The AT&T Galaxy Note 3 release date is set for October 1st with a $299 on a two-year contract price, bringing the new Galaxy Note to the U.S. just a week after the international release.
AT&T opened up Galaxy Note 3 pre-orders this morning, promising orders will ship on October 1st, which lines up with a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 release date that is currently set for October 2nd.
AT&T is Samsung’s closest partner in the U.S., but it looks like Samsung is wisely choosing to get the Galaxy Note 3 to as many carriers as possible as fast as possible with near simultaneous Galaxy Note 3 release dates in the U.S.
Despite a larger screen, and 32GB of on board storage, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 price remains competitive at $299. AT&T still sells the Galaxy Note 2 at this price. This is a fair price for the Note 3, but it would not shock us to see several Galaxy Note 3 deals arrive before the U.S. Galaxy Note 3 release date arrives in October.
AT&T offers the Galaxy Note 3 at several different price options to meet the needs of consumers that want a contract, no contract or to use the AT&T NEXT program with the Galaxy Note 3. The AT&T Galaxy Note 3 off contract price is high at $729.
- AT&T Galaxy Note 3 two-year price – $299
- AT&T Galaxy Note 3 one-year price – $549
- AT&T Galaxy Note 3 two-year price – $35 a month for 20 months
Customers who opt for the AT&T Galaxy Note 3 on AT&T Next can upgrade to a new phone in 12 months by trading in the old phone. This program is similar to offerings from T-Mobile and Verizon.
The AT&T Galaxy Note 3 is available in Jet Black and Classic White, but there is no sign of the pink Galaxy Note 3 on AT&T, which could mean that it will be a carrier exclusive in the U.S., or that Samsung will offer it later after an initial run focuses on the basic Galaxy Note 3 colors.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3 at Berlin on Wednesday with many of the Galaxy S4 features and several design and feature upgrades from the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The AT&T Galaxy Note 3 comes with a larger 5.7-inch display that boasts a 1080P full HD resolution for a better viewing experience than the Galaxy Note 2. The device includes a new S Pen that activates Air Command, a new fan out menu with access to five S Pen options include the new Pen Window multitasking that lets users draw a window to launch an app at the perfect size on top of their current app.
