US FCC clears Samsung Galaxy Note 2 without LTE bands

The smartphone is scheduled to be released in October this year

By CBR Staff Writer

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of US has cleared Samsung Galaxy Note 2 without LTE bands.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 spotted over at the FCC carries the model number GT-N7105 and is likely the international version scheduled to be released in Europe and Asia in October this year.

The Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display and a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 processor.

The approval was for GSM/GPRS/EDGE bands 850 and 1900, which correspond to AT&T’s service in the US.

The GT-N7105 lacks US compatible LTE bands, but will come with support for other 4G networks including UK’s newly launched EE.

The rest of the connectivity options include GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850 and 1900 MHz and 850 WCDMA/HSPA radios.

In July 2012, Samsung Electronics had launched the QWERTY smartphone GALAXY Chat, adding to the company’s range of Galaxy phones, designed especially for socially-active users.

In the fourth quarter of 2012, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S III will most likely be the first to receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, followed by the S II, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi tablet and other devices.

Samsung has been in a brutal war with arch-rival Apple and both firms have been suing and countersuing across the world.
