Earlier this week, press images of the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note were seen suggesting a July 11 release date. A leaked internal training sheet for T-Mobile showed features that include a dual core 1.5 GHz processor, 8 GB camera, front camera and HSPA+ capabilities. The leak did not show what speed of HSPA+.
The Note fills the void between tablet and phone. It's a bit too large to fit into a pocket but very using for web browsing and ready. A major feature is the ability use the S Pen for handwriting recognition.
People are wondering what the next Samsung Galaxy Note will be like. It apparently will be more like the Samsung Galaxy S III than the previous model. It reportedly will have a 5.5" Super AMOLED touchscreen and a thinner body and an September release date to beat the iPhone to market. Other rumors suggest an 8MP camera, faster processor (dual or quad-core) and 2GB of RAM.
American Samsung Galaxy Note users are still waiting for the update to Android 4.0 ICS which should be coming soon. European Samsung Galaxy Note owners received updates in May. If a T-Mobile version is coming July, it would help AT&T to have their branded version to be updated.
AT&T has been slow to update their Samsung devices, previously. However this week Samsung Galaxy S II was updated to Android 4.0 via Kies software earlier this week. If AT&T follows updates in order of release dates, then the Samsung Galaxy Note maybe next.
More than 208 million phablets, like the Samsung Galaxy Note, will be shipped globally in 2015, predicted ABI Research.
