before the device's scheduled announcement at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The tablet-smartphone hybrid resembles an enlarged version of the Galaxy S III, featuring a 5.5-inch, 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED screen. Inside, the device offers an unspecified quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a large 3,100mAh battery and either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage, expandable via microSD.

According to PocketNow, the Note II will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, modified by Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz skin. Users will have a fairly standard choice of cameras, with the device featuring an 8-megapixel rear-facing sensor and 1.9-megapixel shooter on the front, and will, of course, benefit from Samsung's S Pen stylus, first introduced with the original Galaxy Note.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be sold in Marble White and Titanium Grey versions, the latter of which is shown above — no information has yet emerged on availability or pricing. For more details, keep an eye on our IFA coverage throughout the day.
