Samsung Galaxy Note II Launching In Both White And Gray On October 24th?

Like all release dates that leak out, we’ll remind you that these dates are subject to change without notice, but we’re pretty confident an October 24th launch for the Galaxy Note II isn’t far off. Given that date is the same day Samsung is holding their own launch event in New York City, it doesn’t seem unreasonable that Samsung and/or T-Mobile would choose that day to stock store shelves.

As a quick reminder, the Galaxy Note II is the first quad-core powered Samsung smartphone/tablet/phablet in T-Mobile’s lineup with a 5.5” display and the first Android device to launch with Jelly Bean Android 4.1 preinstalled. The Note II will come with the typical amount of  “bloatware” including “Need for Speed: Most Wanted.”

The good news is that many of you will be excited to learn that the Note II will launch in two colors: both Titanium Gray and White. Unfortunately, we still don’t have any detailed information on price but with T-Mobile emphasizing more info will arrive on 10/15, hopefully we’ll know then.

  • Get_at_Me

    Rocking back and forth in my chair waiting….. Soon

  • mbcls

    thanks! i was thinking of getting international version cus i hate waiting! oct 24, 2 more weeks to go. i think i can wait.

    • thepanttherlady

      I believe the international version is only 3g capable if that matters to you.

      • eanfoso

        It does support LTE, but I’m not sure if it supports T-Mobile’s AWS bands for LTE

        • achusaysblessyou

          Actually, it supports the 1900 MHz, so if you are in a refarmed 1900 MHz area, you can get HSPA+ (Tmo’s 4G) there (same as for iPhones).

          It also supports AT&T’s HSPA+ but no LTE yet.

          I’d wait for the T-Mobile version as it supports the regular bands for 4G and also supposedly future proof on T-Mobile LTE

    • note_lover

      Same here, the wait is finally almost over!!!!

  • Freddie Lopez

    OMG… I Magenta’d in my pants! Cannot wait… but I hope it’s not over $350.00. What prices do you guys and girls thing it will be?

    • eanfoso

      300 on contract, 650 retail

      • thepanttherlady

        With TMo I’d guess higher. :( I’m still getting it though! :)

        • eanfoso

          Me too man, I’m going to get an extra school loan for this :)

        • thepanttherlady

          Hell, I’d offer my first born but fear she’ll be brought back for a refund. =P

        • eanfoso

          This fool lol I’d offer my laptop and iPad, since I won’t be needing them anymore, along with my galaxy blaze :) & I’ll even throw in my ps3 hehe! :)

        • Thomas C Montano

          Newegg has em for $699 free shipping.

        • thepanttherlady

          That’s for the 3g version which I’m not interested in. If history dicates, TMo will price theirs higher than the competition. :/

        • paul2834

          I’m not sure about Nationwide, but the Walmarts in Austin and Houston price their phones at the same rate other carriers price them for T-Mobile. For instance, the T-Mobile S III launched at $200 at Walmart while T-Mobile stores had them for $280.

        • thepanttherlady

          A lot of us are buying this phone off contract. I believe Walmarts retail price is actually higher than Tmobile’s. :(

      • Richard Yarrell

        I would say 350on contract.. 750off contract. Day one purchase for me without question.

      • Freddie Lopez

        I’m still hoping it is around $300 – $350. Does anyone know if T-Mobile offers different ways to pay the device? Like +$20 a month on the bill until the phone is paid?

        • 21stNow

          Yes, if you are on the Value plan only. You also will pay the full price (estimated at $600 or higher) with this plan.

        • Freddie Lopez

          Oh damn! That’s a lot! K. Thanks!

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jeremy-Washington/100000190010519 Jeremy Washington

          its broken up though

      • Marco

        I would hope that it is $650 full retail. Even if it is more, I am paying full price. This looks to be the best phone out for at least the next 6 months. I will be getting a 32GB version. I filled my 16GB S3 in less than a week. Good thing is there was already a work around by the time I got it and am using my 64GB microsdxc card as my application storage.

