Samsung SGH-T879 is hinted to be T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy Note
T-Mobile customers might want to listen up, because from the looks of it all, you might be seeing a Samsung Galaxy Note variant very soon. Well, that’s exactly what’s believed to be the case after a recent FCC filing sheds some light on the possibility of it happening.

Of course, AT&T customers have been relishing the super large smartphone for some time now, but it seems that T-Mobile customers are poised to experience the same thing. Specifically, a filing for the Samsung SGH-T879 recently made its appearance over at the FCC, bearing the all too conspicuous compatibility with the 1700MHz AWS CDMA band – thus, making it a likely candidate for being T-Mobile bound.

Combining its recent approval over at the FCC and that AT&T’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Note has the SGH-i717 model number, this is looking more like a T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Note. Well folks, that’s all the information that can be gathered from the filing for right now, but the rumors suggest that the handset will be launched by T-Mobile on July 11th, which is touted to be the same time when Huawei’s myTouch branded smartphones for T-Mobile are expected to arrive.

Cool. I think the "phablet" term is a little weird though.

I wouldn't doubt it, I used to see quite a few G-Note ads on tv that said "exclusively at At&t," but I haven't seen them lately.

Samsung would have sold alot more Notes without this exclusively BS. The Note is a great phone. But will have been out 4 at least 9 months by the time tmo customers get it.

Too late in the game, esp when you can soon get the SGS3 which might not have as big of a screen. I really think 4.8 will be the perfect size. Though hopefully the Note 2 will be out sooner than later.

yeah, i was about to say the same thing. i feel bad for anyone compelled to by this now merely because of it's Gargantuan Screen Size. hopefully the SIII will offer more compelling things like TWNUX to veer them away from the first gen Note here.

I have a Note and the SGS3 looks good but i'm not going to trade my Note for it I'll skip it and wait for the Note 2 the screen size and S-pen I now can't live with out won't go to a smaller screen and XDA will give me all the software features of the SGS3 I will miss the new Exynos chip though.

It better comes with a tegra 3 , quad core eynos or snapdragon3 . If not I don't think anyone would want it even samsung fanboys Because galaxy s3 is just around the corner . If it comes with a snapdragon3 like AT&T people will hate it . But 1.4ghz dual core eynos on international note is fine too just not the best
