Samsung's Galaxy Note II: Coming to Five US Carriers in Mid-Novemberby Anand Lal Shimpi on September 19, 2012 9:09 AM EST
We recently spent some hands on time with the Galaxy Note II, Samsung's new 5.5-inch Jelly Bean equipped Android smartphone/minitablet. The Note II runs a 32nm 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos 4 part and features 2GB of memory. Like the original Note, the integrated S Pen is one of the major selling points of the Note II (in addition to its larger-than-life size).
During our hands on Samsung told us that US carrier details were forthcoming, and the Note II would likely follow the Galaxy S 3 in being fairly consistent between international and US versions. Today we got our next piece of information: the Galaxy Note II will arrive on five major US carriers by mid November. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and US Cellular are all getting the device. Details on pricing and exact configuration on each carrier is unknown at this point, but we're getting there.
