The carrier issued a press released last week confirming that it will offer the smartphone-tablet hybrid and that it will be available in the very near future.
"Arriving later this year running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), Galaxy Note 2 with 4G LTE combines the productivity of a tablet with the convenience of a smartphone and the S Pen features you need to unleash your creativity," wrote AT&T.
The carrier went on to explain the device as a powerful handset gadget that possesses PC-like processing power and advanced features such as Popup Video, new Gallery views and "great gaming performance" in a truly pocketable device.
AT&T also announced several other devices in the press release including the Samsung Galaxy Express, Galaxy Rugby Pro and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. All four of these devices will run on the carrier's 4G LTE network.
