Sprint to add Samsung GALAXY Note II to its lineup?

Sprint to add Samsung GALAXY Note II to its lineup?
Despite the recent excitement over the unveiling of the Samsung GALAXY Note II, not one U.S. carrier made an announcement yet about adding the son of phablet to its lineup. One XDA member found a Sprint device profile for a device whose specs match up to the Samsung GALAXY Note II. Besides matching the specs, the member claims to have some other undisclosed information linking the nation's third largest carrier to Samsung's phablet sequel.

The specs on the device profile include an Exynos 4412 processor, 720 x 1280 resolution, Android 4.1.1, LTE connectivity, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage and a 32GB capacity microSD slot and an 8MP camera. Regardless if this is the Samsung GALAXY Note II or some other model, it could be one of the first in the States to sport both a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and LTE connectivity.

With an October launch of the Samsung GALAXY Note II expected, it shouldn't be too long before we find out if indeed the unit is heading to Sprint.

$199 minimum, it wouldn't be far fetched to put it in the $249 category, which Sprint hasn't had a phone that high since the originial Epic.

When I got my OG Note on 2yr contract with AT&T it was $299 on a preorder with a free flip case and $29 for S-pen holder and extra s-pen. I would think the Note 2 will start at launch at the same price

So far it looks like the Note 2 is going to be on Tmo and AT&T

Ok with this news there looks to be the possibility of this phone hitting Verizon because BOTH Sprint & Verizon use CDMA & LTE.

I'm with you, this makes a strong case for Verizon to carry it as well. I'm so happy about this, I want everyone to have one on every carrier. However, if Big Red doesn't get it, I will be looking at T-Mo with their new Unlimited 4G Prepaid and 100 voice minutes (don't talk much anyway so don't really care about minute plan).

I had unlimited data with AT&T but when I upgraded to my note back in Feb, the girl messed up and changed my plan to a 3 gig plan. I escalated the issue and no one "could" or would do anything to fix it. I was deeply saddened by this.

The tmobile plan would be great if tmobile got service. Im in nj and ny and pa a lot and the service is horrible with tmobile. Unless your on a major highway or in a city your not gettin your phone to work and youll only have 3g coverage

Doubt it Verizon just launched an LG phablet and have a HTC phablet being announced for them on the 19th to be released by Oct. Why would they add another phablet to their line up and they passed on the 1st Note.

The lg phablet looks gross and the stats are something apple would release the galaxy note one has better stats which came out over a year ago. I havent seen solid stats on the HTC yet but the samsung seems to be blowing everything else away which is why we want the samsung lol

iPhone 5 is launching in stores on the 21st. Galaxy note II is launching near the end of the Oct in Europe and Asia. Coming to all 4 carriers most likely november.

I can't believe sprint is getting this. I'm sure att will too. This might be the first phone sprint ever has that's over $200 on contract

The Samsung Epic was $249 when it first came out.

The iPhone 4 and 4s higher GB models are over that price range. and the original EVO was 199 on contract if the rebate was performed but 299 out the pocket unless from a third party dealer.

i can see around 250-300 but the service is so slow you got to live in a major city for great service for a phone like that

If and when this comes to Sprint, this looks to be the best device in their line up. Kinda hoping that it's on Sprint before Feb of next year so I can go check it out and decide if I want to stick with Sprint or go somewhere else. As of lately, since "Network Vision" has been getting deployed in my area, I've been a little bit happier with their service and data speeds. The other day I was in an area where they had deployed "Network Vision" and averaged 1.4Mbps down (lowest was 1.08Mbps and highest that I got on record was 1.8Mbps, but when doing tests I saw 2.2Mbps+)

1.08mbps on what LTE,wimax or 3g? Im leaving sprint. On a lucky day i get about 1mbps max on wimax, on 3g about 0.15mbps here in nyc. When is raining i get nothing on 3g

Yea I already left sprint in July. They cost as much as any other carrier now, and they have nothing to show for it. Their speeds are so freaking slow that it doesn't matter that it's unlimited, you can't use it. I used to average .15mpbs also, but often got even less. On a really good day I got .8mbps. There's no reason why everyone on sprint shouldn't move to Tmobile. They are the same price with unlimited data, but it's 100x faster.

This would make a lot of people happy. I have had a LOT of sprint customers say they would get the Note if it wasn't an AT&T exclusive.

It would be straight asinine if AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and Tmobile dont get the Note II at or around the same time. The SIII has sold over 10 million units already so the Note II would be close to that. Sprint would honestly make the profit they were supposed to get from the iPhone, with the Note II. I know it'll come to AT&T and hopefully other carriers will receive the same amount of love that we've gotten from the original Note BTW, with Apple's announcement of the iPhone 5 on wednesday........they better make the iPhone revelant again because the competition gap between Apple and the other phone manufacturers are small. It wont be long before Android phone manufacturers (HTC, Samsung, Motorola, etc) dethrones Apple
