Note successor sports LTE
The T-Mobile version of Samsung's Galaxy Note II has received FCC approval. According to the FCC's documents, the new Note will feature compatibility with a number of different wireless frequencies, and it will be LTE compatible, particularly with T-Mobile's forthcoming LTE network. That network is set to debut in 2013, and the new Note will be one of the first devices to take advantage of T-Mobile's LTE capability.
The Note II will be able to support the following frequencies: 850/1900 GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 850/1700/1900 WCDMA/HSPA, Band 4 (5, 10, 15, 20 MHz), 17 LTE (5, 10 MHz). The 700MHz connectivity will support LTE roaming, and the 1700MHz band will be for T-Mobile's forthcoming network.
The Note II is set to launch in late October, and Samsung expects it to sell better than its predecessor. The South Korean manufacturer has already begun sending out invites for a media event launching the new device. [via TMoNews]