        • eanfoso

          Dude by any chance, how do you set your micro sd as the main storage??? I’ve also ran out of space and when I try to download something it tells me memory is full and won’t let me download anything, even though I have an almost empty 32 gig micro sd

      • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

        I can do $650 out of box cash I hope its no more than that ! I already got rid of my S3.

    • 21stNow

      I’m going to put it out there: $600 full retail!

    • note_lover

      Also, will the 32 & 64 onboard internal GB be available, in the US, as well (or only the 16GB)? If so, the price will reflect those. I am hoping (if they have all 3 available), it will be $249.99 (for 16 GB), $299.99 (or 32fGB) & $349.99 (for 64GB). That may be wishful thinking though lol!

    • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

      $669.99 for the 16gb version full retail I think

  • ceegii63

    please dont be more than $600 retail

    • David

      For sure it will be.I would say above the $700 mark.

      • thepanttherlady

        The US Cellular version (16gb) for preorders is $299 w/ a new 2 year contract, $799 w/out. I just read a blog that suggests the subsidized pricing will go up $100 after the phone is launched. :(

    • thepanttherlady

      The S3 was more than $600 retail so you can bet this will be as well.

    • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

      More than likely $649 retail

      • achusaysblessyou

        I hope you’re right as tax will add a pretty penny to this price…

    • bleeew

      no.. Its $599+tax.

  • nycplayboy78

    HOLY SHIT!!!! YES!!!! As the Etta James song goes….AT LAST!!!!! I am buying it right out at full price……This will make a great compliment to my new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 :)

    • Boss_king

      • nycplayboy78

        AMEN!!! Boss King :)

  • GwapoAko

    • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

      No! Your hands will go into shock. ; )

    • iHackURi

      Uhhhh??? YEAH… That’s a no brainer… Consider me already in line… LOL!!!

  • Claude

    Will the Note 2 also have LTE making it future-proof?

    • http://tmonews.com David

      We’ve posted this, but yes!

      • Claude

        Thanks David. I’ve seen some conflicting information on this on other sites. Just wanted to confirm to be sure.

        • http://tmonews.com David

          I’m going on the FCC docs, nothing I’ve seen internally from T-Mobile tells me anything, but the FCC report showed LTE capable bands.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/XRMEM6UFA2XCCOOUTERPD672LY Mike O

          Let’s hope so. I’ve been holding off on getting a new phone and really want a nice large one like this but there is no way I am spending that much on a new phone with LTE just around the corner.

        • macman37

          David, a previous article reported that the device has both LTE Band 4 {AWS bands of 1700MHz and 2100MHz} and 700b MHz frequency band {LTE Band 17}. May you please confirm for us when and from whom did T-Mobile buy some of the 700b MHz spectrum from? Even though they said that they were not interested in Verizon’s sale of the 700b MHz band, I do suspect that they bought some of it from them along with the AWS swap despite the interferences the 700b MHz band has. Lower frequencies tend to travel further and have better obstacle penetration. 2 other posters have tried to prove me wrong, but Verizon seems like the one of the possible sources for it.

        • http://tmonews.com David

          The 700 band is for roaming, it isn’t something T-Mobile owns. T-Mobile doesn’t own any 700MHz band as far as I know.

        • macman37

          So based on your answer, does the US GSM iPhone 5 allow T-Mobile subscribers LTE roaming on LTE band 17 {700b MHz frequency band}? As far as the specs indicate about which frequencies the device works on, these 2 devices of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and US GSM iPhone are exactly the same.

        • TMOTECH

          UM, as you said, it has Band IV. So why does it matter if it also has the 700MHZ block included? Ever hear of roaming? And no, we did not buy/Acquire any 700b MHZ spectrum.

        • macman37

          Because your subscribers will more than likely pay more for roaming. Roaming charges ring a bell? Also, your subscribers would have a stronger reception when inside buildings like data centers, buildings with thick walls, and subscribers won’t have tell the person that they’re talking to, “Hold on, let me get closer to a window or outside.”; a common complaint about the network.

