T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Note might finally become a reality here soon sometime this summer. We’ve seen a few leaks suggest it was coming, and even spotted it in the wild running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but now it has cleared the FCC and should hopefully be on the way to Magenta store shelves.

There were a few reports that the 5.3-inch Note would arrive on Verizon as the Galaxy Journal but that is looking pretty doubtful about now. Apparently T-Mobile will be offering it at some point though and according to PocketNow it has just cleared the FCC. We’ve heard it could land as soon as July 11th, and that sounds about right given that it has now cleared the FCC.

Other details have also been revealed as of late that T-Mobile stores have already started receiving promotional material as well as actual T-Mobile Galaxy Note demo and dummy units according to leaks by TmoNews. Last week we reported on a possibly Galaxy Note 2 with a 5.5-inch screen in the pipes from Samsung, so T-Mobile better hurry if they plan to launch this thing in time for summer. We have a feeling they might wait until after the Galaxy S III launches on June 21st so they don’t steal any of its thunder with the Note, but we’ll have to wait and see. Would you take the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note over the flagship Galaxy S III on T-Mobile?
