Samsung Announces Galaxy Note II For T-Mobile, All Four Major US Carriers

Now this is how we like to start our mornings as Samsung announces the release of the Galaxy Note II inside the US for all four major US carriers and US Cellular. The Note II will be optimized for US networks with 4G LTE and HSPA+42 connectivity, 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD slot, enhanced S Pen and S Pen apps, and a larger, thinner, lighter form factor than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t revealed specific dates or pricing, but Samsung clearly is ready to put its best foot forward going into the holiday season with two flagship devices on every major US carrier.

The press release confirms the Galaxy Note II will ship inside the US with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, and you did read that right, the quad-core exynos processor is paired with HSPA+ connectivity, which is fantastic, but we had a little sliver of hope T-Mobile might future proof with LTE on board. No such luck.

The Note II will be available in Marble White or Titanium Grey, with flip-cover back plates available in Titanium Gray, Marble White, Blue, Pink, Mint, Lime Green, and Orange as seen in the image above.

T-Mobile press release:

Hi—T-Mobile is excited to partner with Samsung to bring the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note II to our customers. As T-Mobile’s first smartphone to be powered by a quad-core processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note II leverages T-Mobile’s 4G (HSPA+42) network for fast, incredible performance.

Featuring a stunning 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Note II is the perfect all-in-one device for blending productivity, entertainment and connectivity. We will have more details to share in the coming weeks.


The full Samsung press release is below:

Samsung Mobile Introducing Galaxy Note® II in Time for the Holidayswith AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular

 Redesigned S Pen and apps, sharing capabilities and quad-core Exynos™ processor enhances productivity, creativity and performance

DALLAS — September 19, 2012 — Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) – the No.1 mobile phone provider in the United States1 – will launch the Galaxy Note® II in the U.S. with five major carriers by mid-November. Exact pricing and retail availability will be announced by each of the carriers.

 Optimized for the fastest 4G LTE* and HSPA+ 42 networks, the Galaxy Note II combines some of the best capabilities of the Galaxy S® III with an enhanced S Pen and new S Pen apps, the processing power to multitask like a PC, with a larger screen yet in a thinner, lighter form factor. The Galaxy Note II enables consumers that want a larger format device to create, collaborate and now share original content faster and easier than before.

“The original Galaxy Note® created a new category of smartphones by combining the best of a smartphone with the best of a tablet. In less than a year, Samsung sold more than 10 million globally demonstrating the category is taking hold,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. “The new Galaxy Note II is a significant leap forward for the category.”

Power & Performance

Galaxy Note II marks the U.S. debut of Samsung’s Exynos™ 1.6 GHz quad-core processor optimized for LTE networks. It has 2GB of internal RAM; and comes with 16 GB of onboard file storage and supports up to 64GB of additional memory with a microSD® card. Collectively, these deliver easy multitasking, lightning fast screen transitions, powerful browser performance and minimal app load time.

The Galaxy Note II is the first Samsung smartphone to launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which bringsstunning graphical capabilities and an upgraded Google Now service, including new features such as contextual search. It is also a SAFE-designated device, which means it has additional security features to safe-guard sensitive data and communications.

The Galaxy Note II has a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED™ touchscreen with 16:9 aspect ratio, the standard for true HD video viewing, and comes with a 3,100 mAh battery, which is 24 percent larger than the original Galaxy Note.

Despite the much larger battery, the device weighs slightly less than the original Galaxy Note. As a result of a narrower bezel on all four sides of the screen, the screen is larger but the overall device is narrower. The Galaxy Note II is available in Marble White and Titanium Gray color options.

Create & Collaborate

At the heart of the Galaxy Note II and the ability to create and collaborate is the S Pen™, which has been ergonomically redesigned to provide a more precise and natural writing and drawing experience. The new S Pen can sense 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, four times more than the original S Pen.

When the new S Pen is removed from the Galaxy Note II, it automatically launches the S Pen menu, whichopens a new home screen that allows one-touch access to most used S-Pen applications. Keeping track of the S Pen is simple now too because a visual and audible alarm appears if the user forgets to put the S Pen back inside the device.

The S Pen’s advanced features provide the ability to capture ideas, inspiration and information instantly, andto combine handwriting with any digital content directly on the screen, such as adding new calendar appointments by writing the event details directly on the day of the week, signing or adding handwritten notes to an email.

