A day shy of its CES press conference, Samsung has unofficially confirmed that the company’s Galaxy Note will be heading to AT&T, thanks to several posters in the public area of the Las Vegas Convention Center displaying the news.
While the banner lacks an actual device photo, showcasing a Photoshopped image of the Galaxy Note without a 4G LTE indicator, the image does highlight the AT&T branding across the top of the device. Though neither AT&T nor Samsung have officially announced the Galaxy Note hitting the United States as of yet, the 5.3-inch device is likely to be the star of Sammy’s press conference tomorrow. In December the Note was spotted passing through the FCC database, sporting support for the 850MHz and 1900MHz frequencies, which are the same that AT&T supports.
The Galaxy Note originally drew some controversy when it first debuted due to its size. Straddling the line between smartphone and tablet with its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED 1280 x 800 display, the Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 Gingbread and packs a dual-core processor. The device can be used to make phone calls and supports a proprietary active stylus dubbed the S Pen. Despite its awkward size, the Galaxy Note earned praises for its excellent performance and exceptional display in our full review.
With Samsung boasting of 1 million units sold, the Galaxy Note could become even more popular after a Stateside release. Be sure to check back for our coverage of the Samsung press conference at CES tomorrow.
