The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the more interesting smartphones expected to launch shortly in the United States — and for good reason. It’s not your typical Android smartphone with a large screen, fast processor, and sweet camera. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy Note prides itself on being a hybrid between a tablet and smartphone featuring a 5.3 inch display.
At CES 2012, several posters (such as the one seen above) have been spotted to contain the Samsung Galaxy Note in all its glory. The image clearly shows an AT&T logo practically confirming at this point that AT&T will the lucky carrier to launch the iconic Galaxy Note. Unfortunately, we’re still waiting for the official announcement from Samsung or AT&T, but the announcement should be coming during CES. We’re expecting the Galaxy Note to cost somewhere between $199-$249 especially if it features 4G LTE.
At this point, the only doubt we have concerning the Galaxy Note is whether or not it will launch with Sprint as well. Despite the initial report claiming Sprint would launch the Galaxy Note, there hasn’t been any substantial chatter since. However, if Sprint were to launch the Galaxy Note, I’m sure the announcement would take place at CES.
Here’s a quick refresher on the Galaxy Note for our readers considering the smartphone when it launches on AT&T. It features Android 2.3, a dual-core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution, an 8MP rear facing camera, a 2MP front facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, and GPS. Lastly, an upgrade to Android Ice Cream Sandwich is confirmed for the Galaxy Note.
