It would appear that several details about the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for Sprint
leaked to the surface today, seemingly confirming many of the device’s features and its release window.
A user by the name of Mr. Ed on Android Forums claims to have knowledge about Sprint’s Galaxy Note 2 and its plans for release. This, of course, is not the first time we’ve heard about the Sprint Galaxy Note 2. The device has leaked out twice before this but never as extensively.
According to Mr. Ed, Sprint will be releasing the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. That means either October, November or December. We assumed that this was going to be the case after Samsung said that the U.S. would be getting the device sometime later on this year but did not specify when.
He also says that the device will include most of the features that were announced back in August at Samsung’s Unpacked event before IFA 2012 in Berlin.
The Sprint Galaxy Note 2 will apparently come with a quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE which could mean that the Galaxy Note 2 is the first device to hit the U.S. with both a quad-core processor and 4G LTE.
In addition, it looks like the phone will indeed launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean when it launches in the United States later on this year.
At this point, this is all just rumor as Sprint nor Samsung has confirmed anything about the U.S. Galaxy Note 2 launch at this time. However, if those rumors are true, the Galaxy Note 2 could be an extremely intriguing device on Sprint and likely on other carriers as well.
The Galaxy Note 2 has been rumored for all five of the carriers that offer the Samsung Galaxy S III, a list that includes Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular.
The original Galaxy Note launched on AT&T, and later on T-Mobile.