Selecting and cropping text, images or other content on the Galaxy Note II with the S Pen is very similar to a traditional “click-mouse” experience. When the S Pen’s side button is pressed down, the S Pen recognizes that users want to clip or edit the selected content on the screen. Users can draw precise lines around the content to be cropped out, highlighted or copied into another application.

Key applications of the S Pen include:

·         Easy Clip feature allows users to instantly outline and crop any content on the screen in any shape to save, share or paste. Once done cropping the image, users can freely edit the cropped content through coloring, shading, or their own personal handwriting.

  • Air View allows users to hover with the S Pen over an email, calendar entry, image gallery or video to preview the content without having to open it or wait for screen transitions. This feature also enables users to preview Web site content without opening the full site. Air View provides a title description for unrecognizable icons in various applications.

·         Quick Command uses the S Pen to quickly activate applications and services people use most often. The command pad appears with one upward swipe on the screen with the S Pen button pressed down. Users can send an email, make a call or search a location with pre-registered and customized S Pen stroke marks made on the command pad.

  • Idea Sketch allows users to easily add illustrations by handwriting keywords on the S Note. It provides illustration images that match the handwritten keywords. It’s a fancy illustration match function that will allow users to express, organize and visualize ideas in a more innovative and creative way. Users can even customize and add in their own illustrations library.

·         Photo Notes allows users to create handwritten notes on the back of digital photos.

Multitask & Share

The Galaxy Note II takes multitasking to the next level by enabling consumers to launch multiple windows on one screen, including high definition video. Multitasking features include:

·         Popup Note lets users open an S Note instantly as a pop-up window to jot down a quick note during a phone call, checking email or watching a video.

·         Popup Video extends the concept of ‘Popup Play.’ While watching a video, with the touch of a button, the video will become a floating window on the display. The video will continue to play and it can be re-sized or repositioned to any part of the GALAXY Note II’s screen. This versatility means that users are free to load other applications beneath it to browse online or work in other apps such as email, calendar or text messaging.

·         Popup Browser launches a new browser window when a user clicks on a link embedded in an email.

The Galaxy Note II contains many of the popular, real-life content sharing features introduced in June on the Samsung Galaxy S™ III including:

·         S Beam – Tap back of Galaxy Note II against another S-Beam-enabled device to share large video files, documents or S Notes in seconds without using data service.

·         Share Shot – Seamlessly share pictures taken with Galaxy Note II’s 8 megapixel camera to other phones from up to 200 feet away.

·         Burst Shot/Best Shot – Capture rapid-fire still pictures with zero shutter lag; choose picture with optimal colors, lighting and clarity from Best Shot image recommendations.

·         AllShare Cast™ and GroupCast™ have been expanded on the Galaxy Note II. Share premium video content, mobile games and movies and TV shows from Samsung Media Hub wirelessly with Samsung Smart TVs, laptops, tablets and other consumer electronics.

Customize & Accessorize

·         Protective Flip Cover – Samsung’s unique flip cover enhances the look of the Galaxy Note II with a premium leather front and glossy backing, while providing privacy and protection. The Protective Flip Cover comes in seven vibrant colors to customize the Galaxy Note II, including Titanium Gray, Marble White, Blue, Pink, Mint, Lime Green, and Orange.

·         S Pen with Eraser – This ergonomic, full-featured S Pen features a button for gestures and an eraser tip for easy corrections. This updated version of Samsung’s original S Pen truly mimics the feel of a pen or pencil.

    Just got S3 in July… No upgrades left…
    Samsung is making me spend another $500… Well worth it. Iphone5 looks like a toy compared to Note 2..
    1.6 Quad , oh my..

    • Luckily I still have my upgrade BUT I love the size of the GS3 so I may just hold onto that. THis is AMAZING what Samsung is doing with the GS3/GN2 launches, I was hoping they’d do this and they are! Amazing – D

      • Try $700. If other carriers are listing it for $299, you can bet the it will be $299 down payment on value with another $400 in installments.

        • randomnerd_number38

          And probably 350 on Classic plans after a mail-in rebate.

        • T-mobile never sells a cell phone device for 700 the highest has been the gs3 at I think either 649.99 or 629.99

      • note_lover

        The GS3 is an awesome phone too, either one is would be an excellent choice for a phone!

    • $500? You won’t get off that easy. At least $600, probably more.

    • nycplayboy78



    • WirelessRefugee

      Well patience pays off. Just wait a few months and get it for $400 on eBay.

