While "The Next Big Thing" was unveiled at IFA in August (check out our hands-on here), it seems that Samsung has started sending out press invites for an exclusive launch in New York on the 24th of October. The press invite showcases a picture of a stylus, which gives us a lot of reason to suspect that "The Next Big Thing" is indeed the Galaxy Note II.
The device arrived in South Korea yesterday with Samsung confirming that it would be rolled out to 128 countries via 260 carriers. The date also coincide with Samsung promising to bring the phablet to "U.S. and UK starting in October." Either way, this bodes well for us Singaporeans, given that the Galaxy Note 10.1 was unveiled shortly after its official unveiling in New York.
