Samsung’s hybrid 5″ phone/tablet is getting closer to a US launch. Carrying model number SGH-I171, a Super AMOLED 1280×800 screen and packing a Snapdragon processor instead of the Exynos in the International version. It will be packing a 4G LTE radio and is expected to hit AT&T in early 2012.
The processor will be the Qualcomm 1.5GHz MSM8660, which apparently handles the HSPA+ 3G networks in the US better than it’s Exynos equivalent. The Note is expected to be revealed at CES in January.
