British carrier EE has announced that the new Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE will be joining its initial crop of 4G-capable smartphones from Monday, October 15.
The super-sized “phablet” will join a small but rapidly expanding 4G lineup that currently includes the iPhone 5, the Galaxy S III, the HTC One XL, and the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE — all of which will be available from today, October 3, in the United Kingdom. However, if you’re picking one of these devices up today, don’t expect a super speedy data connection right away.
You see, while all of these handsets are compatible with EE’s 1800MHz 4G network, the service still hasn’t actually gone live yet — and EE is yet to confirm exactly when that will happen. But at least you can be sure that when it does, you’ll be one of the first to take advantage of it.
The Galaxy Note II boasts a massive 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280 x 720 resolution, a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, and 2GB of RAM. It also features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video, and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. It comes with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed.
