T-Mobile has seemingly confirmed the Samsung Galaxy Note, although the carrier has yet to give the device any specific release date.
A tweet from the T-MobileHelp Twitter account has confirmed the news, although the carrier remains coy about any of the specific details.
The device has been rumored to be coming to T-Mobile’s network for quite some time now but this is the first time that the carrier has acknowledged, publicly, that it will be carrying the Galaxy Note in the future.
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note has appeared on T-Mobile’s official Facebook page alongside a handful of other devices. It has appeared on an official ad for Galaxy devices. Accessories for the device have shown up in T-Mobile owned retail stores.
It even has a rumored release date of August 8th.
However, until today, T-Mobile had refused to acknowledge its existence. Now, this confirmation could have been a slip up or it could mean that an announcement and quite possibly a release date are on the way in the near future.
We assume that T-Mobile will offer up a pre-order period for the device and if it indeed launches on August 8th, we assume that the device will go up for pre-order in the next few weeks.
T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note is rumored to include the same S-Pen stylus, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a dual-core processor, an 8MP camera and the same 5.3-inch display that puts the device into the phablet family of devices rather than in the tablet or smartphone categories.
It’ll likely be the HSPA+ speeds that separate it from AT&T’s 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Note.
Samsung is also rumored to be putting out another new Galaxy Note in the Galaxy Note 2 which is rumored for an August unveiling at IFA in Germany.
That device is said to improve on just about everything from the Galaxy Note and is even rumored to boast a 5.5-inch display.
