System Dump Appears for the Sprint Galaxy Note 2
With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looming closer and closer, it’s really hard not to get excited. It’s gigantic, it’s powerful, and it’s beautiful. And as with the Galaxy S III, Samsung is bringing the device to all of the US carriers. So Sprint and Verizon customers won’t have to look at AT&T and T-Mobile customers with envy this time around. Recently, we brought you news of the AT&T Note 2 system dump being leaked. Now, the Sprint version has a leak as well.
Posted to our forums by XDA Recognized Contributor sextape, the leak not only allows developers to get started early with the development, but also some specs on the device in case you have problems finding them elsewhere. An RDF found at the Sprint site suggests that the Sprint version will carry the quad-core Exynos4412 that powers the international version.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
