AT&T Galaxy Note 2 coming November 9th for $300


The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is getting its official coming out party tomorrow, and the Sprint version of the device is slated to land in stores the day after. We’re still waiting on official dates for Verizon, T-Mobile, and US Cellular, but we’re glad to report that AT&T has finally let out some information regarding the launch of its version.

AT&T has announced it would be selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 starting November 9th, and it will cost you $300 to walk away with the 5.5 inch bundle of joy. It’s tough to swallow considering Sprint users will be able to enjoy the phone almost two weeks early, but it’s better to know the late release than to not know it at all.

Pre-sale opportunities will begin the same day Sprint’s version goes on sale, though, as users can put money down to claim a Galaxy Note 2 of their own starting October 25th.

AT&T’s offering won’t differ much from the other carriers or even the international version. As you know, all carriers are getting the quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos chipset, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel HD camera, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, NFC, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz, the beautiful 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD display, a monstrous 3,100mAh battery and the all-important S Pen.

AT&T’s 4G LTE radios will be the only difference compared to all the rest here so you don’t have to worry about getting a “gimped” experience. Unfortunately we’re still not sure which storage configuration AT&T will be offering, but the general feeling is 16GB which will be offset by the advent of the microSD card slot sitting inside.

Folks shouldn’t be surprised that it’s coming to the US late, and although AT&T will be late to the party compared to Sprint (and possibly T-Mobile) we’re sure those who really want the Galaxy Note 2 will have no problem waiting two more weeks than their Now Network counterparts. Will any of you be in line (physically or otherwise) for the Note 2 once it launches? Read on for full press details.

AT&T Announces Samsung Galaxy Note II Available Nov. 9, Pre-orders Begin Oct. 25

DallasTexasOctober 23, 2012



Beginning Nov. 9 customers interested in picking up a Samsung Galaxy Note® II will be able to purchase one for $299.99 with a two-year agreement in all AT&T* stores and online.  Online pre-orders for this highly anticipated device are planned for Oct. 25 at www.att.com/galaxynoteii.

Announced last month, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is one of the first smartphones launching at AT&T to feature a quad-core processor.  Galaxy Note II uses a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos™ processor with powerful graphics capabilities.  The Galaxy Note II is thinner and narrower than the first Galaxy Note, and it improves upon the original with longer battery life, as well as enhancements to the S Pen™.  AT&T is the only carrier to offer the original Samsung Galaxy Note™ at $199.99 with a two-year agreement.

The Galaxy Note II will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. It will ship running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on its beautiful 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED™ display, perfect for customers who want the productivity of a tablet with the portability of a smartphone.  The 8-megapixel camera allows users to easily share their photos with friends through Share Shot, while S Beam™ lets you quickly share videos, pictures, maps and more with other Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S® III devices.

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network**, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.

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. Well, there goes my hopes of it hitting Verizon this month… Verizon will surely be the last to release it.

    1. ugh….you’re right :( why big red????

    2. I intend on ditching Verizon for T-Mobile with this phone. The loss of unlimited data was the last straw I’m willing to take from them. Had them since I was 16 (well, had Alltel then Verizon) but it’s time to quit paying $15 more a month than it would cost on Magenta for better value.

      1. i couldn’t wait for the note any longer so got the gs3 on t mobile my sister added me to her plan so all i pay is $20/ month for unlimited data my min and text are included with hers $15/month for my equipment installment and $7.99 for insurance. $42.99 sure as hell beats what Verizon was charging. $130/month for 450min and limited data.

  2. As an AT&T customer, I’m thinking strongly about it. I’ll check out the next Nexus phone too, but if Samsung clears up its Exynos mess with developers (see xdaforum), I’m probably in. Sure I’d love a 1080p display, a 13 MP camera, and a bunch of other stuff that will probably be out in phones early next year, but I’m tired of waiting (with an iPhone 3GS no less).

