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.
Additionally, sextape has shared links for a CWM recovery along with the stock recovery. This should help jump start development on the Note 2. It could also lead to more Note 2 applications being ported to other devices. For more details, check out the original thread.

Android M has answered the call of battery by adding in a deeper sleep implementation than existing deep sleep. This comes in the form of Doze. The feature make use of the devices sensor to smartly recognize when you have left your device for an extended period. During this period, wakelocks will be minimized. However, you can still continue on receiving higher priority notifications. Needless to say, this does have a tradeoff of not having up to date syncs across...
