AT&T poised to carry modified Samsung Galaxy Note in early 2012?

The gigantic Samsung Galaxy Note may find itself arriving in the United States in early 2012 rocking support for AT&T’s LTE network.  The handset, which features a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera, and 2,500mAh battery, looks to be getting a bit of a hardware makeover as it braces for touchdown on U.S. soil.  Rather than using Samsung’s own Exynos chip (1.4GHz dual-core), it is expected that the AT&T model will utilize Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8660 processor instead.  The reason?  So the phone can support the 4G LTE network.

As much as we would love to see Android 4.0 under the hood, we’ll likely get Android 2.3 Gingerbread with promises of Ice Cream Sandwich compatibility.  CES is but a few weeks away so it stands to reason that Samsung could take to stage in Las Vegas to announce the handset.
