By  |  5 Comments

The Samsung Galaxy Note II release date on Sprint is October 25 with a $299 starting price.

Sprint is now officially the first U.S. carrier to announce Galaxy Note II release date, though other carriers already confirmed they will carry the 5.5-inch smartphone. AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile will likely announce availability of the phone in the near future.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is the first Samsung smartphone to ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which brings along Project Butter for a faster experience and Google Now. Jelly Bean also brings along improved notifications and a number of other improvements.

Like the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II features the S Pen stylus for easy note taking. The S Pen in the Galaxy Note II is longer and thicker than the one in the original Note, which should make it easier to handle. The new stylus also enables new features like AirView which makes it easy to view items in a menu without actually opening it. Watch our Galaxy Note 2 first impressions video below.

The Galaxy Note II packs in a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor and 2GB of RAM. The international version of the phone comes with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage, though Sprint hasn’t announced which option it will make available to users. Based on the Galaxy S III, it’s likely safe to assume that 16GB is an option.

    Sprint is not showing anything about the Note 2 anywhere on its website. Kind a strange considering it is supposed to go on sale in 9 days here.

    I don’t know George or G. It is the 28th. I still do not see mention of the Note II on the Sprint site.
