Samsung Galaxy Note passes FCC certification with AT&T bands
Has the Samsung Galaxy Note captured your mind and imagination with its gigantic 5.3-inch display and S Pen? Good news for you then - the Galaxy Note has just passed FCC certification, so it’s one step closer to getting released on... AT&T stateside. The Note was approved with GSM 850/1900MHz and WCDMA II and IV bands support - an exact match for AT&T’s 2G and 3G frequencies in the US. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the carrier will indeed offer the handset, but now its US launch is a real possibility.

Samsung Galaxy Note passes FCC certification with AT&T bands
The Samsung Galaxy Note features a huge 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. You can use it not only for traditional finger input, but also with the built-in S Pen for drawing, sketching your thoughts or just to highlight something.

Under the hood, the Note is powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. You can store your data on the 16GB of internal memory. It also features an 8-megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p footage and an additional 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

thats exactly the problem with the US carriers. unlike most other countries where your phone is never locked by default, here you're forced to play the rules by these greedy and selfish carriers. especially most of the good phones end up in the worst carrier's hands. you know who

No. And you wouldn't want it to be LTE. The LTE version has the Snapdragon processor in place of the 1.4 Ghz Exynos (which is even faster than the GSII stock).

As a side note, the article should mention that its an Exynos processor clocked at 1.4ghz, an unless I missed it, it didnt mention the 720p screen either... the phone is a monster.

rip off TW, throw on pure ICS and that is the beast of beasts.

I'm confused. AT&T is disabling data service for Note owners. Does this mean they're going to turn it back on now? Reason for disabling service on Note is because it's getting classified as a tablet instead of smartphone by AT&T

Where do you see that data service is disabled for the device? If it is, XDA will remedy that.

Uh, I would doubt that would happen unless they tore out the earpiece and all phone capabilities. If it has phone functionality they have to offer some kind of phone plan.

I thought it was comming to AT&T with LTE, HSPA+, and ICS in Feb and no buttons on the front and didn't the Note pass the FCC with these bands already?

First of all, who said it was coming in Feb with ICS and no buttons? Secondly, it passed through the FCC but that was more of an international version. This one has specific AT&T bands versus the pentaband on the international one.

I've got little birds but looks like you know better so what about LTE I hope it does come sooner than feb I got some birds to stomp

No LTE. AT&T LTE runs on the 700mhz spectrum and that seems to be missing from here. It may indeed come February, but I was more so asking where you got the idea of buttonless and ICS. I mean both would be a welcome addition, I was just looking for a source instead of someone's wishing it has that. I have been trying to keep track of this phone for a while. And I'm dying to get it. Also, I have posted in a previous comment you wouldn't want the LTE version because the LTE version uses Snapdragon instead of Exynos and the old Adreno 205 GPU instead of the Mali 400. I am hoping this comes out end of this month or beginning of next, but then again that could also be wishful thinking.

I know some people who work for AT&T but they aren't totally reliable they told me about the SG2 on AT&T back july they said it would be 4.5 display LTE and called the Attain it didn't come out until last month and they didn't know about two versions, or that it would be 5month later for it's release, and had wrong name but they were close with the skyrocket just not the SG2 I hope they are right about the Note though and LTE will be on it maybe it will get a better processor

Well, it doesn't look like it would be a better processor unless they released a new Exynos in it. I mean there is some noticeable lag with the 1.5 GHZ Snapdragon. Not to mention the battery hog it would be if it was LTE. I think right now LTE technology is like when 3G technology first came out. It was a battery hog and it was bulky. Maybe 2 years from now LTE phones will be more efficient.
