Samsung Galaxy Note II for T-Mobile receives software update which brings LTE support

T-Mobile is releasing an update for their Samsung Galaxy Note II which will bring Android 4.1.2 and the T889UVBMB4 software version. The update will introduce LTE compatibility for the device along with other improvements and enhancements from the latest version of .

You can download the update to your device over the air (OTA) once you receive the notification or by connecting your handset to your computer through the Samsung Kies software.

Keep in mind that while the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be LTE compatible after the update, T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is still not widely available. The carrier has promised to add LTE coverage to Las Vegas and Kansas City before the end of this month. By the middle of the year T-Mobile’s 4G LTE service promises to reach 100 million people with the number doubling to 200 million before the end of the year.

The BlackBerry Z10 will also join the T-Mobile network this year as a 4G LTE device and the company will definitely work on improving its LTE device portfolio over the course of this year. One advantage that T-Mobile customer’s will have over competing networks is that they can fall back on the carrier’s fast HSPA+ network where LTE is not available while carrier’s like Verizon only have 3G to fall back on.

Additionally T-Mobile will also benefit from the $1 billion worth of spectrum that AT&T had to turn over after its failed attempt at purchasing the carrier along with the spectrum they will gain from their merger with MetroPCS once the process is completed.
