Samsung SGH-T879 leaked for T-Mobile, could be the Galaxy Note


It may not be the latest Samsung product in the news, but the Galaxy Note is still a pretty big deal. It has a gorgeous 5.3-inch HD display, fast 1.4GHz dual-core processor, will soon get Ice Cream Sandwich, and even has the S Pen for extra note taking features. As such, some new leaks which suggest that the Note may be coming to my personal carrier of choice, T-Mobile, are quite exciting.

The document above, found by TmoNews, has spurred such rumors, based on the fact that the above image list a mysterious device called the Samsung SGH-T879 with a screen resolution of 800 x 1280, setting it apart from tablets, which are listed as 1280 x 800. Not only is 800 x 1280 the exact resolution of the Galaxy Note, the SGH-T879 model number is closer to other versions of the Note such as AT&T's SGH-i717 than it is to Galaxy Tab model numbers, such as the Galaxy Tab 7.7/P-6810. This makes it more likely that the SGH-T879 is in fact a large smartphone, and not one of Samsung's many tablets. In addition to the above document, there is also a Bluetooth approval document which lists the SGH-T879 as a variant of the AT&T Note.

It is still quite possible that the SGH-T879 will turn out to be something else entirely, but so far all evidence seems to point to a Note-like smartphone/tablet hybrid device. Of course, the model number could technically be for anything from the "next Galaxy" to the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, but these seem like very unlikely options. Even if it isn't the Note, though, the SGH-T879 should still be an interesting device for T-Mobile, smartphone, tablet, or otherwise.
