Pictures of Verizon branded Samsung GALAXY Note II leak
Verizon customers never got a shot at the Samsung GALAXY Note. That turned out to be Big Red's mistake at the phablet sold over 10 million units. While no carrier in the states has yet to officially announce the sequel, there has been speculation that the smartphone with a 5.5 inch screen would be offered by AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.

Some pictures of what is alleged to be the Verizon version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II have leaked and take a look at that home button! As we previously heard, even the home button on the device has Verizon branding. The nation's largest carrier has been making up for missing out on the original Samsung GALAXY Note by recently launching the LG Intuition. The latter is a 5 incher with an aspect ratio of 4:3 which means a device so square never looked so cool (how's that, Madison Avenue?). Then, there is the matter of that rumored 5 inch phablet from HTC, with a 1080p screen.

The Samsung GALAXY Note II is expected to be launched sometime before the end of the year and a "respected source" is calling for an October 21st launch for AT&T which means that we could be about a month away from seeing redemption for Verizon customers/

I can understand the carrier branding on the back, but having the carrier brand on the front home button? I'm sorry, that just looks weird.

Doesn't look right, looks out of place. I'm gonna get mine for AT&T :D

Verizon loves putting their name everywhere on their devices.

Please let it be a sticker

That's what I'm thinking it is. I don't know of any phone that has the carrier branding on it twice.

at least choose either the V or Verizon, not both!

I'm sure that it's a sticker. The other two capacitive buttons have print on them too.

If having a V-branding on the home button gets the Note II released on VZW end of October or early November, 2012, then bring it on!

Why the hell would Verizon but the branding on the home button? What ever happened to putting it near the speaker grill?

I'll stick with being on at&ts network and my note 1, Verizon data plan is utter bulls**t and I got on at&ts older plan before they changed it. One thing that's killing me, does anyone know if note 2 has notification Led, cause damn I really miss that from my DROID x

I'm pretty sure it does. I don't think they'll omit that on a flagship.

Samsung chose or forgot that on the note 1

If they want it to look like the GS3, they would put it on there....

Look at the video in comment 11. Notification light is left of the speaker grill.

It blinks once the entire time, thats not acceptable to stare at a phone for 30 seconds just to determine if a missed call/message is waiting

Use a backlight notification tool from the Android Market (Google Play Sex Store)... turns the hard buttons into a notification led when not in use (but only in white :P)

It appears as though it will, as long as the carriers don't change the design (which it appears lately with the GSIII that they are keeping it the same as the international besides all their branding on it). http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-note-2/204859-led-notification.html

AT&T's plan structures are pretty much the same as Verizon's now.

taco. I heard a rumor that he was allowed back, but he could only vote for postings. Any comments and he would be banned for life.

i have heard nothing. He is banned for life. That I got confirmation of a while ago. But that doesnt mean that stupid troll isnt around here on an alternate account or 3. last time he was banned for a length of time, we found him under many fake accounts.

I've been waiting forever for Verizon to carry the Note so if I have to live with the idiotic placement of their logo on the home button then so be it! Think there's any kind of skin or sticker that could conceal it?

oh I can't wait to get my hands on the note 2. it would be hard to choose between this and the optimus blaze.

i doubt the version that comes to market will have any button branding. i would imagine that just the prototypes have this.
