Description

This phone is AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy Note. It is coming with LTE connectivity and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. The other 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. 1GB of RAM is aboard with 16GB of native storage included. That can be pumped up to as much as 48GB 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 for self-portraits and video chat.

Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