      • note_lover

        this is true :)

    • note_lover

      I know! The iPhone 5 makes me laugh every time I see it! It really does look like a toy! People say how dumb the Note 2 would look up by people’s head! Now the iPhone 5 will look dumb and like a kid’s toy, it’s so small lol!

  • A

    I hope it really does come in November, the battery on my Mytouch 4g is running on it’s last legs and I’m certain it won’t make it to December….

    • Ash

      Why do people down vote you for this? What’s wrong with his comment?

      • note_lover

        ? don’t know either? Maybe some people are just so negative and hateful that they can’t stand themselved ;)

  • DJ Lawless Oneâ„¢

    I will be buying the unlocked T-mobile or international version for use on Cincinnati Bell.

  • JB

    I know I just got a S III,but Samsung take my money!! I’m definitely getting of these bad boys!

    • BJ

      you know you thought the same thing

  • note24me

    can’t wait! searching for a case(ebay) right now. :)

    • note_lover

      I’ve been doing that as well lol!

  • note2eatsapplepie5.

    what’s with the girly back plates colors?

    • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

      Um, women like them.

      • fanbot

        “also shes pretty hott”

        Oh yeah? prove it…;p

        • fixxmyhead

          Lol Well it just happens that I have dirty pics of her on a website which I could give u links but I don’t think they would be appropriate here . Maybe if u pm me

      • theking_13

        There are no Samsung backplates on the Galaxy Nexus… So of COURSE she doesn’t use them. -__-

        • fixxmyhead

          Oh man not u again. The point is there cheap accessories to some of us and are useless. Just the phone alone is fine. No need to go overboard with stupid little things like a screen protector,case,charm, holster, etc

        • theking_13

          If you want to carry your phone with nothing on it that’s fine, most people prefer cases. If your “hot” wife doesn’t use cases, that’s cool. The majority of people use them however, which is why there are companies that only make cases, and nothing else.

        • fixxmyhead

          Yes do want links too? There a little x rated. ; ) pm me and I’ll give u some

        • note_lover

          Def have to have the cases, covers, screen protectors, etc. I want to protect my investment against myself lol!

      • That entire conversation got way out of hand, I’ve removed it. Keep on topic.

        • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

          Sorry, I just meant that to be a smart-assed comment.

    • steveb944

      Some metrosexual men like em too. If it was a darker green I’d buy

      • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

        Metrosexual is still a thing? I thought it was rendered obsolete by dirty hipsters.

        • steveb944

          Haha, so true

    • Ash

      Those are the carriers’ colors.

  • Paul

    OMG OMG OMG!!!
    I wanna thank everyone that made this possible; my parents for giving the intelligence to research things before I buy them, T-Mobile for bringing back truly unlimited 4G data, Carly for being smart and beautiful…BUT NOT YOU APPLE! No, no thanks to apple…douchebags.
    Can’t wait for this release.

  • mreveryphone

    Please let there be a D30 case for this beast. Galaxy s4 who???

  • ccnet005

    Great! Christmas in October!
    Now I need to have all my shirt and pant pockets resized for this phone-zilla.

  • note2eats-applepie5

    all the covers are girly colors lol!

    • ccnet005

      Uh, you don’t understand.
      These colors will attract the babes, that’s what we need!

      • Paul

        Agreed, but plaid would have been better. Maybe it’s me…or the scotch talking.

      • 21stNow

        I wouldn’t approach a guy carrying a phone in a pink case. But, I’m sure that I aged out of the “babe” category a while ago.

        • babesonly

          If you aged out of the “babe” category, I wouldn’t want to attract you either

    • Bajamin

      Why are you so afraid of a color? Colors are colors, are you that insecure?

      • Exaaaactly, its funny how “dudes” try to prove their manliness by being homophobic. lol or at least hinting at that.

      • note_lover

        lol! I can’t remember exactly what the colors are but if I recall, aren’t there Black and White covers for people that don’t want the other ‘girly’ colors?

    • GwapoAko

      Real men get Pink case!!! :0)

      • note_lover


    • Hello….. it’s call Ebay. You can get almost any kind of case for the phone you want and in any color you want for dirt cheap versus buying the cases directly from T-Mobile. Leather, pleather, plastic, rubber, silicon…. you name it, some seller on ebay has it.

      • note_lover

        they are actually pretty good cases too.

    • Ash

      Carriers’ colors.

  • Guest

    Humina humina humina humina!

  • Humina humina humina humina!

  • All I need is for the device to come in white. I gives not one one f about anything else.

