Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Note 2 and now people wonder what US carriers will it reach and also look for a release date. While we don’t have information about any launch date on T-Mobile, the guys at Sam Mobile got their hands on some information about the T-Mobile model, fortunately.
According to them, T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 2 is codenamed SGH T889 and they also have a stock Jelly Bean ROM for it, which can be downloaded already, though nobody needs it yet. We already told you that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 will be available at Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular soon and now it’s the time for T-Mobile.
Fortunately, the new phablet is going to reach most major US carriers, so don’t worry about it. The only thing that remains unknown is the release date, though Samsung announced that they will start shipping the device in the US this year, so it shouldn’t take longer than 3 months. But we expect it to start shipping much sooner than December and you might be able to get your hands on it in October, if you are lucky and your carrier moves fast.
Most probably the US version will have the same internals as the international version, because Samsung finally managed to make the quad-core Exynos processor compatible with the 4G LTE chip. So now US customers will be able to enjoy the same processing power as the rest of the world.
If you still don’t know what to expect from the Galaxy Note 2, we can tell you that it sports a 1280x720p HD 5.5-inch Super Amoled display, a 1.6Ghz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP primary camera and a 1.9MP frontal one, comes with either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage, features a 3,200 mAh battery and supports 4G all over the world.
Just like the original Galaxy Note, it comes with an S-Pen and the Premium Suite, which is a pack of applications designed especially for the S-Pen. The Premium Suite allows you to take notes, annotate photos and maps and much more.
The Galaxy Note 2 also comes with the same motion-based features as the Galaxy S3.
