BELLEVUE, Wash. -- October 09, 2012

T-Mobile USA, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung
Mobile), today announced the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note^® II. The new
smartphone features T-Mobile’s largest smartphone screen — a 5.5-inch HD Super
AMOLED^® screen — for an enhanced entertainment experience and improved
productivity while using the device. The Galaxy Note II is T-Mobile’s first
device with a quad-core processor, featuring Samsung’s 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos
processor. In addition, the Galaxy Note II is T-Mobile’s first smartphone
shipping with Android^™ 4.1 Jelly Bean and the device’s 3100mAh battery powers
up to 15 hours of talk time^1.

“The Samsung Galaxy Note II 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, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “When
combined with our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan, the Galaxy Note II is a
true powerhouse device with exclusive features, amazing 4G experiences and
superior value that only T-Mobile can deliver.”

Entertainment

Only T-Mobile Galaxy Note II customers will have access to an exciting new
racing game preloaded on the device, which will include three free levels. In
addition, T-Mobile’s exclusive version of the racing game will be optimized to
interact with a MOGA^™ Mobile Gaming System, bringing an immersive,
console-quality gaming experience to the palms of T-Mobile customers’ hands.

The Galaxy Note II also enables T-Mobile customers to bring their
entertainment to the big screen by wirelessly sharing content, such as games,
movies and TV shows on their smartphone, to any HDMI-capable TV via the
AllShare Cast feature and AllShare Cast Wireless Hub accessory. The AllShare
Cast Wireless Hub accessory is currently available in T-Mobile retail stores
and at www.T-Mobile.com for $99.99.

Productivity

Building on the Premium Suite of productivity features offered with the
original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II delivers an even more robust
portfolio of tools for business professionals. The enhanced S Pen^™ gives
users a more precise and natural writing and drawing experience, making
creativity and collaboration a breeze. New applications for the S Pen, such as
Air View which gives the ability to preview content simply by hovering the S
Pen over an email, calendar entry, image gallery or video, helps Galaxy Note
II users get more done – even faster.

The Galaxy Note II is a SAFE^™ (Samsung Approved for Enterprise) device,
providing the ability to securely sync corporate email, calendars, contacts
and sensitive information. In addition, the Galaxy Note II includes T-Mobile’s
Wi-Fi Calling feature making it easy for T-Mobile customers to make and
receive calls no matter where life takes them.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available in Titanium Gray and Marble White
color options. The smartphone is expected to be available nationwide at
T-Mobile retail stores, select national retailers and dealers, and online via
www.T-Mobile.com in the coming weeks.
