Samsung just announced they would be launching their Galaxy Note II in the US by mid-November and we were surprised to learn that the device will include Samsung’s own 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. Previously, Samsung had used Qualcomm’s 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus for their US devices, but all the specs appear to be the same with the global and US versions of the Note II.
The Galaxy Note II will launch on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and US Cellular. No exact pricing or availability was revealed by Samsung, who said we should expect the carriers to announce that information at a later date. We imagine that the carriers will be eager to tell us more after the iPhone 5 goes on sale this week.
We know a lot of you love large displays, so let us know if you plan on picking up the Galaxy Note II when it comes out.