        • bleeew

          Yea, but higher frequencies hold more capacity. Look at AT&T, and Verizon. They scooped up AWS. Lower frequencies may mean better penetration, but there are also more people on it. It may also force carriers to have more towers with LTE if its a high frequency.

  • http://twitter.com/YepiimGS_Blanco Jay J. Blanco

    Im sill deciding what im gone do lol

  • thepanttherlady

    I HOPE they will launch the 32gb version as well and not make us have to go through Customer Care or online to buy! This just made my Monday totally worth getting out of bed. =D

  • mreveryphone

    Need a solid date so I can go ahead and take the day off, maybe two!

  • Sebastian S.

    Most likely $299 w/ contract and $800 without

    • eanfoso

      Tripping man, we usually get a much cheaper price for retail than back in Europe, relax I expect no greater than 700

      • note_lover

        I like your thinking better lol! I hope you’re right and it is around $250,00-$300.00!

        • eanfoso

          Lol yeah man! But with $250,00 I think I’d rather buy a Mercedes sls lol jk but yeah 300 or even 350 at maximum on contract

    • anonymous

      thats the same price as the gs3. same a new full discount is 358.98 with upgrade fee and tax, after rebate 279..99 i highly doubt that.

      Gnote has bigger screen and a pen so pricing will press a new boundary in cost. 399, 849.99 retail.

      • eanfoso

        Tripping man, that’s only in Europe, we get a cheaper retail price all the time man

  • teknodogg

    what about any other devices like HTC one? or the Sony Xperia T? =( when / will they even make it to T-Mobile any time soon~

    • eanfoso

      No dude, they’re both AT&T exclusive in the USA, however you can just buy either one unlocked you know…

      • teknodogg

        lmao…HTC ONE exclusive to AT&T? since when??….FYI Xperia Z and Z1 also making their way to T-Mobile as well~

  • YOpops

    ill return my GS3. im still within 30 days. This will probably be $300 down + $20 x 20 months on EIP. ouch

    • TMOTECH

      Return time is 14 days…. Ouch!

      • thepanttherlady

        Plus a restocking fee, correct?

        • YOpops

          not sure. I extended my contract 2 years to switch to the unlimited value plan. i hope i won’t be paying restocking fee since it’s technically an exchange.

        • thepanttherlady

          I believe it will be a $50 restocking fee unless you can get the manager to waive it. Unless you’re exchanging for the same device, I think the fee applies. They make their $ no matter what we do! :/

      • 21stNow

        Full-priced purchases have 30 days to return. I’m not sure how it works if you use the EIP, though.

        • Get_at_Me

          14 days except for california

        • 21stNow

          I’m not in California and I always have 30-days to return my phones to T-Mobile.

      • YOpops

        I’m in CALIFORNIA. Ouch? LOL.

        • note_lover

          LOL again!

        • note_lover

          I think all states should be 30 days!

      • note_lover

        LOL!

  • eanfoso

    Time to get an extra unsubsidized loan :)

  • AM3RIG

    exciting!

  • Paul

    Okay then…I guess I’m going that morning and will be late for work. 2 days after my birthday too.

  • Anonymous

    i’m very excited for this, planning to get a pair for the parents.. and also so i can occasionally use them. Though something tells me i should also wait for google’s upcoming announcement in early nov…

  • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    This is good news, just called my buddy that works for TMo. She says it’s a go as of now..woohoo! Grey for me, no more ugly white devices for me.

    • thepanttherlady

      Is your buddy able to tell if the 32gb version will be available at launch? =D

      • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

        32GB online, 16GB in store.

      • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

        32GB online, 16GB in store. Same as the S3

        • thepanttherlady

          *tear* Guess I’ll make the decision closer to launch on which one. Thank you!

        • eanfoso

          Go for the 16 GB, ask yourself, is paying an extra 50$ worth the extra 16 GB? I mean you can get a 32 GB micro sd for 20 something on Amazon.

