Back in April was when we first heard about the possibility that T-Mobile might get the Galaxy Note in the near future and, as you perhaps may recall, we also explored the possibility that Sprint might also bring the phablet to its line-up. Unfortunately, Sprint’s Note pretty much bit the dust and, judging by the fact that no new information surfaced ever since, the initial rumor was no more than a Photoshop fail.
Samsung Galaxy Note at T-Mobile
On the other hand, the rumors about T-Mobile getting the Samsung Galaxy Note kept on coming and, not long after that, we were able to see some more evidence pointing to the existence of a device bearing the model number SGH-T879. The device in question corresponded with the Note in terms of specs so we were starting to be certain about the fact that T-Mobile is planning a new Samsung device for us.
So far every bit of information led us to believe that T-Mobile is indeed planning on launching the Galaxy Note on their network, especially considering it’s visit to the FCC, and now, according (and thanks to) CellPhoneSignal, we are in possession of a few official Samsung Galaxy Note pictures of the device, bearing the brand of T-Mobile.
T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Note Release Date
Alongside the freshly leaked pictures there was also information that the T-Mobile version will come in Navy Blue and HSPA+ 850/1900 MHz bands which indicate that the T-Mobile note could also be compatible with AT&T’s network. It’s also expected that the T-Mobile Note will come with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, but we hope it will bee a bug-free version because we really wouldn’t want to get our hands on a messy build like on the International Note.
As far as the Samsung Galaxy Note release date at T-Mobile goes, there’s obviously nothing certain at this point but, judging by what we’ve learned so far, July 11 is the date when the Galaxy Note should hit Magenta’s stores.
That’s it for now everyone, we’ll keep you posted. Until next time our question to T-Mobile customers is: Would you get the Note instead of the Galaxy S3? Let us know.
Thanks AndroidCentral for the heads-up regarding T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Note.
