Samsung Galaxy Note II announced for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular

Samsung Galaxy Note II announced for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular
U.S. availability was one of the last remaining pieces of the Samsung Galaxy Note II puzzle, but that has been thrown on the table already. And it turns out that whichever wireless carrier you are subscribed to, chances are that a flavor of the jumbo-sized smartphone will be available only at a 2-year-contract's distance.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular, as it was just announced by the Korean manufacturer itself. That ought to help Samsung reach and surpass the anticipated milestone of 20 million units sold, which would be twice the commercial success of its predecessor. 4G LTE connectivity on the Galaxy Note II will be available on all models, except the one headed to T-Mobile, which will rely on 42Mbps HSPA+. 

Just like its international version, the U.S. Samsung Galaxy Note II variant will be equipped with a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor clocked at 1.6GHz. Or in other words, once released, it will surely be one of the most potent Android smartphones on the market, especially considering the fact that 2GB of RAM come standard. Delivering all the eye-candy is a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display with resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio. 16GB of on-board storage will be available, in addition to a microSD slot capable of accommodating cards of up to 64GB. The beefy 3,100mAh battery should be well capable of lasting through a day of moderate to heavy usage.

On the software side of things we have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, meaning that users will get the best the platform has to offer right out of the box. Of course, Samsung has thrown in plenty of features and apps taking advantage of that redesigned S Pen, such as Idea Sketch for quick and easy note taking, and Easy Clip for outlining, saving, sharing, and pasting any content displayed on the screen.

While the exact pricing details regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note II are still up in the air, it is stated that the device will launch by mid-November. Further information is to be announced by the respective wireless carriers.

Doesn't matter, I sold my RAZR back in March (cleared 100% profit) for this. I will be there launch day at my local Verizon SOHO store and happily pay out-of-pocket.

OMG, I feel like I am back at the 'Chocolate Factory'!

Just talked to a Verizon rep that told me I should upgrade to the iPhone 5. When I told him i'd rather wait for the Note2, he told me Verizon was not going to get it. I told him it was coming to all 4 major carriers (+ 1 small regional carrier), he said he KNOWS Verizon will not get it. & Well, we don't even have Note1.
what an idiot.... lol

While im happy to see that its coming to Verizon with Jellybean on board it makes me wonder when will we see JB on the Nexus/S3 and pricing. Sounds like this fall its going to be a lot of awesome choices for new smartphones.

I swear the people on this site amaze me. I get thumbed down for wondering on pricing and when JB is coming out for other phones. We all know that there are some people on here who would be complaing if it was not released with JB.

I'd want to see what fluff samsung has added on top of Jelly Bean before recommending or possibly buying it, but it's very encouraging to see it on all the major carriers. Waiting to see what HTC and LG bring to the table as well, as I personally tend to prefer their designs and interface.

I'm with you on that. I want to see what HTC has to offer before I make a final decision. Excited, nonetheless

Cool that it's coming to the top 5 carriers instead of the top 4. But this means that I'll probably have a tough choice when it comes to the end of my current contract, but I'm thinking that I might stick with Sprint.

Your best bet is T-Mobile. Now that they have true unlimited 4G at prices cheaper than Sprint, you'll save money in the long run.

Have to say Day One purchase for me I have been waiting for the ultimate entertainment device that will cover all areas. Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with quadcore 1.6 Exynos processor on Tmobile's gsm hspa plus 42MPS network it will be simply the best battery life ever on any device. This is going to be great...

Well, it's definitely not gonna have the "best battery life ever on any device", but I agree with most everything else you said. Hope you were kidding there.

Well, a rep from U.S Cellular replied to a user on their official Facebook page stating that the Note II is expected to ship by the end of October. So hopefully they are right on that!

When the Note 2 launches, don't go to the carrier stores!!! For the best deal on this phone including trade and save on your old device, the place to go is Radioshack!! We will have this phone for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint on launch day. We transfer all your content (contacts, pics, videos, ringtones, etc.) for free!! We have expert support for free!! And we almost always have a special for all new phones on launch day that beats the carriers. Example, when the SG3 launched, all carrier stores released it at $199.99 new or upgrade, Radioshack had it at $149.99. So trust me come to Radioshack and get your Note 2 when it releases!!!

I have no comment, best luck for everyone supports for this upcoming phablet beast and I would want one for myself by Verizon. Both world of benefits that screen, speed and freedom. I wish a battery life can last up to 12 hours, to power for moderate to heavy use.
