Samsung Galaxy Note 2 To Launch on Everything Everywhere’s 4G LTE Network on October 15
The Galaxy Note 2 will become one of several devices offered by Everything Everywhere that support 4G LTE connectivity. Two other high-profile LTE phones in the United Kingdom, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Huawei Ascend P1 LTE, are also on the carrier’s lineup, and should be available as of this week.
However, Everything Everywhere didn’t disclose when 4G LTE would become available to subscribers. This could be an inconvenience to most would-be subscribers, as they would have to register first under Orange or T-Mobile, then switch to Everything Everywhere once the carrier launches its LTE network.
Pricing details are still unknown, although judging by price points such as $299 in the United States (through U.S. Cellular), the Galaxy Note 2 may be a bit more expensive than other contract phones in the UK.
Meanwhile, unlocked versions of the Galaxy Note 2 are currently being sold on online auction sites, primarily eBay. These phones may be a good way for consumers to be among the first to own a Galaxy Note 2 in their area, however, they are usually several hundreds of dollars more expensive than the device is expected to cost in retail stores.
The Galaxy Note 2 is now expected to be launched in the United States on October 24 and released shortly thereafter; some of the device’s key specs include a quad-core Exynos processor, a 5.5-inch HD display and a long-lasting 3,100 mAh battery.
