Official: Galaxy Note on AT&T Available February 19th

Samsung just dropped a nice note in our inboxes confirming that the Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T will be made available on February 19th. Additionally, presales will begin on February 5th “for delivery by February 17th,” meaning you preorderers will have a chance to get the device a day or two early. Keep this site bookmarked for that day.

AT&T’s Galaxy Note will feature 4G LTE radios, but due to this fact it won’t have Exynos. The 5.3 inch 1280×800 device is still a looker, though. It comes with the S Pen and some great apps to accompany it for those who like to draw or write. It’ll be available in carbon blue and ceramic white for $300 after a new two-year contract. Read on for full press details.

Key Facts

  • ·         Galaxy Note boasts the world’s first 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED™ screen (1280×800), one of the largest screens on asmartphonefor sharp, clear colors and readability – both indoors and out.  With the expansive high-resolution screen that provides an immersive viewing experience, customers can take full advantage of the large display, to create and consume more.
  • ·         The Galaxy Note includes a highly advanced tool called the S Pen, which delivers fast, responsive and precise control to create fine lines and detail on the device display, much like an ink pen and pad of paper.  With the S Pen, users can easily sketch drawings, jot down notes, or write emails and texts quickly and easily in free-form handwriting.
  • ·         S Memo™, a multimedia application designed to capture all forms of user-created content captured by the S Pen, allows for pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes or drawings to be combined via a single application, converted to a ‘memo’, and shared as desired.

    do we know the cpu yet? Scorpion?

    • B2L

      It’s been rumored to have the Snapdragon S3.

      • Jason Young

        That could make things more interesting if true. Want to get this phone, but if it has the same scorpion as the skyrocket/vivid/nitro It’s hard to get excited about.

        • Jason Young

          Just read up a little bit to make sure I was remembering Qualcomm’s soc version’s etc… I wasn’t. The S3 is the same SOC thats been available since summer. Its the S4 with the Krait architecture that I was thinking of.

          Wikipedia has the at&t note listed under the APQ8060 S3. Could still just be based on rumor though.

  • Guest

    Ugh. I was considering holding out for the rumored vzw version of this. But if AT&T isnt getting it until late february…..forget it. Itll be summer before big red gets around to it. CRAP

    • reznorfan0

      Crap indeed.  I too am waiting for the VZW version of this.  Sitting on an upgrade right now and using every once of willpower I have to not get the nexus.

      • Guest

        Im pretty disappointed at the situation. The one device I was really excited about this past year was the GS2 and its a shame to see that verizon really has no interest in offering any galaxy s 2-related devices before I grow elderly.
        Instead they opted for a short term exclusive for the galaxy nexus (a device Im far less interested in) while all other carriers got multiple variants. I dont see the business logic behind the decision and find it very very lame.

        • Thomas Vales

          I am in the exact opposite position, I have at&t but want the Nexus instead they keep giving us new versions of an almost year old phone. While the note, and Skyrocket HD look great I really want a stock build of android. They say the note will get ICS in the coming months but who knows how long that will be.

  • Bob holladay

    I work for Verizon corporate. The DROID XL will be out March 23rd. 5.4 inch 1280 by 720 super amoled plus, 1.6 GHz tegra quad core, 12.1 mp rear camera with xenon flash and our new advanced sensor, 5 mp front camera with led flash for video calls in low light situations, fingerprint sensor, NFC, aluminum black unibody , kickstand , 8.99 mm thin with a 1950 mah removable battery, unlockable bootloader (pending) , special stylus, available in 16gb , 32gb , or 64 gb all with micro sd slot. We have toned down our ui quite a bit for 4.0 so that you can have close to stock with enhancements .

    • Guest

      Man, dont I wish. I’d buy that phone day 1

      • Spencer Mead

        Id have wait to see how long the battery lasted, and if the bootloader is unlocked, but it looks like a winner

    • B2L

      1950 mah would mean pretty terrible battery life though. My Note lasts a whole day with a 2500 mah battery. But a 5.4″ device with LTE? (I’m guessing because you said Verizon.) Which means it would probably only get 6-8 hours of battery life at the most. (And that’s more than I actually expect it to get.)

    • DavidB23

      That sounds good except the battery.  1950ma + 5.4″ screen + LTE = not good.    Nobody wants a phone with 4 hour battery life.

      Hey – FFS – instead of spamming this Galaxy Note article with multiple annoying comments, why don’t you just send your “insider info” crap to phandroid?! thanks

    • Thomas Vales

      sounds good but would want a bigger battery, not a deal breaker though. Why is it people always complain about battery size like there is no way around it just have 2/3 batteries and always have one with a full charge.

  • Bob holladay

    Were also going to have a hspa+ 42mbps version without special droid branding for t-mobile , at&t will get a lte version July 22nd. Sprint has declined any versions of this phone

    • Spencer Mead

      spint… why:(

  • Bob holladay

    Working for Motorola corporate office in the Verizon building sure has it’s perks!

  • Bob holladay

    Yes lte on Verizon, it’s rated to have 7.5 hours talk time. We are happy to say it will include a spare battery as well

  • Bob holladay

    Our moto-dev kit is in beta but release has been scheduled for March but no later than July. That will unlock all bootloaders from the atrix to now. It will revive your phone from being bricked if you tinkered too much.

  • Bob holladay

    We also will be selling a extended battery that is 2350 mah that makes your DROID XL 11.1 mm thick and a 3600 mah battery that will make it 14.3 mm thick for 39.99$ and 59.99$ dollars.
