Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date and pricing announced by Sprint

Sprint seems to have gotten a jump on the Samsung press event scheduled for October 24. The carrier has offered up the official release date and pricing information for the LTE compatible Galaxy Note 2. And better news for those waiting, your wait will be fairly short.
October 16, 2012

We are expecting the Galaxy Note 2 to come available with a wide variety of U.S. based carriers. And well, it looks like one of those carriers has come forward with a release date and price. This of course, comes ahead of the Samsung press event that will take place on October 24. That aside though, the carrier is Sprint and the release date is coming later this month.

Sprint will have the Galaxy Note 2 available on October 25 and the handset will set you back $299.99 on a two-year agreement. We suspect that price may be a bit higher than some were hoping for. And it may also give a clue as to what we will see when the pricing is officially confirmed by others such as T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.

Otherwise, Sprint will have the Galaxy Note 2 available in two colors — Marble White and Titanium Gray. The features are what many have already seen before, but just to give a recap — they begin with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, 4G LTE connectivity, a 5.5-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display and the S Pen. Some other goodies will include a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor as well as a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. The camera will also have a few features that were first introduced back in June with the Galaxy S3 and include Buddy Photo Share, Burst Shot and Best Photo.

Now that Sprint has made this official, we are curious to see how well the Galaxy Note 2 is received. Anyone considering one of these, with Sprint, or even with another carrier?
