Leak hints Sprint Galaxy Note 2 release inbound

It has been over a week now since Samsung first officially introduced the world to the Galaxy Note 2, and the device has got a lot of people excited for its release. Hopefully consumers in the US won’t have to wait so long for the new model as they did for the original, as T-Mobile customers have only recently been able to get their hands on the device. Now a new leak hints at a Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release is inbound.

As the guys over at Phandroid are reporting no US carriers have so far committed to announcing plans to provide their subscribers the device, but recently we told you of the prospect of the handset hitting T-Mobile. Since then it seems that Sprint are in line to offer the handset as a XDA user is claiming to have stumbled across a Sprint RDF, or a device profile.

The specifications match up nicely to what is known about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and they are also claiming to have got more confirmation that the carrier is going to provide the handset. The spec list includes the Exynos 4412 processor, 2GB of RAM, eight megapixel camera, 1280 x 720 screen resolution, Android 4.1.1, and 16GB of storage with microSD card slot for up to 32GB more.

If this information is accurate this would mark one of the first handsets to be launched in the US that uses the Exynos alongside LTE. The company has already stated that LTE compatible chips were being tested, and this could mean that it’s right on schedule.

Hopefully Exynos becomes the norm for other LTE carriers but it has to be remembered nothing has yet been confirmed about Sprint offering the handset anytime soon. Do you plan to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note 2?

    1. I am right there with you Raul! I have been w/Sprint for over 15yrs. (Pretty happy except for the lack of 3G/4G/celluar connectivity with my HTC 4G EVO in the San Antonio TX area. I am not certain if it’s the model phone or the service, either way its been money down the tube for the data plan); I am willing to go with the Samsung Galaxy Note2 for the 14 day trial period and asses the perfomance. If it continues to be poor, I am moving my 3 lines over to another carrier and get the GN2 there. Let’s hope it comes to Sprint real soon!!

      Agreed. My contract ends with Sprint the beginning of next month. I’ll be switching to from my 7 year relationship with them to get the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

    I cant wait to get this phone, I will def. leave Spring if they don’t carry it and t-mobile does! Their weak 4G already has them on the rocks! This phone is exactly what I have been waiting for!

      I can’t help but laugh. I applaud Sprint for getting the Galaxy Note 2 it’s about time. But let’s not get it twisted folks this device was made first for Tmobile and At&t the original carriers of the Galaxy Note. If it wasn’t for Samsung launching the Galaxy S3 on all carriers this past summer Sprint wouldn’t be seeing this chance today. Tmobile and it’s GSM HSPA PLUS 42MPS network simply blows Sprint out the water. We won’t even discuss the unlimited data plan on Tmobile. All three carriers Tmobile, At&t, and Sprint will carry the Galaxy Note 2 thank God.

    Don’t you love it that you have been a Sprint customer for 15+ years, etc. Me for 27 years, not all mobile. You only get surveyed if you say you are happy. You walk into a Sprint store and find that you, after years of service, will get no more discount for a phone than someone off the street. But I heard Sprint is only trying to mass more customers than the others. Don’t get me wrong, I do love Sprint, but I don’t think they care since they have already won me over.
