News is coming in that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may feature the upcoming Android 5.0 operating system, also known as Jelly Bean.
Samsung is supposedly prepping the device for an October launch in order to compete with the upcoming Apple iPhone 5. The company reportedly thinks that by releasing the smartphone/tablet with Android 5.0 it would do better in the market against the newest model from Apple. Google is expected to announce Jelly Bean at its I/O developer conference next week. Until that time, not much is know abut OS 5.0, other than it might include a new voice-control system.
The Galaxy Note 2 is also rumored to sport an unbreakable plane (UBP) display. While earlier rumors called for a flexible display, the UBP display will allow for a thinner glass which will give more space for the internal parts that will be featured in the device. The unbreakable touch-screen is an earlier version of Samsung’s flexible display technology.
