Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Coming to Sprint?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might be heading to Sprint at some point later this year, this according to a leak that occured today.
A user on XDA-Developers forums has seemingly outed the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 after he sifted through some Samsung RDF files (Internet Explorer only), found a device called the Samsung SPH-L900, and then confirmed that the RDF is indeed for the Sprint Galaxy Note 2.
RDF files are the files that reveal the design and development specs for a phone.
Read: T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 Rumored.
The files list the SPH-L900 as having similar specifications to the already announced Galaxy Note 2, which Samsung introduced at an Unpacked event in Berlin, Germany, shortly before the start of IFA 2012.
Here are the specifications listed within the RDF files for the SPH-L900:
- Exynos 4412 processor
- 1280 x 720 resolution display
- Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
- Support for EVDO, DOrA, WiFi and LTE
- 2 GB RAM
- 16 GB HDD (with expansion slot up to 32 GB)
- 8MP camera
These are all consistent with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and given that Sprint was heavily rumored to be launching the original Galaxy Note, it’s looking like the Now Network may actually be gearing up for a Galaxy Note 2 launch on its 4G LTE network.
This is the third U.S. carrier we’ve heard rumored for the Galaxy Note 2 as Sprint now joins both AT&T and T-Mobile as rumored carriers for the 5.5-inch phablet device.

A potential Verizon device has yet to emerge from the shadows and given that it already has an LG phablet on the market with the LG Intuition and seemingly has a 5-inch HTC device in the works, it’s possible that Verizon could pass on the Galaxy Note 2.
We should know for sure in a few weeks when we hear from carriers about a launch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is set to replace the original Galaxy Note phablet when it arrives in October. It features a 5.5-inch HD display, quad-core processor, new S-Pen stylus, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean amongst other features.

This is James Franklin Jr. from Columbus, Ohio! I am currently a Verizon Wireless Customer, and if Verizon Passes on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, when it looks like every other carrier will get this smartphone soon, I will be saying goodbye to Verizon after 12+ years of service, and saying hello to Sprint’s Unlimited Data and a new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Smartphone! Can You Hear Me Now Verizon? Good!!! Now tell Lg and HTC to go and shove their shitty upcoming Phablets up their asses, if you want me to continue paying $1200 a year for your service! Don’t fucking embarrass us Verizon by making us the laughing stock of all carriers because you were too fucking stupid to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 2! Looking on your website at the 10 or less 4G LTE Phones your customers have to choose from, you need all the premium smartphones you can get your hands on! I hope you hear me now!

I was all set to upgrade and get a galaxyS3 for the wife and a note2 for myself.. Why does verizon not want my business?
Check it out. Nobody wants a 4:3 tablet. You dont get full screen video, and its harder to hold it because it is wide.

Nobody cares about Global capabilities Verizon.
People want a large screen phablet they can hold in their hand.

The LG Intuition is an absolute piece of garbage. If they don;t carry the NOte 2, they are going to learn their lesson while the Intuition sits there while other carriers sell millions of the Note 2. The LG phone is so badly designed that the stylus it ships with does not fit in the phone. SO you have to carry your phone and stylus separately in your pocket. The LG phone is a polished turd compared to the Galaxy Note 2. Verizon must think their customers are complete morons to buy that half baked POS.
