Samsung Sends Out “Save the Date” for Galaxy Note 2 Event

OK, so the “save the date” doesn’t actually say “Galaxy Note 2” on it, but with that big S Pen showing, we’d be ultra-confused if it were for anything else. So there you have it, Samsung is throwing some sort of party in NYC on October 24 to unveil the “Next Big Thing,” again.

Samsung already announced that the device would arrive in the U.S. by mid-November, so we’re assuming this is simply a kick-off party for the phone. Since they originally announced the Note 2 at IFA in Berlin, it makes sense that Samsung would do something Stateside as well.¬†Hopefully, we’ll hear launch dates.

    Gotta wait then…

    If it is the Note 2 hopefully they lower that contract price but I doubt they will.

  • interstellarmind

    Glad vzw is getting it, but I will definitely be jumping ship to AT&T in order to get it unlocked (plus GSM is the future, right?)

    This is a joke! The phone was announced in august. Then droid-life puts up maybe oct 21st. Now its nov and we have to go through a kick off party for it? As much as I hate apple the one thing they do right is when they announce a phone its out a week or two later. Samsung, get off that cpt lol!!!

  • jay_peter

    The next big thing is already here. Apple unveiled it on September 12.

    • Billis

      Although the iPhone is quite small by comparison.

  • AlexKCMO

    Considering how late it is, could it be for the Galaxy Nexus 2 (assuming it exists)?

  • thats what she said?

  • Matt Cooper

    Any chance this is a windows 8 tablet event?

  • Tim242

    I got to hold it today : ). http://db.tt/VXWwYylq

    And there was much rejoicing.

  • Nick Mondo

    I thought the next big thing was already here???

  • yankeesusa

    I wish it was sooner. I hope it’s not 299. That’s a horrible price point.

  • Upgrade in October and already started saving my money!!! Beer or Galaxy Note 2?

    • jay_peter

      If you want your moneys worth, go for the beer. I wouldn’t waste one cent on a Samsung product.

    • michael arazan

      I really want a decent stylus, like the asus transformer padfone, that writes and answers calls, but i need one for my Gnex. Hope samsung Note 2 is a good stylus and syncs with all sammy’s phones.

  • Damu793

    galaxy note2 verizon pls!!

  • Michael

    I’m betting 299.00 on contract….now if I can just figure out what to do with SIII I just got a month and half ago…..?

    • Sell it man, use it to get you that subsidized price.

  • MKader17

    Sweet! I can’t wait for them to introduce a phone with no release date!

  • Go Hawkeyes

    Please oh please oh please hit Verizon soon and if the bootloader is locked (likely) allow the GS3 method to work or something similar!

  • fanboy1974

    Does anyone believe that this will be under $300 on contract?

    • T4rd

      No pricing announced from any carriers yet. I would expect it to be $250 on contract though.

      • jtseals

        Actually you can pre order the note 2 from us cellular on there website for 299 says its scheduled to ship out at the end of October not that I really care till it comes to verizon but some people may like to know

  • Matthew Morrison

    Great device! Awesome Device!!! very accomplished….. now where’s the nexus?

    • yarrellray

      I’m loving this unlimited data usage on my Galaxy S3 on Tmobile it’s simply wonderful. Yes day one purchase for me without question. I will own both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 with jellybean straight out the box and unlimited data. It’s going to be great i must say.. Thank god I kicked Verizon to the curb in June cause there versi√≥n of the Galaxy Note 2 will launch with all thatcrappy branding rendering the device useless. Tmobile and Sprint as well as At&t will keep the elegance of the device..

  • MikeSaver


  • I hope it reaches Verizon this time. I might get one just for kicks.

    • fanboy1974

      I thought Samsung already confirmed it was coming to Verizon. The question is when and for how much.

      • zepfloyd


        • Definitely coming to Verizon, probably for $299.

          • KT

            what do you think the retail price will be? I’ve seen rumors that it’d be $800.

          • nwd1911

            That’s my fear for all us off-contract-pricing-to-save-unlimited-data folks.

          • Doubt it.. I’d guess 550 or 650. I hope so, since I have to buy it off contract as well to save my unlimited.

          • Chuck Finley

            Verizon’s full retail is usually lower at launch than other places (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc…), any guess on what this one will be?

          • jtseals

            I would guess 299 to only because its up for pre order right now on us cellular for 299

  • Despyse

    So close… but SOOO far…

  • KleenDroid

    Oh my…

    • J. Gilbertson

      still not amazing?
