Samsung revealed the Galaxy Note 2 on August 29 but still left out some important details regarding the device such as pricing, a U.S. release date, and carrier information. Leaks and reports, however, seem to indicate that the Galaxy Note 2 could be launching more networks than previously thought.

While an AT&T launch was certain, it seems that carriers Sprint and T-Mobile might be offering the handset by the end of 2012.
It seems that someone over at XDA-Developers found some Samsung RDF files for a device called the "Samsung SPH-L900" that could indicate a Sprint Galaxy Note 2. RDF files reveal the specs of a device, and the revealed specs of the SPH-L900 are exactly the same as the Galaxy Note 2 specs listed on Samsung's official website.
The supposed Sprint device will have an Exynos 4412 processor, a 1280X720 display, 16GB of memory, an 8-megapixel camera, and will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
An earlier leak also indicated that there could be a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 in the works.
This would mean more major national U.S. carriers could be offering the Galaxy Note 2 this fall than previously thought. Verizon seems to be the only carrier now that hasn't offered any clues about whether it would pursue the Galaxy Note 2.
The Galaxy Note 2's main features include its large, 5.5-inch display and the S Pen stylus. The new stylus is an improved design over the original Galaxy Note's S Pen, and will work in conjunction with S Pen specific apps designed for the Galaxy Note 2.
The Galaxy Note 2 will launch in mid-October to European and Asian markets. Samsung has stated that the handset will be available in the United States by the end of 2012.
