Samsung Galaxy Note LTE AT&T bound in 2012

Much like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the UK and Europe gained access to the Android device before our cousins over the pond in the USA, and it’s the same with Sammy’s hybrid smartphone/mini tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note; however the word is the US will gain the Galaxy Note via AT&T at some point next year.

According to and article over on Phone Arena by way of the Pocket Now guys, AT&T will deliver the Samsung SGH-1717, which is a US version of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Samsung Galaxy Note during CES.

Spec wise the word is the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note will still retain that 5.3-inch 720p touch screen; however, will differ from the international model by sporting 4G LTE connectivity and will pack a Qualcomm 1.5GHz MSM8660 dual core processor due to Samsung’s Exynos chip not being compatible with LTE yet.

There’s no real word on what Android OS the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note will ship with but it is expected it will ship with Gingerbread aboard and receive an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich at a later point.

Other specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note include of course that S Pen stylus, 8 megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash, 2 megapixel front facing camera and 1080p video.

So will any of our readers over in the good old US of A be hoping to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE from AT&T once it becomes available?

  1. I ordered the UK version and have been using it it Canada since November. I LOVE this phone. From what I have heard the Exynos processor is faster and the GPU it is coupled with is superior so I don’t mind no LTE. Not to mention my carrier is HSPA+ anyway. I doubt I will have any gadget envy once the North American Version is released. 
    Oh, did I mention, I LOVE THIS PHONE?!!!

    WHEN???? I was about to order a Skyrocket but decide to google 2012 Samsung AT&T Phones and found this article. I’ve been wanting the Note since I read about it over the summer.

  3. Eats up the battery. Everything is choppy in comparison to even a 1ghz
    single core Exynos processor. Basically, if you want LTE you have to
    have a crippled device. Basically you put a Exynos Galaxy Note next to a
    Snapdragon Galaxy Note, it will show you just how laughably
    underwhelming and falsely misleading the Qualcomm Snaptragon processing
    “power” really is. Don’t hold your breath on this device unless
    Qualcomm is going to put a better processor in it.
