The Galaxy Note 2 which is the most anticipated device to be unveiled at this event has been leaked even before the commencement of the event, thanks to Pocketnow for releasing the official pictures of the Galaxy Note 2.
Pocket now has also published the specifications of the Galaxy Note 2, according to which e device will sport a 1.6GHz quad-core processor (likely an Exynos), 2GB RAM, 16-32-64GB internal storage, an expandable microSD slot, 5.5″ HD Super AMOLED display (1280×720), 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front camera, 3100mAh battery, and will run Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) out of the box.

The Galaxy Note 2 will hit the European lands in October with HSPA+ and LTE radios inside. It will be available in two colors – Marble White and Titanium Grey.
There is a new feature called Air View that “allows users to hover with the S-Pen over an email, image gallery, or video to preview the content without having to open it.” And, just like Popup Play which lets you watch a video while doing another task, Popup Note lets you keep a note on the screen while using another application. There’s also a new feature called Quick Command that is accessed with an upward swipe with the S-Pen; doing so will reveal a menu of quick commands to send someone an email, make a call, or do a search. Finally, the Note II has a Screen Recorder function that lets a user record a demonstration of how to use an application, for instance.
