Better be on Verizon or I'm jumping ship for my wife.

"O" face

Zefal151 says:

I think i need to clean my pants

He123321 says:

If Sprint does not get the GNote2, I will jump ship.

hmmm says:

That's a big damn phablet. Not my cup of tea but I am glad Android gives users a choice.

And please tell me that is a super amoled + not just a super amoled 5.5" screen.

Wicell says:

It's an HD samoled.... trust me, if it's anything like the gs3 screen (should be better), it won't make a difference.

Floss82 says:

The new sexy! I really hope T-Mobile gets this:)

PWC Realtor says:

I was going to say the same thing until I saw that it's only HSPA+ 21. What's up with that?

Techjourney says:

Verizon... please make it happen!

SamOliver says:

Will the US version have the same quad core exynos processor?

moosc says:

Yuck pentile less resolution then note1 no flexable screen

hmmm says:

Yeah, lower res and a larger screen. Double whammy of no no right there.

cellphonejie says:

Read about halfway through the article. The screen is no longer pentile :)

Habiib says:

"The display resolution is the same as very similar to the original Note, 1280 x 720 versus 1280 x 800 on the older model, and the technology employed is still Super AMOLED, though the Pentile subpixel arrangement has been tweaked a little. It's still not a perfect stripe of RGB pixels as you might get on LG's IPS displays or the laudable HTC One X, but it's somewhere closer to it than the standard Pentile. An improvement, in any case."

"..though the Pentile subpixel arrangement has been tweaked a little."

Not that it's a big deal, but I read the link and didn't see anywhere that says its non-Pentile. So how is a tweaked Pentile screen no longer pentile? or am I reading it wrong?

venom845pd says:

Verizon i will b ur forever customer if u get this!!!!!

bobbiac says:

Probably not going to happen for some time

Shut Up and Take My Money!

MarkMcCoskey says:

Real nice. Strange that its only HSPA+ 21.
I have an Evo V on the way. WiMax with a $40 plan works for me.
Would sure love a large screen for my 50+ eyes, though.

startac7868 says:

What are compelling upgrades from Note 1?

Aside from new software which one may be able to install on the original Note, I don't really see anything terribly compelling in terms of hardware. Yes, faster processor, more memory, etc. which are expected evolutionary increments. But nothing in the way of a radical new display. OTOH, if you need LTE, then this would be a no-brainer.

Shadowriver says:

Better S-Pan, which detects pointing before touching the screen. What else they would need to add?

Wicell says:

My thoughts exactly, LTE is the only new hook and I don't see this spreading to CDMA carriers anytime soon, of ever. It's like the At&t galaxy s2 (G Note) vs At&t galaxy s2 skyrocket (g note 2).

Clif1999 says:

LTE is not new for the US version of the G Note. The original Galaxy Note on At&T is LTE. I have it.

grlla says:

If this is like the big red S3 - it will be dual vs. quad core. I love love love my S3. Can hardly wait for my next new toy - this beast.

Unbelievable how Samsung has delivered. A PC on your phone, a phone on your PC.

Have it your way w/bluetooth earbud. BAZINGA !

popologuy says:

Samsung has declined to announce US carriers at this time. Specs will probably change.

darrenf says:

No mention of palm rejection, pogo pins or inductive charging? I also wonder if the resolution decrease and size increase will bring forth more complaints about pentile since the ppi will be lower.

Who am I kidding -- I'll still buy it. :-)

piizzadude says:

not coming to Verizon, book it

DroidATX says:

NFC? Oh I see it!

vinny jr says:

Must have this beast now.

popologuy says:

Endgaget interviews some guy from Samsung whosays the screen is a HD Super AMOLED PLUS display.

ayg says:

Where are the supported bands? So much AWS speculation.. I just want to pickup a international one and use it on my T-Mo prepaid.

Clif1999 says:

As an owner of the original Galaxy Note on At&T I hope AT&T doesn't disable the FM radio like they did on the original Galaxy Note. Also, if they have added a notification LED that would make it perfect.

cgardnervt says:

I love the specs! But its far to big for my taste! I will stick with my S3 for now!

NR017 says:

AT&T somehow has it's name written all over this phone already and I hope it stays with AT&T. Once this is out in the US market, I'm pre-ordering like I did with my first GNote.
