AT&T Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Pegged for October 21st
According to BGR, the carrier will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on AT&T on October 21st. Apparently, it will also be releasing the Lumia 920 as well though we heard previously that Windows Phone 8, the software that’s powering the Lumia 920, wouldn’t be out until October 29th at the earliest.
The Galaxy Note 2 release date fits as Samsung said that it would be launching the Galaxy Note 2 in the U.S. later this year with some regions getting it in October. AT&T was the original carrier of the Galaxy Note so it’s possible that it could be out in front of its competitors.
It’s also possible that other U.S. carriers will be getting the device around that time as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also rumored to be coming to Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular as well with Sprint, Verizon and U.S. Cellular likely hosting it on their 4G LTE networks.
Release dates for those four variants have yet to leak out.
The AT&T Galaxy Note 2 release date rumor follows yesterday’s news that the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 got a Wi-Fi certification meaning the device got closer to launch. The T-Mobile and Verizon variants have leaked out as well, but none have leaked out as extensively as the Sprint model.
The Sprint Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to include a quad-core Exynos processor along with 4G LTE and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The device is also supposed to feature most of the features of the international Galaxy Note 2 that launched back in August. This could mean that the other variants, including the one on AT&T, will feature 4G LTE and quad-core power.
Samsung did not confirm that to be the case in August so at this point its mere speculation.
Hopefully, October is the release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as interest in the United States is extremely high.
As for the Lumia 920, we previously heard that November 2nd was AT&T’s target date for the Windows Phone 8 device though it looks like the carrier may have moved those plans up.
We should know more as we get closer to launch.
