Samsung’s Galaxy Note II variants for US carriers caught at FCC

Samsung recently announced the awesome, super big Android smart phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note II. But the launch of the device in the US was not yet confirmed. Now though, it looks like the smart phone may come to the States any time soon. How can we say that? Well, the three variants of the smart phone seem to have been through with the FCC recently. The new leaked images and details say so. Which are the three carriers that we are talking about? Its AT&T, T Mobile, and Verizon.

Engadget explains the three smart phones as follows:

The SGH-i317 looks to be the model for AT&T and Canadian carriers, having been greenlit for their key 3G and 4G bands while lining up with a brief available benchmark of the device sharing the Note II’s HD screen and use of Jelly Bean. The SCH-i605? Based on its inclusions of both CDMA and GSM, alone 700MHz LTE band and a past screen capture leak, it’s a dual-mode Note II destined for Verizon. As for the SGH-T889, it’s even more conspicuous beyond what we’ve already seen: the T889’s HSPA includes the 1,700MHz AWS frequency that T-Mobile will still call home for a long while. LTE likewise exists on the 1,700MHz and roaming-friendly 700MHz bands in possible instances of future proofing.

This is a real good news for people in the US who have been waiting to upgrade to the new Galaxy Note II from their first generation Galaxy Note, and also for people who have not had a Galaxy Note before and are waiting to enjoy the big screen for the first time.

For those who do not know, the massive smart phone comes with a 5.55 inch SUPER AMOLED multi touch screen capacitive HD display, a 1.6 GHz quad core processor, 8 MP of rear camera, 2 MP of front facing camera, the S Pen, and a lot of other goodies.
