Newly-uncovered files on Sprint's servers suggest that a highly-specced Samsung device — possibly a Galaxy Note 2 variant — could be headed to the network in the future. RDF files on devices.sprintpcs.com unearthed by XDA forum members, reveal a Samsung 'SPH-L900' device with a laundry list of impressive specs –
- Exynos 4412 CPU
- Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of storage
- CDMA/EVDO/LTE connectivity
- 8MP rear camera
- 1.9MP front camera
With the exception of the radios, that's an exact match for the device we saw last week in Germany — though the key specification that's not confirmed is screen size. News of a 5.5-inch screen would certainly seal the deal, but as it stads this could just be a spec-bumped Galaxy S3-class phone. Whatever it is, it's currently running software version L900VPLI2, which based on the way Samsung numbers its builds, indicates a ROM built sometime in the past week.
Sprint didn't carry the original Samsung Galaxy Note, which in the U.S. was exclusive to AT&T until it landed on Tmo in early August. Samsung made a concerted effort to bring the Galaxy S3 to as many U.S. carriers as possible, and it's likely they'll want to do the same with their next big device. Rumors have already suggested the Note 2 could be headed to T-Mobile, and an AT&T launch is likely too, given the success of the original Note.
