After Verizon, Sprint could announce the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, too
Earlier this month, Verizon Wireless unveiled its own Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (with LTE), which should become available pretty soon.
Now, it looks like Sprint is about to follow. A Sprint-bound Galaxy Note 10.1 has been approved by the FCC recently – this likely means the third largest US mobile carrier plans to announce the tablet at some point.
The Note 10.1 that we’re talking about has the model number SPH-P600 (SPH clearly being an indication that it’s headed to Sprint – see the carrier’s Note II SPH-L900, Galaxy S III SPH-L710, and so on). Moreover, the tablet also has Sprint-friendly LTE connectivity.
Like Verizon’s Galaxy Note 10.1, Sprint’s model should run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one. Specs-wise, it’s going to offer a 10.1 inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels, S Pen stylus, quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4412 processor, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, probably 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 64GB), and a 7,000 mAh battery.
At the moment, Sprint is selling just one other Samsung tablet – the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is offered for $449.99 on contract. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will probably have a similar price. In any case, we will let you know when Sprint officially announces it.
