T-Mobile Galaxy Note Cruises Through FCC, Rumored for July 11 Release Date
If you are a T-Mobile customer and have patiently waited for news about a possible Samsung Galaxy Note arrival, we’ve got a little something for you to mull over. It looks like FCC certs have leaked for a device called the Samsung SGH-T879, which has been rumored for some time now to be the codename for the T-Mobile variant of the G-Note.
As per the leaked documents, Magenta’s Galaxy Note will come with 2G data coverage on 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands, as well as 3G support on 850/1700/1900 MHz. Also, it looks like there will be an NFC antenna on the battery cover, but there’s word yet as to whether or not the feature will actually be usable or not. AT&T locked down NFC on their version, so we’re hoping that T-Mobile doesn’t follow suit.
Apparently, there is a bit of confusion regarding the phone’s dimensions, though. According to PocketNow, there is one slightly odd bit to these documents: while the width of the Note as measured above appears to be correct, the Note should be quite a bit taller, measuring closer to 147 millimeters. Of course, this could be an error of some sort, or it could mean a totally different device altogether. Considering we haven’t heard of any other phones as wide as the Note, we’ll just keep our fingers crossed that it’s an honest mistake.
You may remember, last month we told you about a leaked T-Mo device roadmap that showed July 11th as the release date for the Galaxy Note. While, we haven’t heard anything else since then, this latest news definitely seems to bring some legitimacy to that, wouldn’t you think?
At any rate, I guess we’re just going to have to wait and watch with the rest of the world. Until then, my friends. Stay Classy.
