The smartphone is rumored for a July 11th launch at the carrier
Samsung Galaxy Note, the largest Android-based smartphone available on shelves today, is expected to make an appearance on T-Mobile’s network in the not too distant future.The handset has been rumored before to be en-route to the wireless carrier’s offering, yet no confirmation on the matter has emerged until now.
Today, however, we learn that the phone has been spotted on the FCC website, and that it was approved for use on T-Mobile’s network.
Apparently, this is the same Samsung device featuring model number SGH-T879 that leaked a while ago for T-Mobile, and it might soon see an official unveiling at the operator.
The listing over at the Federal Communication Commission shows that SGH-T879 will arrive with support for voice and 2G data connectivity on the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands, and that it will also support 3G on 1700MHz.
As Pocketnow notes, the handset is also listed with support for 3G on 1900MHz, the frequency that T-Mobile has started to use in some areas around the country only recently.
Additionally, the documents show that Magenta’s Galaxy Note will arrive on shelves with support for 3G on 850MHz, as well as with NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities packed inside.
Some of the previous rumors on the handset’s landing suggested that it could reach carrier’s network on July 11th, but no other details on the matter have emerged.
However, it appears that the phone might be launched in a Navy Blue flavor, if we were to believe a leaked inventory sheet that made it online over at TmoNews.
The wireless carrier is said to be gearing up to deliver a Galaxy Note Navy Blue Demo set to its stores, most probably in preparation of the aforementioned July 11th launch.
With no official confirmation on any of these, we’ll have to take the info with a grain of salt, but we’ll keep an eye out for more details on the matter, so stay tuned.
