T-Mobile Preparing Samsung Galaxy Note for US Release

The Samsung Galaxy Note for recently made an appearance at the website of the Federal Communications Commission or FCC, cloaked under the name SGH-T879. This device is rumored to be launched by T-Mobile, owing to the fact that images of the smartphone carrying the brand name had been spotted recently.

This arrival comes a bit late as the [easyazon-link asin=”B0061YRDX6″ locale=”us”]Samsung Galaxy Note[/easyazon-link] had been available since late 2011. Moreover, it is curious that T-Mobile is preparing for the smartphone’s release, right before the Samsung Galaxy S III makes its grand entrance in the US market sometime late this month up to early July.

In any case, the FCC has already given the necessary approval for the device’s 1700MHz HSPA band that will work with T-Mobile’s 3G network. The wireless company will offer this connectivity option alongside 850MHz and 1900MHz 3G. Yet, these figures once again make it doubtful whether the SGH-T879 will be headed to T-Mobile. Another rumor claims that the device will rather be offered by Mobilicity or Wind Mobile, Canadian wireless phone companies that offer 1,700MHz HSDPA AWS connectivity. Yet to further support the idea that T-Mobile will offer the device this year is the fact that the handset dubbed T879 is found on the list of products that the company will release soon.

If T-Mobile does push through with offering the Samsung Galaxy Note, the device will be the carrier’s first phablet offering. It will join the company’s other Samsung products on offer including the Samsung Galaxy II – White, Samsung Galaxy S II – Titanium, Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, among others.

T-Mobile is perhaps counting on the Samsung Galaxy Note’s immense popularity to encourage consumers to purchase it despite the presence of other options in the market. It may be recalled that Samsung was able to sell five million units of the device in only five months since its launch.

According to rumors, a T-Mobile device is slated to be launched this coming July 11th, but in all likelihood, this date is probably too early to be for the Samsung Galaxy Note.

  1. All this is well and good, but we had hoped that they would have a better screen, Full HD, like on the new LG screen, full 1920 x 1080P in an OLED, but NOT Pentile. And, completely water-proof and drop-proof, as well.

    We would also like to see them make their screen truly superambiphobic (that is: VERY water (hydrophobic) and oil (oleophobic) repellant, to cut down on smudges and fingerprints).

    A superambiphobic screen is able to keep itself completely clean of smudges, smears, water spots, oil stains, fingerprints, etc. Let’s get it on, Samsung! Recently I saw a friend’s phone after he signed in with gestures. From several feet away I could see the pattern he used smeared on the screen, even after several minutes of use. That is NOT secure, we NEED better glass, superambiphobic glass, to be exact.

    Face Unlock should be available.

    It should also try to be a bit more future-proof. 2GB of RAM and 32GB Internal storage these days is an absolute MINIMUM! We’d actually like to see 4 and 64, or more, standard, by the end of the year.

    For expanded storage it should have a microSD card slot able to handle at least 64GB, and a micro-USB3 port for external access and drives.

    The latest iteration of Bluetooth goes without saying, but so many aren’t paying attention, so I’ll say it. And for goodness sake, update and simplify pairing. Gracious what a mess everything seems to be, needlessly.

    Further, it should have Dolby Mobile 3 with support for 5.1 sound via HDMI out.

    Then, make sure it can play full HD for at least 10 or 11 hours, minimum.

    Let’s not forget an updated, more useful Stylus. The stylus should have a finer point, and the stylus INSIDE a full PEN-sized adapter should fit inside the case of the unit. It should have less lag. The current stylus is just too small to handle well, and the point is too broad for fine work.

    Voice control is a must.

    NFC is a MUST! And you should include some of your own NFC TecTiles as a sample, too, say 5 or 6 of them.

    Don’t forget, Android 4.1 should be loaded out of the box, with NO bloatware.

    Then, of course, you can make it a Nexus device, to avoid bloatware and speed up updates.

    Then, bring it to all carriers, as you did with the S III.

    NOW, Samsung, you are getting somewhere.

    Perhaps on the Galaxy Note 2.
