Questions about the Sprint Galaxy Note II answered in an enigmatic fashion, quad-core with LTE confirmed
One leaky insider, who often discloses what Sprint has in store in forum posts, and has a proven track record with several devices already, has made a thread about the upcoming Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II handset. 

We already saw a Sprint device profile that matches the Note II specs closely, but the insider actually asked readers to send him questions about the device that he doesn't want to state explicitly he has handled, yet is chock full of information about. The intro is literally: "Well..I have "bad" news. The guy didn't show. Very 'unfortunate'... ;) Had he shown up, he would have told me a bunch of stuff I "could not" share...and he would have let me hold a device 'I couldn't tell you about' ;);)"

Here's the full scoop of what he could reveal about the upcoming Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II monster:



So, all the enigmatic "had he showed up" and winking aside, we might be finally looking into a quad-core phone with LTE baseband radio attached, and those Quadrant and AnTuTu scores confirm it will be a beast. As for release date, reading between the lines reveals a possible Q4 announcement, with a release some time early next year.

I hope a similar-spec'd Note is headed to VZW.

From what I am reading around the web, it looks very likely that Verizon IS getting the Samsung Galaxy Note II with all the goodies listed here. Exynos quad-core & LTE. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Too bad the Note II for T-Mobile and AT&T have been confirmed to have a quad-core Exynos chip.

www.tmonews.com/2012/09/samsung-sgh-t889-coming-to -t-mobile-as-the-galaxy-note-ii/ www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-GALAXY-Note-II-abo ut-to-launch-on-AT-T-according-to-leaked-screensho ts_id34238#1- I shouldn't have said 'confirmed' since info hasn't came from the carriers themselves, but Tmonews is spot on with leaked info and with sources saying that the AT&T model will support LTE, level of acceptance is high.

Until I see a build prop or something that proves exynos quad, im going to remain skeptical. The alternate is that its an S4 pro-Quad, which would be a logical jump since it is HSPA42 and LTE capable. For once, it would be an acceptable trade off. Or they could surprise us with an LTE E5 dual, but thats super unlikely lol

This would be a nice device to help the Now Network get noticed. Even if they shared it with Verizon, at least they don't fall behind.

why even worry about all that stuff, hell sprint doesn't even have LTE up, correct that, there is maybe 4 or 5 states that have it. so we really can't experience its true speed.

It really would have been nice if the guy would have shown and this dude would have been able to provide an image code link that didn't that the photo was of a GalaxySIII Dummy Unit in the URL. Even though it's obviously not a GSIII, it diminishes credibility when little things like that are over looked. Still glad to see some next to official confirmation from a reliable source.

Dear sprint leak guy, I'm going to laugh when PA is required by law to hand over your IP address. If you are reading this you aren't a team player and should be fired immediately. Snitches get stitches.

In this space Samsung rules and especially on Tmobile. I love my pebble blue Galaxy S3 she's my baby no question. But the big brother will be purchased on day one without question. Having both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 is having the best of both worlds...
