With just over one week to go before announcing the Galaxy Note II, Samsung has released a YouTube video teasing the big reveal.

The short clip makes no mention of the actual device itself, but promises magical moments for the August 29 Unpacked event. Indeed, we do get fleeting glimpses of a new stylus as it is pulled from the phone, but that's about it. Of course, there's plenty of inspiration and wonder to fill out the rest of the 30-second clip.

As a refresher, Samsung is expected to announce a quad-core Galaxy Note successor with a 5.5-inch display. Additional details, such as memory, NFC capability, and which version of Android remain a mystery for now.
