Well, folks, we have both good and bad news. The good news is that the Samsung Galaxy Note II
has been spotted at the FCC, which, as usual, suggests that the smartphone is getting closer to launch in the U.S.
What spoils everything, however, is that the version that has been granted the FCC's seal of approval, referred to by the model name GT-N7105, appears to be made for the global market. That is because the device does not appear to be compatible with LTE networks of U.S. carriers, according to its FCC filing.
Nevertheless, we expect seeing a Samsung Galaxy Note II model that gets along well with U.S. carriers' LTE networks pretty soon. The smartphone is scheduled for release in October, and we might see it land on the shelves of AT&T
, and possibly even Sprint
. And while you're here, why don't you check out our Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on
