Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date establishes that the powerful new phablet will come to all major carriers in the U.S. including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was announced on September 4 at the Samsung Unpacked Episode 2 event, but the worldwide global release date of the device is September 25. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is known to be among the most expensive Android devices on the market.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date has been confirmed by AT&T and T-Mobile who have along with the other major U.S. carriers have announced that they will carry the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the companion Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. AT&T has opened up pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $299 with a two-year contract or $35 a month with the AT&T Next plan. The total price looks to be $725 without a contract. The color options for AT&T are in black and white with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 being available to ship on October 1.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date for T-Mobile has also been confirmed in a press release. The device has been available for pre-order online since September 18. The T-Mobile price is largely similar to AT&T, the initial cost of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be $200 (199.99) with $21 monthly payments in the T-Mobile Simple Choice plan for 24 months. The total cost of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for T-Mobile is $704. The T-Mobile official release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is Wednesday October 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date for Sprint hasn't been established yet. The Sprint page just says that the device is coming soon and offers pre-registration. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date for Verizon offers the device for $299.99 with a two-year contract and $0 down. With the Verizon Edge plan the cost is $29.31 a month for 24 months while the month to month no contract plan offers it for the cheaper price of $699.99. Of course it's still very expensive regardless of what carrier you use. The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date is one of the latest at October 12.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date hasn't been accompanied by much information about the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. In all likelihood these carriers are trying to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 out the door first, but we are surprised to see that none of them appear to be offering two for one deals with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, since the devices were announced together and are specifically compatible. The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will also be compatible with the Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S2 when it is released once it gets the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. Either way the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is coming to more carriers and its expensive.
