Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Looks Good for November 29th

Yesterday, we told you that the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 would be going up for pre-order today, which it then did. However, we also told you that the release date for the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 might be November 29th. At the time, it seemed outlandish. But it looks like that date has been all but confirmed today by an internal Verizon screenshot.

Droid-Life unearthed a piece of evidence that backs up our report from yesterday. It seems, rather sadly, that the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 won’t be available until the end of November and specifically on November 29th.

That date comes two days after the November 27th ship by date for the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon’s website and that means it looks good for the in-store Galaxy Note 2 release date on Verizon.

The Galaxy Note 2 won’t hit Verizon until November.

Obviously, this is not what prospective Verizon Galaxy Note 2 wanted to hear as it will come several weeks after the launch of the AT&T model, which arrives on November 9th, and more than a month after Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular release their versions of the Galaxy Note 2.

This is just another headache in a series of them for Verizon customers looking to get the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. First, the carrier decided to wait until the last possible day to announce anything and then, when it did, it didn’t offer a release date. Then, yesterday, the device was confirmed to have an annoying Verizon logo on the home button of the device, something that no other carrier decided to put on their devices.

And now, it seems the device won’t launch for more than a month.

Luckily, it will be out before the end of the holiday season which means that those who are looking to pick up this 5.5-inch phablet as a gift will still be able to do so, presuming it doesn’t sell out over the course of the next month.

Verizon placed the device up for pre-order today with a price of $299.99. That nets customers a 16GB Galaxy Note 2, a device that offers a massive display, S-Pen stylus, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, quad-core processor and of course, 4G LTE data speeds.

    The 27th date is probably for those who pre ordered, and 29th for those who buy in the store. Still very disappointing since I pre ordered and want it now!

      I hear ya…I pre-ordered today, but with an 11/27 or 11/29th delivery date, I really wonder why I bothered. I guess it could guarantee we get them if they run out, and, I have read a rumor that pre-orders may go out 10/29, but I doubt it. I really wanted 32GB, but I guess a card will do.

    • Nick says

      same here but atleast we know that we will get it then and not have to wait longer when it sells out

    Just curious if anyone has any information if the 32gb or 64gb will be coming out? I really don’t want the 16gb one. Thanks, guys.

    Your report from yesterday?! You completely stole what I posted on a different website, and called it your own finding!! You are pathetic, Adam.

    I’ve been waiting almost two years for Verizon to carry the Samsung Note. They never did carry the first Note, and now I have to wait again past the other carriers for the Note 2. If I were not forced to use Verizon since it is has the strongest signal to my home, I would have dumped them YEARS ago. How do they get away with this?

    That’s why I went to att. I should be getting my note 2 any day now. I was a loyal costumer to verizon for the last 8 years, they should have known better. smh.

    Just went to my local best buy and was told that the phone would be released on Verizon on the 11th.
