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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

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

    1. i hope sprint gets it

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

      1. 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!

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

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

  2. 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.

  3. LTE coverage first in SF bay area

  4. I may not switch ta at&t now

  5. 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.

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

  7. Took you looooong enough to post this lol

  8. This won’t be better than my HTC Hero. Not by a long shot

    1. lmao

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

      1. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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)

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

    2. only on 3G

  11. 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?

    1. At least $700, I hope not more.

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

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

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

  14. Time to put on your big boy pants ladies.

  15. my next phone. SERO!!!

  16. 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.
