Samsung Galaxy Note will be launched by AT&T with 4G LTE, may be announced in January
Say it ain’t so. From the things will make their way to the US no matter what department, today we give you the humongous phone/tablet hybrid called Samsung Galaxy Note. Which apparently is on its way to AT&T. This after Samsung reportedly had no plans to release it or the Galaxy Tab 7.7 Stateside. Yeah, right. Oh, by the way, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is headed to Verizon. So that’s that.
The Samsung Galaxy Note which will be sold by AT&T will be a little bit different from the internationally-launched version. Fret not though, for the screen is still the same 5.3-inch 1280×800 Super AMOLED HD affair.
The processor however won’t be Samsung’s own Exynos, but a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon unit. This swap is similar with what happened with T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II, yet the reasons for it are unclear. Perhaps Samsung simply isn’t able to manufacture enough of its own processors.
Anyway, the model number for the AT&T device will be SGH-I717, and it will come with support for 4G LTE connectivity. The final difference between this model and the international one consists in the four-button layout which is so loved in the US and is present on AT&T’s Galaxy Note as you can see in the image above.
We don’t know anything about when AT&T plans on releasing this beast, but the official announcement will probably come during CES in January. So stay tuned.
