T-Mobile officially says Galaxy Note 2 coming this fall, leak says October 24


T-Mobile just sent out a press release to announce that the carrier will host the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 later this fall. With it’s 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos CPU, and Android 4.1, it’s no surprise that TMo is calling it their most powerful handset ever. What they failed to offer were any further details on pricing or availability, only that the handset will be in store “in the coming weeks.”

Good thing we have a leaked internal document to help clear things up. According to the goods had by TMoNews, the phone will be launching on October 24th in both Titanium Gray and White color schemes. The timing lines up with a press event that Samsung plans to hold on the same day, one which sounds suspiciously like a coming out party for the behemoth of a phone. Either way, it sounds like a good date to watch if you are a US resident eyeing the Note 2.

T-Mobile’s Most Powerful Device, the Samsung Galaxy Note® II, Coming this Fall

With a powerful quad-core processor, large HD screen and exclusive gaming features, the Galaxy Note II offers an amazing 4G experience and superior value on T-Mobile’s nationwide network.

Only T-Mobile Galaxy Note II customers will have access to an exciting new racing game preloaded on the device, which will include three free levels.

The AllShare Cast Wireless Hub accessory is currently available in T-Mobile retail stores and at www.T-Mobile.com for $99.99.

Building on the Premium Suite of productivity features offered with the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II delivers an even more robust portfolio of tools for business professionals. The enhanced S Pen™ gives users a more precise and natural writing and drawing experience, making creativity and collaboration a breeze. New applications for the S Pen, such as Air View which gives the ability to preview content simply by hovering the S Pen over an email, calendar entry, image gallery or video, helps Galaxy Note II users get more done – even faster.
The Galaxy Note II is a SAFE™ (Samsung Approved for Enterprise) device, providing the ability to securely sync corporate email, calendars, contacts and sensitive information.

  1. And so it begins… Just sit back and watch Apple.

  2. I’m glad I don’t live in the US. I can pick whichever device I want with whichever network I choose.

    1. I am so jealous of you…When I was stationed in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East I had a plethora of devices and was jumping to carrier to carrier and all I had to do was just buy a $30 or so SIM card….SIGH…

  3. No mention of LTE : (

    1. According to an FCC filing, the T-Mobile Note 2 features LTE compatibility. I’m sure Samsung/T-Mobile will issue an update to enable it once LTE is finally available next year..

      1. Cool….I’ll turn that from upside down : )

      2. YAY!!!!!

    2. That was a concern for me as well. I hope the Metro PCS deal happens so TMO can get some LTE love.

  4. Most definitely my next phone

  5. for my bday Oct 26th I can’t wait I hate my sensation.

  6. My birthday is on the 23rd, so Verizon better follow suit!!!

  7. This just seems unlikely to me. If Samsung isn’t announcing its availability in the U.S. until the 24th….how is T Mobile selling it on the 24th. Preorder on the 24th seems more likely in my opinion

  8. Finally a time frame! I bought a Galaxy S3 two weeks ago! Damnit. I guess I’ll be selling this and getting a Note II. I’ll have to pony up the difference out of pocket though. Curses!

  9. I find it funny they list “preloaded with many apps” as one of the features.

  10. local tmobile store rep today said it will be available November 9 in store
