Could The Jelly-Bean-Running Samsung SGH-I317 Be AT&T’s Note 2?


It looks like Samsung has a new Android getting ready for AT&T, at least according to some recently-uncovered benchmark data; just what could model SGH-i317 be?

The phone was first noticed on GLBenchmark, where it reveals a 1280 x 720 resolution, the fact that it should be coming to AT&T someday, and a clock speed of 1.6GHz.

That info alone makes the i317 sound a lot like the Galaxy Note 2; it’s going with a 720p display instead of the original’s 1280 x 800 component, and the Exynos 4 Quad runs at 1.6GHz. Jelly Beans’s also consistent with how the phone will arrive. The only problem there is the model number itself. The first Note, as it came to AT&T in the States, was the i717, so it would be a bit unusual to see a follow-up numbered so differently. The “17” part is consistent, though, so maybe that shouldn’t be dismissed altogether.

We sourced-out the User Agent Profile for the i317, but it doesn’t add any new info that’s not already on GLBenchmark.

What do you think; is this really the Note 2, and the model numbers business is just a red herring, or could this be something else entirely?
