The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
has passed through the FCC
for testing yet again, this time for certifications related to LTE connectivity. The tested tablet is reportedly a version that will operate on AT&T's 4G LTE network, with the new radio replacing the 3G version seen by the Commission in March
, suggesting it could go on sale in the next few months.
It is said by Engadget
that the Note 8.0 carried a radio that connects at 850 and 1900MHz over GSM, and also has support for LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, and 17, something which matches AT&T's network pretty closely. It will also be the first release of the Galaxy Note 8.0 in the United States that has cellular access, following on from the earlier release of a version with just Wi-Fi
The Note 8.0, as seen by Electronista
