Samsung Galaxy Note II rumored to be coming to T-MobileAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
It wasn't even a month ago that the Samsung Galaxy Note made its way to T-Mobile, but it appears that a T-Mobile-flavored version of the Note II could be on the way. Our friends at TmoNews have gotten hold of a screenshot from a device that appears to be running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and identifies itself as the Samsung SGH-T889, which is a slight step up from the original T-Mo Galaxy Note's model number of SGH-T879. There's also a user agent profile that belongs to the SGH-T889 that's been discovered on Samsung's site, and the page lists the T889 as being an Android device with a screen resolution of 720x1280, which matches up with the Galaxy Note II that was announced last month. Finally, TmoNews claims that the T-Mobile Galaxy Note II will feature an Exynos processor and 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity.
While obviously this is all still very much a rumor at this point, it's worth noting that we saw the first T-Mobile Galaxy Note leak out in a very similar manner months before it was released. Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note II will be making its way to the U.S. later this year, but so far the company has yet to name any carriers that'll be launching the device. Considering that the original Note has already hit T-Mobile and the fact that Samsung spread the Galaxy S III to all of the major U.S. carriers, though, a T-Mobile Galaxy Note II doesn't seem out of the question. As usual, we'll bring you more details as we get 'em. Any of you T-Mobile folk think that you'd be willing to open your wallet for the Galaxy Note II?
