Oh God They're Actually Making the Galaxy Note Bigger?

Illustration for article titled Oh God Theyre Actually Making the Galaxy Note emBigger/em?

You already thought Samsung's Galaxy Note was too big, right? Suitable only for use by elephants? Well rumor has it that the plan is to make it even bigger.

Currently the Note features a mere 5.3 inches of screen on the diagonal. According to MK Business that is not enough for Samsung. Instead, MK Business suggests that the company is planning to launch an update, called the Note II, in October with a 5.5-inch screen. They also suggest that it might feature a quad-core processor and 12-megapixel camera.

Whatever. The important thing to take on board here is that the rumor suggests that the current Note isn't big enough. What. The. Hell? The thing barely fits in a pocket as it is. Make it any bigger and you'll need a wheelbarrow to transport the thing.

Of course, the rumor might be complete nonsense—and here's hoping it is—but if it's not, then get your hands limbered up for some extreme stretching. [MK Business via Phandroid via Verge]

So you write on a tech blog. It must have at least occurred to you, especially with the photo you picked, that they might make the screen bigger but the dimensions would stay the same, kind of like Nexus vs. SGSIII ?

So, if I am correct, and the chances are good that I am based on their existing efforts, every point you made in this article is just moot?

And the whole "does not fit in a pocket thing" is only valid if you are super hipster with skinny jeans - something you guys should bitch about more than large phones.
