Will Verizon Lock The Bootloader On the Samsung Galaxy Note II? Apparently Yes

Advertisement

If you have a deja-vu (and not a pleasant one at that) we won’t blame you. Verizon decided to lock the bootloader of its Galaxy S III and offer it like that, though they have a special “Developer Edition” phone up for sale of the same hardware which should satisfy the needs of power users (though it will most probably not).

The birds are chirping that, following the above model, Verizon will likely offer its variant of the Galaxy Note II with the bootloader locked down. We’ve recently seen pictures of the alleged phone-tablet hybrid and we had the pleasure of taking a look at the odd (to say the least) branding on the home button. The question now remains: will there be an unlocked “Developer Edition” Galaxy Note II (and if there will be one, at what cost and will customers care)?

Rumors also have it that all US carrier variants of the Galaxy Note II will look identical to the global one (give or take the purported branded home button) and the specifications will be unaltered.
