Samsung Is Holding An Event On October 24th In New York, US Note II Availability Announcements Imminent?

We already know the Galaxy Note II is headed to all of America's "big four" carriers with Exynos and LTE (well, LTE on 3 out of 4) in tow. What we don't know is when. Samsung promised "before the holidays," but that's a pretty large window. It seems likely that window is about to close - next month.

Samsung has announced an event to be held on October 24th in NYC, and the invitation makes it quite obvious what the topic of discussion will be.

Galaxy Note II With Quad-Core Exynos And LTE Coming To Top Five US Carriers In Time For The Holidays

We knew it was happening, but now things are official. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is coming to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. This is going to be a big deal, and not just because this phone is physically massive.

[Rumor] Surprise! The Bootloader Is Reportedly Locked On Verizon's Galaxy Note II

We already know that the Big Four will be getting their own respective renditions of the Galaxy Note II. We also expect that it'll also be part of a unified release much like the Galaxy S III. We've even seen how Verizon defiled its home button. Turns out leaving its mark on the face of the device wasn't enough for Big Red, though; the carrier has also done some work to the bootloader.

[Leak] First Images Of The Verizon Galaxy Note II Show Up Online, And It Has Branded Home Button

We already know that the Galaxy Note II will be making its way to Big Red eventually, and we assumed it would look identical to the international version. And it basically does, according to some leaked images that showed up today. Only, it has Verizon branding in places that no phone should ever have carrier branding of any kind: on the home button. I really hope this is a test design.

Initial Impressions Of The (International) Samsung Galaxy Note II

So, the other day, in New York, Samsung gathered up a bunch of bloggers and showed us the international Galaxy Note 2. They wouldn't tell us anything about their North American plans, only that the international version would be pretty close to the NA version, and that they'd be sending out NA review units soon. So, while we're waiting for the real one to get here, we thought it'd be fun to take a quick look at the international version.

The Circle Is Complete: Galaxy Note II For Verizon Pops Up In Screenshot, Model SCH-I605

BriefMobile has received a screenshot this morning that would seem to confirm the existence of a Verizon-flavored Galaxy Note II, rounding out the phone's appearances on each of the US's "big four" carriers.

Last week, we saw the device leaked for T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. We had figured, at that point, that Verizon wouldn't be getting the device. Particularly because it's selling the LG Intuition, which is the Note II's one and only phablet (shudder) competitor here in the US.

Leaked Screenshots Reveal AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note II (SGH-I317)

Judging from a new leak released to BriefMobile by a "trusted source," it looks like the Galaxy Note II lineup is pretty much complete for US launch.

The source today provided BriefMobile with screenshots taken from an SGH-I317 unit (codenamed toIteatt) running on AT&T's 4G LTE network, and packing all the specs you'd expect from the original phablet's successor – Android 4.1.1. Jelly Bean, a 720x1280 resolution, and a quad-core 4412 Exynos processor.

Enterprising XDA Member Finds Hints That The Galaxy Note II May Be Coming To Sprint As SPH-L900

When the first Galaxy Note launched, everyone was reasonably skeptical. Was the world ready for such a large phone? Turns out, yep. So now, it would be expected for more carriers to want in on the action. Cue Sprint, stage left. One curious XDA member started poking around in some Sprint documents and found reference to one "SPH-L900." We know SPH is a designation Sprint uses for its Samsung phones (Galaxy Nexus is SPH-L700, Galaxy S III is SPH-L710, etc.), but the L900 is brand new.