    • guest

      says it comes in white in the article

      • fixxmyhead

        i think i see what u did there lol

    • BJ

      Your like So GHETTO!!!

  • RotaryP7

    Wow. Good news for TMO. They finally have a top tier phone. And wow, first US phone with quad-core specs. Finally. I mean if anyone wants a Note II, no doubt the best carrier to get it with is TMO. Even though I like the iPhone and whatnot.. This kills the new iPhone 5.

    • monkeybdb

      what do you mean “finally have a top tier phone”? We got the S3 first, we have had the S2, we had the One S, we had the Amaze, we had the Sensation etc. pretty sure all those devices were top tier at the time of their release.

      • 21stNow

        Scratch the One S, as the One X was the top-tier device of the One series from HTC.

      • note_lover

        That’s what I was thinking, especially the GS3 because it was just released. I got the HTC Sensation when it first came out (first HTC phone) and it was a top tier at the time. Then came the awesome GS2…TMO has gotten some great phone over the past year or so.

  • nd5

    Okay, so FINALLY, it looks like T-Mobile has gotten something right. And a huge THANK YOU to Samsung as well. It’s great to be able to get a top quality phone from a top quality manufacturer, at the same time as everyone else does.

    One question, this phone supports HPSA+42 and LTE. Will this phone support T-Mobile’s LTE once it’s lit up next year?

    • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

      The answer to your question is in the story. Re-read.

  • Dakota

    Poor people who signed 2 yr deals for note 1 on tmo

    • steveb944

      Idiot move considering that we had rumors for the 2. Maybe t-mobile will allow some kind of exchange or credit?

      • wakwak

        if only they always visit tmonews.

  • predation

    no LTE-A support? i’m sad.

    • fixxmyhead


  • farfromovin

    I hope they are under the $650 mark or I may have to get a second job lol. The wife wants one too!

  • If this is quad core how will it work on T-Mobiles network at full
    HSPA+42 speed?

    • randomnerd_number38

      Right now it’s unclear, but one of two things happened: 1) Samsung got a new SOC with integrated dual-channel HSPA+ 42 AND their Exynos quad core, OR 2) It will have a separate chip for processing and the radio. Seriously hoping it’s the former for better battery life.

  • Dj64

    Great news. I probably will get it. And for the people that bashed me for saying that buying the note 1 was a bad idea, you can kiss my a$$

    • randomnerd_number38

      Nice. Must be fun coming back to this post and getting to say you were right :P

      • Dj64

        It feels good because i was ganged up on for voicing my opinion

        • randomnerd_number38

          Yup, and now that they’ve been proven wrong they’re nowhere to be found, of course. Too bad the groupthink around here was on the wrong side, probably cost a least a few people their upgrades for an inferior phone when they could have just waited a few months for the Note 2.

    • WirelessRefugee

      There were people bashing you for holding off? I thought most people who hang in here would have known the Note 2 was in the rumor mill, especially when stores started dumping Note 1 inventories, which IMO back then confirmed the Note 2 would be hear for the holidays.

      It does provide pleasure to be right though. So much pleasure you want to lay back on the bed, head on the pillow, and have a smoke, even if you don’t smoke.

      • Dj64

        Yea they really attacked me mob style. One even claimed to be a tmo employee….

    • note_lover

      The Galaxy Note has been the phone for me since the day I laid eyes on it! Can’t wait for the Note2, come on T-Mobile!!!!

  • Guest

    Whats the camera specs?…

    • fixxmyhead

      same as s3

  • get off of me hoe

    This is a big plus for me hspa+ 42 and lte when they do have lte next year I was holding off for a nexus phone but I’ll see what happen but the note 2 is on my mind.

  • abraham lincoln

    Us Cellular already has it for preorder $300.00 with 2 year contract

  • randomnerd_number38

    This’ll be awesome, wonderful news until T-Mobile releases for 50-100 bucks more than other carriers and we have another 200 comments that look like this: “OMG Y U SOOO TURRIBEL T–MOBUL WHO CARS ABOUT $1100 SAVINGS IN 2 YEARS OVR OTHER CARRIERS I WANT SAEV 50 BUCKS NAAAAOOOOOO! GOODBYE 4EVER SPRINT HEER I COM!”

    • 21stNow

      Sorry, I’m one of those that think that it should be the same price that the other carriers sell it for.

      • theking_13

        Then have fun at Sprint. :)

  • taron19119

    This is what im taking about now if T-Mobile can release this on 9/21/2012 all Will be good

    • This isn’t launching on Friday, sorry!