        • thepanttherlady

          Have one already and have 764mb left. Would rather pay the extra $50 for phone storage and transfer my movies etc. to the phone than pay an almost $100 extra for a 64gb card.

        • eanfoso

          http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_box_?k=micro+sd+64 wherever you shop they’re ripping you off big time O.o lol

        • thepanttherlady

          The prices of those cards change all the time. Regardless, I agree with note_lover. I’d rather get the version with the largest internal memory with the option to get a 64gb card should I want that.

        • eanfoso

          Alright suit yourself, just know that in order to access the internal memory you’re going to need to install the drivers in every computer you use, since it’s not the same as with a memory, which means it will take you forever to get a file from your phone to a computer

        • thepanttherlady

          I have 1 computer. With that being said, I’m not a newbie but thank you for the concern. It is truly appreciated. :)

        • eanfoso

          Lol you’re welcome! :) and I was mainly looking out for your pocket! I’m sorry I’m in college and I’m used to being a big saver lol

        • thepanttherlady

          No worries. :) I may drive a POS car but my phone’s will always be what I consider the best. =D I’m a single mom but my vices in life are cell’s and nail polish. Could be worse, right? LOL Besides, I’ll sell my S3 to offset most of the cost of the higher memory version of the Note 2. Now, if the 32gb at minimum is not available at launch, I’m not sure I can hold back and wait for it and may end up with the 16gb like I did with the S3. :/

        • eanfoso

          Bummer! :/ haha well eh for how much would you leave the galaxy s3 to this poor, humble college undergraduate who today had to go through food that consisted of rice and veggies with no meat?? :3

          Sorry, I just took the last comment where you guys started talking dollars and erased from there. Not tripping, I’ve seen sites get seriously screwed from people doing this stuff in the comments.

        • Guest

          I agree, I want the most internal storage I can get (for movies, videos, music and photos) then I can get the extra 64gb card if I want it later.

        • note_lover

    amazing phone. i’m so glad they were able to stick with the quadcore.

  • nerdlust

    Dang this sounds sweet.

  • GeekNerdStuff

    So excited! Titanium Grey it is. I was one of the people who got the Original T-Mobile Galaxy Note with no regrets and it’s still an awesome device. It will go to the hubby so that’s covered. T-Mobile will be giving me the Galaxy Note II at the full upgrade price. (^_^) Couldn’t be any more happier than that.

    • note_lover

      Same here, one of my sons will be taking my phone (which is barely a year old) and I’ll finally have my Note 2!

  • SAMSUNGMAKESTHEWORLDGOROUND

    whatever the retail whatever the cost it will be worth it folks, i was at a conference for tmobile/samsung and got to use it first hand, ohhh the possibilities with this device, it will be worth every penny. i just got the sg3 and couldnt be happier, this phone will blow any phone out of the water including the iphone…boo on the iphone….go with samsung and TMOBILE!!!

  • Yozo

    I plan on buying the Note2 the day it is available. I got to try out a Note2 today. Per Samsung reps I spoke with today, they believe it will start selling mid-November. They know about the Oct 24th launch event. I hope TmobileUSA oopsies and sells it earlier.

    • Get_at_Me

      tmobile did sell the gs3 weeks earlier than other carriers

  • Wilma Flintstone

    I’m hoping they sell the GNote 2 in that nice Woodgrain Brown color as well at some point. Great phone though.

    Now to see what Jolla Mobile has in store for their MeeGo phones. Then I make … THE DECISION!!! O.O

  • Yozo

    Samsung reps are telling me it will be mid-November that the Note2 will be release date. Hope they are wrong. I want the Note2 as soon as possible.

  • mbcls

    anyone coming with me? let’ go and stand in line now! haha

  • clay

    selling my note today for $450! saving up for the note 2! is 450 a good deal?

    I spoke to a T-MOBILE REPRESENTATIVE this morning. she hinted me that the NOTE II is going on sale the 24th at 10 am. Great! !!!!!! Defantly picking a 32 gb white that day……. Stratospharic upgrade from my VIBRANT LOL.
