Recent reports have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is already being tested by the South Korean company. This gives an indication that the upcoming successor to the smartphone/tablet hybrid may be nearing its release date.

However if the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be released within the year, it might put it in a collision course with the upcoming iPhone 5 of Apple. Due to this, a number of industry watchers speculated on how the Samsung device will fare against the next-generation iPhone.

One of the main differences between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is its screen size. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, which is much bigger compared to the reported 4-inch screen display of the iPhone 5. Basing on a recent entry on a popular benchmark site, a recently tested Samsung device will feature a quad-core 1.6GHz processor. This device is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which would make it faster compared to the recently-released Samsung Galaxy S3 although it remains uncertain if it will be faster compared to the upcoming iPhone 5.

Speculations have also emerged on the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will still be using the Ice Cream Sandwich Android instead of the much newer Jelly Bean Android OS. Reports have also pointed to the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be introduced during the IFA event that is scheduled to be held on August 30, which will give it a few weeks lead in the market over the iPhone 5, which will reportedly be launched sometime in October.

Some speculations have also emerged on the materials that will be used on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with some hinting at the possible use of premium materials while others have pointed to the possible use of plastic for the upcoming device.

It remains uncertain how the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will perform in the market against the iPhone 5 of Apple although some analysts have already hinted at the possible slowdown in the sales of other devices once the next iPhone is released into the market.
