Sadly what the source didn't reveal is what specs we can expect from the Note S, although it did confirm that it will come with Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich – but by that time we'd hope to see ICS on the original Note anyway.
There's more than a little bit of a fishy odour around this rumour aside from its lack of detail - and the Note is barely out of short trousers itself, so it seems a bit soon to be pushing a sequel. We may well see a minor upgrade to the Note announced at MWC but we won't be holding our breath.
Samsung just spent a serious chunk of change on a Superbowl advert pushing the Galaxy Note – the main USPs it highlighted were the stylus (It's got a pen!), the front-facing camera and the fact that it isn't an iPhone.
