Anonymous Source Claims Samsung SCH-I605 Is Verizon’s Galaxy Note II, Also Claims Galaxy Note II Is Headed For U.S. Cellular


We know Samsung’s Galaxy Note II is headed to at least AT&T and Sprint, but now it looks like Verizon Wireless is all set to get in on the party too. Our friends at Brief Mobile got their hands on a screenshot that clearly highlights a Samsung device listed as model number SCH-I605, courtesy of their anonymous source. According to the source, this mysterious SCH-I605 smartphone will be Verizon’s variant of the Galaxy Note II and will feature a quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE service. In addition, the anonymous source claims Verizon’s version will be nearly identical to the international version, except the standard Verizon branding on the front and back of the device.

Brief Mobile doesn’t stop there as it also claims another major carrier will get the touted smartphone as well. It has confirmed that U.S. Cellular will get its own variant of the smartphone too for its ever-growing network as well. So all in all– the device is all but confirmed to launch on every major U.S. carrier. Of course, when the exact launch is for each carrier is anyone’s guess.

    Wow what a surprise if this is true. I didn’t see that coming. I pegged Tmobile and At&t even Sprint shocked me. But this is shocking I need to see this from Samsung twitter Page or Samsung’s Facebook Page to really believe this. No other sources are reporting this yet. Samsung confirmed Tmobile and At&t and Sprint NOT VERIZON YET.

      “I need to see this from Samsung twitter Page or Samsung’s Facebook Page to really believe this” It won’t be there you stupid moron because, as I said before, all of this is nothing more than unconfirmed rumor. Samsung hasn’t even come out and stated the Note 2 will be supported on X carrier. You apparently have a hard time differentiating rumor from truth.
      And FYI, Phandroid (the website you’re banned from), and Android Police had this same tidbit of info at about the same time (if not earlier).