    1. That’s what I’m waiting on too. If they can give the Devs their support there will be no stopping Samsung in the Android universe.

    2. Were just happy to have you :) welcome to the dark side lol

  3. I thought you guys said yesterday the T -Mobile Note 2 would be out tomorrow, but this article says your still waiting to find out from them ?

    1. That was suspected and, while probably true, it has yet to be confirmed.

    2. Rumor. Strong rumor, but still a rumor, my friend.

      1. Every T-Mobile store I have called has them in stock & ready to go for tomorrow.

      2. If it’s still rumor then perhaps Chris should drop the “confirmed”. Problem is people’s hopes are up now they are confused.

  4. Great phone, now selling my International version now!!! LTE will be great!

    1. How much? I want the international version.

  5. Sure I’ll be waiting in line…..begging for money! I hate being broke when this thing drops.

  6. Verizon, why are you always late to the party with releases? Don’t get me wrong, you have the best network around, but you’re awful about releasing freakin’ devices to run on it.

    1. @earthlingi:disqus a monstrous 3,100mAh battery and the all-important S Pen. ..Jive.to/US

    2. I agree….VZW can you please get you act together. Every popular phone becomes an issue for you. Is it that you look to block features on the phone so you can capitalize on selling the data (eg selling the gps as a data when its built into the phn) that keeps you from launching phones on time. Give your loyal customers a break!……..

      1. FYI Books & Review has vzw unveiling the note on Oct. 24 see link below. Kanye West is performing at the samsung event……

  7. You writers at phandroid have no consistency. Chris said yesterday that it was confirmed for a tmobile release tomorrow.

    1. While that is strong evidence that we believe to be accurate, we never treat things as fact until OEMs, carriers, developers, etc. come out and say it for themselves in the public eye. Fact of the matter is that there is no officially official date for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 yet.

      1. It’s definitely tomorrow, the T-Mobile rep showed me my phone yesterday when the shipment came in and I’m gonna go pick it up tomorrow at 8am.

  8. Waiting for Sprint. If it didn’t have micro sd I wouldn’t get 16GB. :) google wallet ;)

  9. I reeeeeally need to know the off-contract price of this thing -_-‘

  10. Any word on how much it is without a contract?

    1. @JunBringer:disqus and @facebook-730350889:disqus … I’m right there with you, but I think the speculation that’s become pretty consistent recently is that we should expect $699 off contract and should consider being pleasantly surprised if $649 off contract manages to hit instead.

      One thing’s for sure- recent thoughts on off-contract pricing have reigned in my price sensitivity a bit. I told myself early on that I’d give $799 max for it, but I’m now considering that “overpriced,” despite what this device packs. My max is about $699 now- anything more, and I’ll probably try to force myself to wait it out a bit. Knowing that it’s likely I can go to TMo tomorrow and play with one, though, will complicate that. Must… resist… temptation…

    2. 850-1000 without contract for global versions

  11. I’m hoping Walmart gets this for $250. And I hope my local one has it that day because my upgrade is the 10th.

  12. Glad they finally announced it so I don’t feel the need to sit through samsungs presentation tomorrow.

  13. Trust me: I’d much rather wait for the AT&T version of the galaxy note 2. I don’t even want to hear the name Sprint.

    1. I would rather gouge my eyes out and never use a phone again than use anything from AT&T. They are the worst company it’s ever been my extreme displeasure to deal with.

  14. finally !

  15. Well, Sprint did something right by making it known early on that it’d have the phone after the phone is announced on the 24th. I wish Verizon could have spoken up, but that isn’t my problem.

  16. I guess I’ll just order the international version. For 299.99 on a 2 year contract on a value plan or 379.99 on a classic voice, text + data plan. I’d just as soon have a version of the phone that AT&T has no control over and doesn’t lock down the NFC chip so it only works with ISIS. I don’t have 4G LTE anywhere near me anyway and with only 2GB of data HSPA+ is plenty fast for me.