    • note_lover

      That would have been great :)

  • Chris Stubbs

    So Samsung announces an announcement? When is it coming out again?

  • fixxmyhead

    wheres that guy that said dual core s4 snapdragon

  • Paul Birkbeck

    getting my upgrade in february, definitely getting this, and the wife is getting the relay 4g

  • huldb

    I am kind of confused why the tmobile phone won’t offer LTE. Isn’t their LTE freq the same as ATT’s? Why would be be hard to add that to the phone?

    • GwapoAko

      Tmobile will start their LTE i think next year.Their 4G speed is comparable with LTE too. So do not worry about the speed :0)

      • huldb

        ahh I know, but it’s just the fact that if its the same, why wouldn’t they just add it because its an easy add on?

      • Baboy

        Pangit ako

        • GwapoAko


      • note_lover

        Does anyone know (if we purchase the Note 2 and TMO did upgrade to LTE) if we’d still be able to use the phone (or anyone phone running on HSPA+)? Not that I’m too worried about it but was just wondering about this since everyone has phones that are set to work on TMO’s HSPA+)?

  • steveb944

    YES YES YES!!! I am seriously considering this, or else I’ll have someone in my family get it because I love this device. If only I didn’t have my Amaze still

  • jedifarfy

    Sooooo how fast can Tmo take my preorder for a white with an orange flip cover. I think I’ll save my upgrade until I can handle this and see how I like it. I’m willing to bet I’ll be ‘SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY RIGHT NOW”, but we’ll see. :P

  • bryck


    • Mirad77

      They’ll software lock the LTE then later on a minor software update enable the LTE. That is my wishful thinking of course.

      • bryck

        I Hope so to.

      • note_lover

        That would be perfect! Let’s hope you’re right :)

    • JBrowne1012


      all caps for emphasis

  • They are finally listening, quad core love. WOW…I can’t wait. I don’t want to let go of my GS3, so I will just put it down for a while when this comes. Rotate man, rotate. Note II is the best off both worlds…

    Pricing, I say $599 off contract. What do you think?

    • GwapoAko

      Hopefully!!! We can get it for that price S3 is $549, Gnote1 is $499. Makes sense!!! Yippeee goodbye! iPhone 4$!!!!

  • Vampy

    These have removable batteries right? I’m about to burn my One S for running out of juice all the time.

    • note_lover

      Yes, they are supposed to.

  • nycplayboy78

    OMFG….I so want this phone NOW….I will be buying it flat out at T-Mobile…I just purchased the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet today….I so wished that this would have come out in October versus November but good things come to those who wait…If the rumors are true that the Samsung Galaxy S IV is coming out in March 2013…Well here I come too :)

    You are doing good things Sammy and don’t let anyone tell you different :)

    • 21stNow

      The Galaxy Note 10.1 is sweet! It’s everything that a tablet should be.

      • nycplayboy78

        OMG…Thank you so much for letting me know that..I am so excited I can’t wait :)

    • ccnet005

      I bought a Note 10.1 open box special last week at bestbuy, I love it!
      Now my big note will have a little note to keep it company sometime soon.

    • note_lover

      I actually read somewhere that the GS4 was only a rumor (Samsung denied it as well). It was supposedly an Apple person/fan, trying to sabotage sales of the S3 & the Note 2. This way they wouldn’t purchase one of the recent Samsung phones, and wait for a phone that isn’t even going to be released in March 2013. Anyone else heard that?

  • Richard Yarrell

    Tmobile should be proud they have done all they could for it’s customers for the year of 2012. They have a wonderful network very stable great battery life and unlimited data. With the current Galaxy S3 and upcoming Galaxy Note 2 and upcoming Galaxy Nexus 2 as well as the recent Htc announced Windows devices Tmobile customers should be proud of it’s device choices. It’s a great time to be rocking android and Tmobile. The Galaxy Note 2 will be a day one purchasefor me without question . My Galaxy S3 is just wonderful but I await the Galaxy Note 2 having the best of both worlds..


      T-Mobile should thank us for demanding the FCC/FTC/DOJ stop the merger.

  • Josue

    just take my damn money allready!

  • guest

    I cant wait to get this phone! Gonna have to invest in some cargo pants tho. Lol

  • Bonay

    Ill be waiting and hoping Google will have it as one of the five phones it said it will have in November. That way it wont have t-mob bloat on it and Google will get my money and not T-Mob.


