Galaxy Note 2 Release Event to Feature Kanye West

The upcoming Galaxy Note 2 release event will be graced with a performance by hip-hop star and producer Kanye West.

Samsung confirmed earlier today that the G.O.O.D. Music maestro will be assisting the company to launch one of the most highly anticipated devices this year at its upcoming event in NYC.

The company is now offering NYC fans a chance to attend the performance on its Facebook page. Samsung still has not released the details, but just said to stay tuned to the Facebook to find out exactly how to enter.

The Galaxy Note 2 will launch on T-Mobile in the near future as the device is already listed on the company's website.

"Samsung innovation at its best, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 offers unmatched power with a large screen and new slimmer design," reads the carrier's page for the phablet. "Create produce, and share with this fun all-in-one device."

On the side of the page it says that the Galaxy Note is coming soon to T-Mobile and that pricing is not yet available.

The Galaxy Note 2 release was confirmed by the carrier in a press release earlier this month.

"The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the latest innovative device to join T-Mobile's portfolio. It takes the all-in-one device concept to the next level and we anticipate it will replace many standalone devices consumers have today," said Brad Duea, the senior vice president of product management for T-Mobile USA.

"When combined with our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan, the Galaxy Note 2 is a true powerhouse device with exclusive features, amazing 4G experiences and superior value that only T-Mobile can deliver," he added.

The Galaxy Note 2 will be T-Mobile's first device to feature a quad-core processor and will also be the first to come with Android 4.1, JellyBean pre-installed.
