While the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 U.S. launch date is set for October 24th in the United States, its release date on various carriers remains unclear. However, over the last few days, several potential clues have cropped up and today, another Galaxy Note 2 U.S. release date clue emerged.
In a press release, AT&T today announced the LG Optimus G, set for release on November 2nd. Interestingly, in that press release, AT&T refers to the LG Optimus G as its first quad-core smartphone powered by 4G LTE data speeds.
What this means is that the Galaxy Note 2, a device with 4G LTE speeds and a quad-core processor, might be AT&T’s second device to be released with these specifications which means that the carrier may not be launching it until November.
Last week, we told you that the Galaxy Note 2 U.S. release date might happen in October in the U.S. And that remains a possibility considering the Galaxy Note 2 is launching on a grand total of five different carriers in the U.S. including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S Cellular and Verizon. The fact that Canadian carriers are getting the device on October 30th also bodes well for a possible October launch on some carriers.
However, it could be that we’ll see staggered launch dates like we saw with the Galaxy S III and that could mean that some carriers launch in October and some in November.
If this press release for the LG Optimus G is accurate, then it could mean that AT&T, at the very least, won’t be launching the Galaxy Note 2 until the middle of November, a time frame that Samsung originally gave to the device.
We also saw a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 press image offer a November 15th date
, another sign that a middle-of-the-month release date might actually occur on some American carriers.
Unfortunately, we’re likely going to have to wait until October 24th before we find out exactly when U.S. carriers plan to launch the Galaxy Note 2 and its massive new 5.5-inch display.
The Galaxy Note 2 is the successor to the original Galaxy Note phablet and it features a massive HD display, quad-core processor, 4G LTE data, two cameras, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google’s latest Android operating system.
