Samsung Galaxy Note 3 U.S. Release Date Details

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 U.S. release date is coming after the rest of the world gets to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

At the tail end of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 event Samsung announced the U.S. Galaxy Note 3 release date would arrive in October, after the September 25th worldwide release date.

This is not surprising as Samsung devices normally arrive in the U.S. after a global launch, but it is disappointing news for shoppers that want to buy a AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Galaxy Note 3.

While there is no specific Samsung Galaxy Note 3 U.S. release dates announced, all appearances point to a fast Note 3 release in the U.S. and Samsung could deliver an AT&T Galaxy Note 3 release date in early October. Samsung and AT&T are tight partners and AT&T was one of the first in the U.S. to offer the Galaxy S4.

The good news about today’s announcement is that the major U.S. carriers are all on board for the Galaxy Note 3, which means we should see carriers pushing to get the device out near the same time.

After AT&T, expect a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 option with a Sprint Galaxy Note 3 soon after. The U.S. Cellular Galaxy Note 3 could come at any time after AT&T, but based on past moves a Verizon Galaxy Note 3 release date could be dead last.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes in 32GB and 64GB storage sizes and U.S. carriers may opt to only offer the 32GB model, or one carrier could offer a Galaxy Note 3 64GB as an exclusive. The device is available in black, white and pink, and we could see special color options arrive later down the line.


Samsung switched out the plastic back of the Galaxy Note 2 for a faux leather back on the Galaxy Note 3. This may help appease users that don’t like the plastic feel of Samsung devices. The Galaxy Note 3 still features a removable back and a 3200 mAh battery plus a Micro SD card slot.

There are new S Pen features like Air Command, which lets users quickly call up five S Pen apps or actions from any screen. There are also enhanced multitasking capabilities with the ability to use two of the same app in Multi-Window mode and a new Pen Window option that can call up an app in a window the user draws on the screen.

Samsung also added a new Multi Vision Group Play feature that lets users link up three Galaxy Note 3 screens to form one big screen for watching videos.

There is no Samsung Galaxy Note 3 price yet, but U.S. carriers will likely charge around $299 on release, as it seems the top end U.S. consumers are willing to pay.

  1. “Worldwide Release” in 149 countries September 25th and then they sneak in “October” in the US near the end.

    What I pile of $HIP!

  2. and that’s just the release date for AT&T Marc Lee, not for the other carriers. Which is another pile of $hip! release them all on the same damn week.

  3. I need this phone and the fact that is pink *sigh* They need to release it in the U.S on Verizon NOW. TAKE MY MONEY im sick of my iphone 4.

  4. Hey I’m on AT&T and did the pre-order last night. The final page states that your card will not be charged until the phone is ready to ship. So I hit submit and completed my order. I noticed today that AT&T has already charged my card. I call in to see why I was charged so early and was told my expected ship date is between Sept 11- Sept 13. Nice. Did anyone else have this happen?

  5. There is no option to order in pink, either! in other countries there are always lots of phones that we do not get and lots of options, they can also upgrade way faster than in the US. my brother lived in japan over 10 years ago, still have not see the kind of phone he had there, it was awesome too! at the time we did not have anything close and his was what he termed as a cheap free one! Since they make them, they get them first and have way more options….but would love to see more color option in the US. we are always stuck with white and black–think it is a ploy to sale more cases to personalize your device.
