AT&T announces the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, both with 4G LTE support

AT&T has had a full day today. Not content with just introducing the HTC Titan II and Sony Xperia Ion, the carrier has also officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note as well as the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD. We knew that the former device was going to be announced by way of many leaks, but the latter is certainly a competitor for the ‘most convoluted smartphone name’ title, neck and neck with Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a bit different than the internationally-selling version, packing in LTE support and four Android buttons under the screen, so we guess the fact that the original wouldn’t make it to the US was technically true as Samsung claimed last year. AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy Note features the following:

  • 5.3-inch 1280×800 Super AMOLED HD touchscreen
  • S Pen capacitive stylus
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording
  • 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 4G LTE support
  • 16 GB of built-in storage
  • microSD support
  • 2,500 mAh battery
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The Galaxy Note will become available in the coming weeks in blue or white. Pricing information isn’t out yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD is, as you’d expect, basically a new and slightly upgraded version of the already selling Skyrocket. The new one comes with:

  • 4.65-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED HD touchscreen
  • dual-core 1.5 GHz processor
  • 4G LTE support
  • 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture
  • 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 9.27 mm thickness
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will be out “in the coming months”, so later than the Galaxy Note. Again, AT&T gave us no hints about pricing.
