Those of you who have followed us yesterday should be able to recall that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge made it in our headlines once again, bringing good news for a change. While the smartphone was initially tipped to become a limited edition concept, yesterday we have come across clues suggesting that the smartphone could make its way towards the States via at least two carriers: AT&T and US Cellular. The information was revealed to us when the Galaxy Note Edge bearing the model number “SM-N915A” was spotted in the FCC database, confirming the smartphone’s compatibility with the respective carriers’ LTE bands.
UPDATE: Unfortunately for US Cellular subscribers, the carrier has denied that the Edge will make it on its smartphone roster. After all, the model number is SM-N915A which indicates that it’s an AT&T bound device.
Today we circle back to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, as the model designated for T-Mobile in the States has also been spotted in the FCC filings.
T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Passes Through The FCC
As you can see from the screenshot above, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge bearing the model number “SM-N915T” has just passed through the FCC, revealing support for T-Mobile’s LTE bands (Band 12, 2 and 4 respectively).
T-Mobile has already confirmed that it will carry the Note Edge, but just like in AT&T’s case, this comes as a hint that it might happen sooner rather than later. We’re waiting for Sprint and Verizon’s models to pop-up on our FCC radar any day now.
However, the most important question is: should the Galaxy Note Edge be launched in the US roughly at the same time as the Galaxy Note 4, which one of these two S Pen-oriented smartphones would you pick? Until we find out more on the smartphone’s whereabouts, feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
