Phablet enthusiasts on Verizon may have a reason to celebrate as recently leaked images show a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Verizon brand logo.
"The white device is aesthetically identical to the version straight from Samsung's house, save for its questionable carrier-branding. While the back of the phone sports a seemingly legit 'Verizon 4G LTE' logo along with its moniker, you'll notice a rather obnoxiously-planted 'Verizon' logo on its home button," reports Engadget.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA event in Berlin this year. The company did not hold back while providing high-end hardware on the Galaxy Note 2. The phablet boasts a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. A 1.6GHz Exynos processor with 2GB of RAM powers the device. The Galaxy Note 2 sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and is thinner than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note, at a slim 9.4mm.
The device comes with the Note's signature S-Pen stylus and supports Near Field Communication (NFC). The Galaxy Note 2 will be available in 16/32/64GB versions and users will have the option to expand the memory to up to 64GB using a microSD card.
Samsung announced that Galaxy Note 2 will arrive in the U.S. by the end of the year, but has not provided a confirmed launch dates. Speculations also suggest that the Galaxy Note 2 will be available on major carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular.
Phablet enthusiasts will be eagerly waiting for an official launch of the Galaxy Note 2. If the phablet is offered by major carriers then consumers will be even happier as the need to switch carrier will be eliminated.
