Samsung announced last month that the Galaxy Note II will be heading to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular. Since Samsung’s initial announcement consumers have been left in the dark, until recently.
Sprint was the first to break the silence earlier this month, and T-Mobile is reportedly going to follow suit very soon. Today, AT&T joins the other two carriers, announcing that the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available for purchase starting Nov. 9, with pre-orders beginning on Oct. 25.
It will sport an impressive 5.5-inch AMOLED display, along with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera. The Galaxy Note II will offer a 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM and will run on the newest version of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
This version of the phablet will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, though 4G is not available in all locations.
Starting Nov. 9 the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available for purchase from AT&T retailers and online for $300 with a two year contract. Additionally consumers will be able to pre-order the new handset starting on Oct 25 at AT&T.com.
AT&T is matching both Sprint’s and T-Mobile’s price. However, both carriers will beat AT&T to the market, with T-Mobile set to release the Galaxy Note II this Thursday, and Sprint set to the release the device this Friday, the same day AT&T will offer pre-orders for the handset.
While AT&T might not be able to offer the Galaxy Note II before its competitors, it is currently the only carrier offering the original Galaxy Note for $200 with a two year contract.
