T-Mobile Galaxy Note edges closers to official status

Leaked pics reveal carrier branding

There have been plenty leaks lately indicating that the Galaxy Note would be heading to T-Mobile and now images have hit the web picturing the device with the carrier's branding. Short of an official announcement it seems like a sure thing that Samsung's huge handset is T-Mobile bound though exactly when it's going to happen and what the phone will cost when it does is still a mystery.

While some of the recent leaks were worth taking with a pinch of salt the branding and the wealth of T-Mobile apps that are present on the device in the picture should be enough evidence that the Note pictured is the real deal. In addition to the details the exterior reveals the images, which first surfaced on T-Mo News, show that it's going to come with the same 2500mAh battery and Wi-Fi calling pre-installed.


It's hardly surprising that T-Mobile wants to get in on the action as well with the Galaxy Note proving itself to be an unexpected hit. First appearing in November last year it seemed doomed to tablet/smartphone limbo but at the last count Samsung had moved 5 million units in the first five months it had been on sale. This year has already seen LG take a leaf out of Samsung's book with its Optimus Vu device but has failed to create the same amount of buzz.

Aside from the 5.3" display the handset offers a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage as well as S-Pen integration. If T-Mobile waits too long it may end up getting overshadowed by the Galaxy SIII but is still an impressive piece of hardware.

The timing doesn't seem unusual as AT&T's Galaxy Note exclusivity ends this month but as of yet there isn't any indication that carriers other than T-Mobile are going to be picking it up.
