Samsung Galaxy Note with AT&T LTE Bands Makes FCC Appearance

AT&T formally revealed plans to bring Samsung’s Galaxy Note to its new LTE network during a CES event earlier this month. We had already been tipped-off to the carrier’s interest in the Note, and were hoping that the event would afford us the opportunity to learn a little more about its release plans, including just when the phone might arrive. All we got, though, was word that AT&T would start selling the Note in a matter of weeks. We’re still hoping to learn about a precise launch date, but in the interim, we’re keeping our eyes open for additional signs of the Note’s launch. This afternoon, the FCC published some Samsung documents that reveal the Note receiving its certification.

The Note will be hitting AT&T as model SGH-i717. These docs show exactly what we’d expect for the Android’s radio, including both voice and HSPA+ support on AT&T’s main 850MHz and 1900MHz bands, as well as LTE on both the 700MHz band 17 and the 1700MHz AWS band. With certification out of the way, there’s nothing keeping AT&T from releasing its version of the Note whenever it pleases.

We’ve yet to see any FCC docs which lend credence to the theory that we’ll see the phone come to either Verizon or Sprint, but we remain on the lookout for any new Note hardware that shows up at the FCC with some CDMA and EV-DO under its hood.
