Samsung Galaxy Note II spotted at the FCC

Samsung Galaxy Note II spotted at the FCC
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, Verizon, and possibly even Sprint. And while you're here, why don't you check out our Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on?

So if the Galaxy Note II is to have a quad-core but the Exynos is incompatible with U.S. 4G LTE, does it mean it will get Qualcomm's insanely BEASTLY quad-core S4 Pro with Adreno 320 clocked at 1.5 to 1.7GHz? Wow if that happens that would make the phone EVEN better than originally developed because the quad-core S4 Pro kills the quad-core Exynos 4. If that happens the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be the phone I get this year PERIOD! I CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT!!!!

Personally, I think the phablet contest between Sammy and HTC will be more interesting than the iPhone 5 - the specs sound amazing. Unless there is a surprise about the chipset or camera on the iPhone 5, it is just an incremental upgrade to the 4S.
