T-Mobile on Monday announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will go up for pre-order this Wednesday, Sept. 18. The carrier actually announced availability following the device’s announcement earlier this month, and this newest development gives buyers the opportunity to lock their purchase in. In addition to the Galaxy Note 3 hitting T-Mobile on Oct. 2, the carrier also said the Galaxy Gear would be available on the same day for $299.
Once pre-orders go live, T-Mobile will offer Samsung’s latest phablet for $199 down with 24 equal payments of $21 on its Simple Choice Plan. Shipments are expected to start going out Oct. 2, with wider availability at T-Mobile retailers, dealers and online expected as well. Samsung’s companion Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be sold separately.
The Galaxy Note 3 comes equipped with a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, S Pen functionality, Android 4.3, 13-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM and some blazing fast guts. Need a quick refresher on what the Galaxy Note 3 is like? Check out our hands-on with the device from IFA earlier this month.
