Sprint Galaxy Note 2 confirmed?

While no US carriers have committed to announcing plans to carry the Galaxy Note 2 as fast as they did the Galaxy S3, but it seems we could have a bit of a clue to at least one carrier planning to get it.

An XDA user claims to have found a Sprint RDF, or a device profile, with specs that match up mighty nicely to the Galaxy Note 2. Beyond that, they claim to have gotten further confirmation that Sprint is, indeed, going to carry the device. The specs he rattled off?

  • Exynos4412 processor
  • 1280×720 resolution
  • Android 4.1.1!
  • Support for EVDO, DOrA, WiFi and LTE!
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB HDD (with expansion slot up to 32 GB)
  • 8 Megapixel camera
  • And more!

If what they’re saying is true this would mark one of the first devices in America that uses Exynos alongside LTE. Samsung told us the LTE compatible chipsets were being sampled, and going by the usual research and development cycle of a mobile phone it sounds like it’s right on schedule.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Exynos becomes a mainstay for other LTE carriers, but considering this isn’t official we can’t even say for sure that Sprint’s version will be. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Sprint or Samsung can spread some official light before too long.

    thought the Note 2 has expandable sd card slot upto 64gb….?

    • earthlingi

      i hope sprint gets it

    • NYCHitman1

      This still seems like a very preliminary rumor spec sheet, so I would imagine a few things may change once it becomes official.

      • Clayton Johnson

        It’s not the specs that get us in a jiffy. It’s the fact that there’s even a rumor that it’s coming to Sprint!

        • NYCHitman1

          I don’t get all the hype about phablets, but that’s just me.

            I will try it and I could change completely from phones to phablets…

  • King Free

    I hope this is true because this phone is unreal. I was hoping for a the 5250 chip, but this is still one powerful device.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    LTE coverage first in SF bay area

  • jason

    I may not switch ta at&t now

  • davianny

    It is true and if you head over to the Samsung Note 2 forum, you will see a question thread that is quite enlightening on what the Sprint version has.

  • Butters619

    Good thing they strapped a bigger battery on it. Quad core + external LTE chip will not be the battery’s best friend

      You’re just jealous of those who got the Samsung Moment.

      • toomuchgame441

        I’m more jealous of those who got their hands on the G1, I’d sell everything I owned for one of those bad boys

    waiting for verizon confirmation……waiting to switch off my dad’s plan with this shitty Sammy stratusphere to get Note 2. puts the s3 to shame, and that’s saying something

  • AJA0

    If this does come to Sprint, would you be able to activate this on Verizon????? Don’t Sprint and VZW use the same frequency types? (Since Sprint hits off VZW’s towers)

    • triangle8

      Nope. Sorry, but CDMA is carrier controlled and LTE radios are specific to the spectrum that each company uses.

    • lynyrd65

      only on 3G

  • deltatko

    Been waiting for a Sprint Note for the last year. I better start selling stuff to be able to afford a couple of these off contract. What are we thinking for the off contract price? $700? $800?

    • AJA0

      At least $700, I hope not more.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alexander.ramos.1829 Alexander Ramos

    Well, it could be a nice added to my collection…

  • D’Angelo Stewart

    Did anyone notice it says “16 GB HDD”? Sounds fishy to me!

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

      Yeah I’ve never seen a HDD in a phone personally.

  • a) youth.in.asia

    Time to put on your big boy pants ladies.

  • faceless128

    my next phone. SERO!!!

    I was in my local Sprint store saturday asking if they had heard this. The girl working said no they hadnt heard anything. But before i left she came up to me saying they had just got a email talking about it while i was there. But no saying of when or specs. So it might be on its way soon.
