The South Korean smartphone maker Samsung launched its Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA event in Berlin recently. Rumors indicate that the latest offering from Samsung will be available to consumers on both AT&T and Sprint soon.
A post on XDA developers Web site confirmed to have found a Sprint device profile with specs that match up to Samsung's Galaxy Note 2. The Web site also claimed to have confirmation that Sprint will offer the Galaxy Note 2.
Recent rumors also suggest that the Galaxy Note 2 will be available on AT&T as well. "There are a bevy of screens corroborating the Note II's imminent arrival on AT&T; right now testing is underway, and typically there's a two week turnaround once testing is complete. All we need now is confirmation from the carrier itself," stated a TechnoBuffalo report.
The new Galaxy Note 2 boasts a 5.5-inch super AMOLED screen with 1680x1050 pixels resolution. A powerful quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, with 2GB of RAM, will power the device. The Galaxy Note 2 will sport an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with Auto Focus and LED flash. The device also includes a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and packs in 16GB of on-board storage. A 3100mAh battery will boost the Galaxy Note 2.
In the past, the Exynos processor has been swapped for a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor because of 4G LTE compatibility issues. However, if the screenshots are legit, the Galaxy Note 2 will house a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 processor and maintain LTE connectivity.
AT&T, Sprint, and Samsung have not officially confirmed the above news. However, consumers will be eagerly waiting to see if Exynos is soon made available on carriers that support LTE.
