AT&T Galaxy Note Featuring 4G LTE Coming Soon; to Sport Differences

December 16, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Samsung Galaxy Note is all set to roll out on to the AT&T lineup early next year. The phone will bear the title SGH 1717, where as its earlier international version is called GT-N7000.

The grapevine has it that the SGH 1717, like its international version, will show up with a 5.3 inch screen highlighting a 1280 X 800 resolution. But there are deviations with respect to some of the features.

The SGH 1717 would stand out well above the GT-N7000, owing to the fact that it would be 4G LTE enabled, a feature that is present in most of the high-end phones available in the market today.

Another remarkable difference is that it will be powered by a Qualcomm chipset upon which a dual core 1.5 GHz MSM 8660 processor is placed, both work in tandem to bring out the best from the core of the device.

The Qualcomm chipset is widely accepted as an LTE friendly product. That might be the reason why Samsung has forsaken its own Exynos chip, for its rival’s silicon for the SGH 1717.

As you know, Samsung devices have been brilliant on the LTE networks, especially the Galaxy S II variants.

Samsung is now expected to bring in a different interface, with four buttons in order to overcome the possible legal challenge from other companies, like Apple. The official announcement for the device is expected to come probably next month, when the curtains go up on CES.
