It’s beginning to look like this screenshot could just possible be T-Mobile’s version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could very well be the reason what the original Galaxy Note on T-Mobile’s network had a very short run. The image shows SGH-T889, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and the UA proof is also telling us that it has a display sitting at 1280 x 720. This is speculation but keep in mind that T-Mobile’s original Galaxy Note was originally a SGH-T879, so it wouldn’t be wrong to think that a slightly higher number would reveal the Galaxy Note 2 for their network. I was kind of hoping that the Galaxy Note 2 would be AT&T or Verizon exclusive as T-Mobile’s network tends to be junk compared to those carriers. Still, let’s not jump to conclusions, it might just be a bit to early to start putting pieces together.
According to TMONEWS, T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 2 will be keeping its luxurious powerful quad core Exynos processor (made by Samsung) and will be running on the 42MB HSPA+ network. This would be pretty fantastic considering that it would be a very rare Samsung US device that was able to keep the Exynos processor rather than switching over to Snapdragon processors. I’m really curious (and I’m sure you are too) about this, it’s very hard to tell if it’s even a legitimate image. It’s something though, and hopefully all of you T-Mobile users will get to share the Galaxy Note 2 love.
Personally, it’s kind of surprising that a leak has already surfaced so quickly, which is why I’m kind of curious if it’s legit or not. It’s also very possible that this is the reason why the original Samsung Galaxy Note came off of T-Mobile’s shelves so early. Whatever the case is, it’ll be cool to see T-Mobile users get to use this behemoth even though I’d prefer it to be exclusive to Verizon or AT&T so that it’s full network power can be put to use. Either way though, any rumors of a Galaxy Note 2 incoming is newsworthy as many of us are itching to get our hands on one of these devices, especially after Samsung’s Unpacked event at the IFA in Berlin, Germany.
Is anyone excited to see the Samsung Galaxy Note II surface on T-Mobile’s network, or are you just kind of “eh” about it? I personally have mixed feelings about it, but again, any news on the Galaxy Note 2 is fantastic! Are you interested in getting a Galaxy Note II if it ends up arriving on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network later this year? T-Mobile did have a pretty good price on the original Galaxy Note, we’ll just have to see how things turn out with this new Galaxy Note variant in the coming months (sooner rather than later though!).
Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, along with any rumors you may have possibly seen surface about this specific handset! We’d love to hear them!
