Cheer up Sammy fans! The Samsung Galaxy Note will reach your hands in a short while from now.

You might remember the smartphone-tablet hybrid device was introduced at the IFA Berlin in September. At the time of unveiling, the device had surprised everyone with its impressive specs.

The latest we get to hear is that the Note, codenamed GT-I9220, has passed through FCC gates.

Interestingly, the Android 2.3 handset was found compatible with AT&T’s 4G network hinting that it might be seen on the carrier’s network.

In case you have forgotten, here are some of the amazing features of the Galaxy Note. The smartphone boasts a large 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 800 resolutions, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage expandable up to 32 GB through micro SD card slots.

It comes integrated with dual cameras (an 8-megapixel rear shooter with LED flash and 1080p full HD video recording and a 2-megapixel front snapper for video calls) that come with different modes like Action Shot, Beauty, Panorama Shot and Smile Shot.

Another notable feature is the stylus – Spen – that allows multi-touch input. A 2,500 mAh Lithium-ion battery backs the 178g device that measures 146.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm.

On the connectivity front, it supports HSPA+, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct and much more.

The Galaxy Note is expected to be released in the US and Europe by 2012. But chances of seeing the device in Canada this year itself are more.
