Samsung Galaxy Note tipped to hit AT&T next year with LTE connectivityAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Been dying to get your mitts all over the Samsung Galaxy Note and its 5.3-inch display ever since it debuted back in September? If you happen to be an AT&T customer, you may soon get your chance. A new report out of Pocketnow today alleges that a version of the Galaxy Note is due to hit AT&T with the model number SGH-I717 sometime early next year. The site claims that there are a couple of things — besides the loss of the home button — that'll differentiate the AT&T Galaxy Note from the international HSPA+ version, though: LTE connectivity and a Qualcomm-made 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8660 processor.
Samsung told us when it originally took the wraps off of the Galaxy Note that an LTE-enabled variant was in the pipeline, so it's not a total shock to hear about such a version, but it is good to hear that it may be coming to AT&T shelves. Precisely when that might happen remains a mystery, but it's believed that the AT&T GNote could be unveiled as soon as CES next month. Naturally, we'll let you know more when we do. Any of you think that an AT&T LTE-capable Galaxy Note might be right up your alley?
