The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 has arrived on Verizon. It’s priced at an enormous $849 outright, or $749 for a two-year contract. Considering its big price tag, it might just make sense to buy the device outright without a contract. Still, Verizon has made the LTE-capable device an option.

The NotePRO 12.2 is powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU with 3GB of RAM, and packs a 12.2-inch display with a 2560×1600 resolution. Other specs include 32GB storage, microSD, S-Pen support, a 2MP front camera, 8MP rear camera and a 9500 mAh battery. The device is available straight from Verizon’s website, via the source link below.

Shortly after leaking the AT&T model of HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, @evleaks posted Verizon’s. And this time around, the device is in gray. Verizon opted to put its logo on the back of the device like AT&T; however, Big Red also threw in its 4G LTE logo. Also, Verizon’s 4G LTE icon is present in the status bar.
