A few documents unearthed by TMoNews seems to point towards a possible variant of Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet on the Magenta network. What makes them think so?
- The model (SGH-T879) was initially claimed to be a variant of the SGH-i717, the AT&T Galaxy Note, in the Bluetooth SIG and WiFi Alliance documents. This has however been removed.
- Although the SGH-T8x9 is normally reserved for tablets, the Bluetooth documents call the device a phone. It’s a grey area, but explicitly detailing it as a phone makes me lean towards the Note, too.
- The user agent is similar to that from the AT&T Galaxy Note.
- The model number SGH-Txx9 are used by T-Mobile’s Samsung devices.
As is written in TMoNews’ post, there’s no guarantee that this is the Galaxy Note and not a tablet, but the mention of “smartphone” in the official documents, coupled with the 800X1280 resolution, points towards the Note more than anything else.
