Several readers (and many staffers) were excited to see the announcement of the 5.3″ Samsung Galaxy Note back in the beginning of September. Our dreams were crushed almost immediately, however, as TechCrunch reported the next day that the Galaxy Note was not making its way stateside.
It turns out we may have some hope of seeing this beastly device in the U.S. afterall, as the Galaxy Note has just passed through the FCC, complete with HSPA+ support for AT&T’s network. Though we have no additional information on the Galaxy Note release, we aren’t expecting to see this device until early 2012.
Specs for the Galaxy Note:
- 5.3″ Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 800 resolution
- 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos Processor
- 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p video
- 2 megapixel front-facing camera
- 2500 mAh battery for incredible battery life
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread (though with a 2012 release, perhaps we’ll see Ice Cream Sandwich launch on this device)
We’ll bring you more information on theU.S.release of the Galaxy Note as we learn more. Who else out there is excited for this
