Get ready for another Samsung mobile launch. The Korean electronic giant just sent out invites for an October 24th NYC event. And judging by the prominent S-Pen graphic, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is likely the topic.

Giant phone lovers, rejoice. Samsung’s latest is about to hit the states.

The Next Big Thing Is Here, says the invite. And while that’s sort of confusing, since, you know, the Galaxy Note II is actually not here yet. It soon will be.

Per an earlier report, the phablet is scheduled to launch on the top five US wireless carriers by mid-November. That’s just weeks after this press event, likely signaling the Galaxy Note II should be available for pre-order as soon as its announced for the US market.

The 5.5-inch phone/tablet is expected to cost between $249 and $299 with a two-year wireless contract. It utilizes a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen compatible with Samsung redesigned S-Pen. And under the hood it’s looking just as impressive, with a 1.6GHz quad-core proc, 2GB of RAM, and a massive 3,100mAh battery.

It should be a beauty, and a big one at that. As expected, we’ll be at the event with a liveblog fired up and a camera at the ready.
