I was looking through some Samsung RDF's this morning and stumbled across a new unannounced phone!

For those that aren't familiar with an RDF they are the development and design specs for a given build on a phone. This one just happens to be for a phone that is not yet out or even announced! EDIT: I have now confirmed with a source of mine that this is in fact the RDF for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2!


Some of the cool things I found in the RDF?
  • Exynos4412 processor
  • 1280x720 resolution
  • Android 4.1.1!
  • Support for EVDO, DOrA, WiFi and LTE!
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB HDD (with expansion slot up to 32 GB)
  • 8 Megapixel camera
  • And more!

Honestly there's a ton of stuff in there and smarter minds than mine should be able to pull more out of it. This early in the RDF process I'm guessing that this is purely an engineering build and may not even be the final specs but still something to keep an eye out for!

Now for the fun stuff! FYI - The RDF is only viewable in Internet Explorer.

Enjoy!

EDIT: Garwynn has pointed out that the Galaxy Note 2 has specs that are identical to that of the RDF. Check out this article from DroidLife for pictures and info.

Its another frequency similar to LTE. I tried to find some reading material and granted there's not much out there but here's some stuff I found.

Funny that you mentioned this. My guess is the Note 2.
Timing makes sense especially with these as context for it:

http://www.tmonews.com/2012/09/samsu...alaxy-note-ii/

It was also announced last week that the Note 2 is coming to the US but no release date was given.

Since we're probably not going to see a rework of the GS3 this year that's the only other possibility.
Specs match it to a T.

You are the man! I totally didn't even think of the Note 2! I've updated the OP to show that as a possibility.

I REALLY hope this is the Note 2. Now the big question. When will it get here??? Will Jelly Bean still even be considered new when we see this phone.

More fuel for the fire... found a link to this on Sprint Communities:

http://www.popherald.com/news_201208...ean_demo-19693

"A source claims that similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the top four carriers in United States will offer the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Verizon Wireless, Sprint and AT&T will reportedly announce their LTE Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in October, and T-Mobile USA’s HSPA+ 3G Galaxy Note 2."
