Samsung flaunts Galaxy Note 2 in new video starring Wim Wenders

Want to get a look at Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Note?

With just two weeks to go before Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event, the South Korean company has posted a video to its YouTube channel hyping up what it intends to unveil. Though the video doesn't explicitly mention the Galaxy Note 2, it appears to offer up a first glimpse of the much talked-about device.

The 38-second video shows the edge of the device with a silver trim and gives a brief peek at the new S-Pen stylus. It also features film director Wim Wenders talking up "all the things you can do in the blink of an eye and with such a small and light thing."

But if you're looking for details you're going to have to wait a little longer.

Samsung earlier this month confirmed that it will unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at its Unpacked event, which takes place on 29 August at the IFA conference in Berlin. The last big Unpacked event was in May in London and included the launch of the Galaxy S3 smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to include a 5.5in display, which is slightly larger than the current one, along with a faster processor and improved camera. Samsung's Berlin event kicks off at 19:00 local time (18:00 BST). ITProPortal will be there, so stay tuned for all the details
