Samsung Galaxy Note LTE Headed For AT&T Next Year

If you’re the type of person who looks at a Galaxy Nexus and wonders why it couldn’t be even bigger, then Samsung just might have a treat meant for you. According to PocketNow, Samsung will be bringing an LTE-capable version of Samsung’s Galaxy Note to AT&T early next year.

The Note, if you haven’t seen it before, is bound to strain a few pockets with its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display. As you may be able to tell by the name, the Note’s big screen makes it a solid choice for avid note jotters, as does the included “S Pen” stylus.

Because AT&T will be getting the recently announced LTE variant, PocketNow mentions that the U.S. model will sport a Qualcomm SoC instead, specifically the dual-core 1.5GHz MSM8660 chipset. On paper, it looks like the Qualcomm chipset is just a hair faster than the 1.4GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor as seen in the standard Galaxy Note, but we’ll see if there’s any noticeable difference (hint: there probably won’t be).

From what we’ve seen in the past, the Note will probably ship with Gingerbread installed, unless Samsung manages to finish up their work on their Ice Sandwich update before they push this thing onto store shelves. Either way, prepare to play with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI all over again.
