Samsung Galaxy Note Heading to AT&T?



It appears that the Samsung Galaxy Note has again passed through the FCC and again has compatibility with AT&T’s bands. And while we still don’t have anything in the form of an official announcement from Ma Bell or Sammy, it’s looking like an announcement could be coming at some point before the holiday season ends.

Nothing is set in stone obviously, but this should definitely excite those of you that have been waiting for it.

The Galaxy Note that passed through the FCC just a short time ago has support for AT&T’s 850/1900MHz bands but has a different model number then the original device. This device is dubbed GT-N7000B.

We went hands on with the Galaxy Note back at IFA in Berlin and we absolutely loved it so we’re thrilled that progress is being made to get it to a carrier in the U.S.

Let’s just hope that happens sooner rather than later.

    This is awesome news. If true, I will totally opt for this over the Nexus. I just hope they don’t make hardware changes that affect the Note’s performance.

    The LTE Note that’s described in this article has a 1.5ghz Snapdragon processor. The original Note from Europe (which is awesome, I own one) has a 1.4ghz Exynos processor.

    For anyone who may read this and is not a tech nerd, clock speed, i.e. (1.5ghz, 1.2ghz) means nothing and has meant nothing for over 5 years. The Snapdragon processor is also found in the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE where users reported laggy transitions, bad gaming, and an overall laggy performance.

    Meanwhile, The Exynos is a very very high end processor SoC, it equals if not gives better performance than that of Tegra Processors in High-End Tablets.

    My advice to everyone is, just wait. By the time that the garbage USA LTE Note comes, the european note will be about $500-$600 USD. AT&T is known to throttle it’s LTE customers very fast as well.

    Throttling is when a network slows your speeds down to that of a snail, so ya don’t want that happening!

    I am wondering why the USA is light year behind in cell tech, is it the FCC or the crappy carriers in this country not letting these devices in to the US market. we get them when they are already out dated elsewhere