    What, no black case? Someone think of we goths out here.

  • JBrowne1012

    Perfecto!!!!Me want! give ME give ME nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ahhh yes

  • jian9007

    Very happy that T-Mobile is getting this even though I don’t want it. Old quad-core exynos is a no-go this far into the year. With the new LG having the newer quad-core S4 pro with Adreno 320 graphics, I can’t buy a phone that is a step back. A9 architecture of the chip is just too dated compared to the custom S4 chipset. Like Apple’s new A6 chip, the S4 dual and quad-core chip uses its own ARMv7 based processor design. This allows a faster FPU than A9 chips (VFPv4 vs. VFPv3) which is the same as the newer A15 based chips (like the Samsung Exynos 5 dual which has not been released in a phone yet).

    So for many of you it is a great opportunity to get very nice phone, it’s just not for me. Still a great phone to get for many though, and I’m excited that T-Mobile is getting it at the same time as the other carriers.

  • GS3

    oh my God.. i sooo love samsung.. this is really interesting.. !

    • GS3

      and tmobile!

      • note_lover

        Both of them are making a lot of people happy! Can’t wait!

  • GS3

    i hope this comes out in october..

    • note_lover

      You and me both!

  • fanbot

    There’s my next phone!!!

  • Going mad for GN2

    Yes baby!!!! But I don’t buy the lack of lte support that easily, I mean It Just doesn’t make sense. I think their just trying to surprise us with a future update while keeping the lte chip and not saying anything. If that’s not case than I’ll have to go for the 64gb international version, or at&t version to use on t-mobile. What ever case…..TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY!!!

  • FUiPhone5

    Hey we should all line up two nights before and in full force so we could show all those stupid Isheep’s witch device really has more fan base and customers. Gooooo Samsung!!!!! We’re with you!!!! Trust me we’re gonna win, you have to be blind to not see it.

  • SDJB

      I figure you’ve got about a month to decide…I’m going for the Note 2 myself.

  • ctkatz

    i’m a size king. i will likely upgrade to a rumored sgs 4 or this, but 32gb internals plz or gtfo. i don’t trust the cloud. i want my stuff on me instead of on a server i may not be able to get to.

    • note_lover

      I agree 100%, I keep everything on me as well. I also back up on my computers or flash drives.

    I can say without a doubt this is my next phone, I mean tablet, or is it phablet. Hell, I dunno. I am getting one, so I can look like an uʍolɔssɐ walking down the street talking on it.

    Seriously, what I am going for is the large, but not too large, display. There’s so many doors open when the display is larger like this. A Nav for the car, movie viewer, and even browsing on the Net is possible without having to pinch to zoom all the time.

      Reading on it, is going to be awesome! So glad Samsung created the Notes! How’s that for innovation and I applaud Samsung for taking a chance on the Note 1…can’t wait!


    one negative with the flip cover is you can’t see the notification light ,

    • note_lover

      So there ‘is’ def a Notification light on the note 2? I’ve been wanting to ask that question but kept forgetting and could never seem to find somewhere that could verify it either way.

    My upgrade isn’t until April, if I threaten to close my account would they be able to push that up a little?

    • note_lover

      Good question but I doubt it

  • BigMixxx


    I was gonna wait for the next Nexus and pay full price for it. THIS is the phone…

    Good specs, right on with one version of the phone for all of the networks….

    Paranoid android here I come…

  • Rob Daman

    if they price it aggressively unlike how the galaxy s3 was higher than the competitors i’m going to jump on it.


    Good job t-mo, now all i have to do is decide between this or the xperia sl or a nexus, sweet jesus glad to be alive in 2012

    Next will see people holding their tablets up to their ears. This is totally absurd and unnecessary! Tards, carry on…

    • note_lover

      Get with it, small phone screens are becoming a thing of the ‘past’! Just check the statistics and surveys!

  • note_lover

    I don’t know if anyone is still following this particular post/article but I have a couple of questions that I still don’t have answers to so if someone could answer them, that would be great.
    1-When the Note 2 gets released on TMO, will they offer the 32 and / or 64 GB or only the 16GB?
    2-Is there an actual flashing Notification LED light (on the Note 2) to let one know that you have a text, missed call or an email?
    3-Does the Note 2 have an actual FM Radio, to listen to music on local stations that aren’t streaming through Data?

    I want the Galaxy Note II badly. I can do a lot of work with that phone especially when I’m away. When is the phone officially comes out? Do anyone Know?
