AT&T appears on this rendering of the Samsung GALAXY Note

Recently, we passed along the speculation that the big screened Samsung GALAXY Note will make its U.S. launch through AT&T. The Stateside variant of the device is allegedly coming with LTE connectivity and an NFC chip. Just before the books closed on 2011, SamMobile received a picture of a rendering for the SGH-I717 which is the U.S. version of the Samsung GALAXY Note, and on top of the device was the famous AT&T logo.

Outside of the LTE connectivity and the NFC chip, the specs between the already launched overseas model and the U.S. model are supposed to be the same including the 5.29 inch WXGA Super AMOLED screen and the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 processor driving the GALAXY Note. 1GB of RAM is aboard with 32GB of native storage included. That can be pumped up to as much as 64GB using a microSD card. The 8MP camera on back has AF and captures video at 1080p (at 30fps). The front-facing camera weighs in at 2MP and is great for self-portraits and video chat.

We could see the AT&T model of the Samsung GALAXY Note as soon as the CES this month. One interesting note (no pun intended) is that the current speculation has the device launching with Android 2.3 as an update is expected to come down the road bringing Android 4.0 for the unit.

completely agree. and i can't understand why they can't leave the hardware button alone. i mean, how can anyone mistake it for an iphone with as big as it is (i assume thats why att has always wanted capacitive buttons)

the international does use an Exynos but what they're saying is that the AT&T version will have a MSM8660 in order for AT&T to use LTE with it because the Exynos 4210 is not LTE compatible.

I want this but sadly dont think i'll get it due to the qualcomm processor....If it were verizon's LTE maybe i could make an exception.

That is odd I hear this will launch in Feb with ICS on board so far everything else has been correct so I'm pretty sure AT&T and Samsung won't screw this up by not putting ICS on it for launch

I thought the international version of the Note utilized an Exynos processor not a Qualcomm processor?

AT&T seems to be getting a lot of good phones, and even then, since they're a GSM carrier, they and T-Mobile have the best selection of phones. Man this is the main disadvantage of Sprint using a CDMA network. Their selection of phones are pitiful compared to AT&T and T-Mobile. -.-
