Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been launched for quite a while now, and even though its release date still has some time left, the latest addition to the Galaxy series is already counted among those smartphones which have suffered most rumors and this time is no different.
According to a report from BriefMobile, a “reputable source” has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would be coming to Verizon and as a proof for his claim, he provided a screenshot of the Verizon Note 2.
So if the screenshot is really what it claims to be, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be coming with the model number SCH-I605. The “reputable source” also claims that the Verizon variant of the Galaxy Note 2 would almost identical to the international version of the device in terms of tech specs(the quad core processor+ 4G LTE) and design but will have Verizon branding all over it.
The report goes on to say that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would be a multi-carrier release and would come in all the major US carriers. The list of carriers on which the device would be made available, currently include, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Bell, and Sprint, it is possible that in the near future some other carriers might also make their way in the list.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 price in US, the report fails to give any clue about that but just so that you might have a fair idea about the Note 2′s price, the original Galaxy Note came with a $330 price tag under T-Mobile branding.
If you are a follower of the Note series, then you might remember that the original Samsung Galaxy Note was only released with AT&T branding on it, the official reason why it wasn’t included in the other carriers was never revealed, but rumor has it that the carriers were afraid that a big smartphone like the Galaxy Note would fail in the market and will never be a good device commercially(which we all know has been proved horribly wrong).
Currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has an equal weightage for Samsung as the S3, and Sammy doesn’t really want to leave any penny it could earn by selling both of these flagship devices, specially when the Korean company owes Apple more than a billion dollars.
