More than a week ago, we found out that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a high chance of appearing on T-Mobile, coming under the guise of the Samsung SGH-T889. Well, fast forward to today, and it has been confirmed that T-Mobile will be on the receiving end of the Galaxy Note, where it will sport similar specifications underneath the hood as that of the international variant, while running on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network to boot. You will not need to wait for an operating system update, either, as the Galaxy Note 2 will have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed right out of the box.
Word has it that Samsung is hard at work in testing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the T-Mobile version, compiling test builds once every four to five days, while distributing them to their device testers via OTA. At this point in time, the T889UVALIC Firmware is being tested, freshly compiled on September 15th. All seems to run hunky dory as at press time, and we do hope to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 arrive on T-Mobile sooner rather than later lest it loses the “wow” factor in the highly competitive smartphone market.
