U.S. carrier T-Mobile will be offering the Galaxy Note 2 phablet for $299 according to a leak, courtesy retail chain Wal-Mart.
According to reports, the Wal-Mart leak details the pricing of T-Mobile's upcoming smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Windows Phone 8X, Nokia Lumia 810, and LG Optimus L9.
"It's safe to say that many of us are eagerly anticipating some of the newest handsets T-Mobile will let loose into the world in the coming weeks, and with our eagerness comes curiosity over pricing. Thankfully we've managed to answer at least part of the question with an early looking at Walmart's pricing on the Galaxy Note II," reported TmoNews.
The bottom right of the leaked list shows that the Galaxy Note 2 from T-Mobile would retail for $299 at Wal-Mart on a two-year contract.
Wal-Mart's prices are usually less expensive than T-Mobile directly; however, it seems, that $299 could probably be the standardized pricing for the Galaxy Note 2, considering carrier Sprint too announced the same price a few days back. Nevertheless, the pricing could possibly be an initial launch offer and could change in the long term as is the norm.
The similar pricing band is indicative that there may not be much of a difference in prices offered by both carriers and retailers for the Note 2.
The 5.5-inch phablet features a powerful 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. Additionally, the Galaxy Note 2 will come pre-loaded with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Note 2, a follow-up to the original Note, was launched on Sept. 26 in South Korea on three carriers. The Samsung phablet is expected to release on 260 carriers in 128 countries. The phablet hit the UK shelves on Oct. 1 and will be released in the U.S on Oct. 24.
