Although the U.S. is a little late to the Galaxy Note party, we do know the big and proud device is headed stateside for lucky AT&T customers. For those not satisfied with 4.3-inch, or even 4.6-inch screens, your hunger for super-large is about to be satiated. But wait, could there already be hints at the Note’s successor? According to a new WiFi Alliance certification, the next iteration may be in the pipeline. Allow me to explain.
The Note currently pegged to hit North America’s AT&T network is known as the GT-N7000. The recently certified (January 10 recent) Samsung product is carrying the GT-N8000 name. Interesting, no? The original Galaxy S was referred to as the i9000 in the codename backroads, while its successor, the Galaxy S II, was bumped up to i9100. Are you seeing the pattern? Of course, the unknown GT-N8000 could be any number of devices but, for now, a Galaxy Note successor seems the most plausible.
Hang tight during these next few weeks as this one makes its way through the different channels. More news is bound to pop up by then. For now, check out our Galaxy Note 4G LTE for AT&T hands-on at this year’s CES.
