With all the new smartphones supporting 4G LTE, U.K. consumers must have felt a little left out of the loop. There is good news, however. EE, the parent company of the Orange and T-Mobile joint venture, will be rolling out 4G LTE across 10 cities on October 30, and has announced that it will offer the Galaxy Note 2 starting on October 15.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 supports 4G LTE, which in theory should allow for speeds of up to 50Mbps. Of course, we'll see how that turns out when millions are accessing the network.
EE has dropped 1.5 billion in an effort to bring a 4G LTE network to the United Kingdom.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a great handset to take advantage of this network. With its powerful specs, it should deliver a noticeable improvement to U.K. consumers over existing networks.
With a massive 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Note 2 falls somewhere in between a phone and a tablet. This phablet also boasts an impressive 1.6GHz quad-core processor that will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The Galaxy Note 2 has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. The Galaxy Note 2 will ship with the S Pen stylus, which allows for previewing and multitasking. Samsung hopes the stylus will turn the Galaxy Note 2 into a digital notepad.
EE is also offering the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, the HTC One XL, and the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE. Nokia's Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 should also hit the network in the future.
