US wireless carrier T-Mobile, today announced the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note II will be arriving on T-Mobile’s network this fall. The new smartphone features T-Mobile’s largest smartphone screen — a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is T-Mobile’s first device with a quad-core processor, featuring Samsung’s 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor. In addition, the Galaxy Note II is T-Mobile’s first smartphone powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the device’s 3100mAh battery powers up to 15 hours of talk time.
The T-Moble’s largest 5.5-inch screen smartphone offers improved S Pen capabilities, and HSPA+ “4G” connectivity, though not LTE. The device will be compatible with T-Mobile’s 4G network, and it will come preloaded with a number of T-Mobile specific apps.
T-Mobile Galaxy Note II customers will have access to an exciting new racing game preloaded on the device, which will include three free levels. T-Mobile’s exclusive version of the racing game will be optimized to interact with a MOGA Mobile Gaming System, bringing an immersive, console-quality gaming experience to the palms of T-Mobile customers’ hands.
The Galaxy Note II also enables T-Mobile customers to bring their entertainment to the big screen by wirelessly sharing content, such as games, movies and TV shows on their smartphone, to any HDMI-capable TV via the AllShare Cast feature and AllShare Cast Wireless Hub accessory. The AllShare Cast Wireless Hub accessory is currently available in T-Mobile retail stores and at their website for $99.99.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available in Titanium Gray and Marble White color options. The smartphone is expected to be available nationwide at T-Mobile retail stores, select national retailers and dealers, and online via its website in the coming weeks.
There are no specific release dates and pricing about the Galaxy Note II. An earlier leaked report says that it’ll hit on October 24. But it is still confusing whether the scheduled date is right or not.
