AT&T getting Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear on October 4

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Galaxy Gear

If you’re an AT&T customer (like me) and are waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to come out (also like me), AT&T has announced a launch date and it’s only a few days away! The Galaxy Note 3, along with its companion smartwatch the Galaxy Gear, is launching on October 4 both online and in retail stores.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will launch with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920×1080, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with a microSD slot, a 13MP camera, and a 3,200 mAh battery. It’s a beast of a phone, and its S Pen active stylus makes it even better.

The Galaxy Gear features a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display at 320×320, an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 1.9MP camera capable of shooting 720p video, 4GB of storage, a 315 mAh battery, and the ability to run apps from Samsung’s app store. It will get a full day’s worth of battery life and will run on Bluetooth 4.0 LE. It will be compatible with the Note 3, with compatibility for the S 4 and Note 2 coming soon.

The Galaxy Note 3 will be $299.99 on contract at launch, which is the norm for the Note series. The Galaxy Gear will be $299.99, not needing any sort of contract. I’m excited for this phone to come out on my favorite carrier, are you?

    Sorry, not interested in either, as my Note (1) was left out to dry on ICS, and the
    watch will not work with my next phone (hopefully) Nexus 5.
    As much as I love Sammy products, the size of the S 3 Note is just too big for
    what I would consider a usable hand held phone.
    The watch battery, which only lasts 1 day, will become another 3/4 day watch after 1 year
    of use which will make it a pain to recharge while at the office.
    All in all, not the products for me … but I am sure that many other users will love the phone and
    watch combo.

    • britney freeze

      my bf’s parents just got a new Lincoln MKZ Hybrid by working parttime off of a pc online. Continue……….

  • donger

    Nope to either. Samsung needs to make better quality phones. Why pay a premium for it?

    • theviper21

      They’re not the best phones, but I think they make decent quality phones. At least their trying to innovate, even though every new feature they come out with might not be a hit.


    Need Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but blacklisted

  • Paul Atreides

    I want the watch but not at the current price.

  • jpswain48

    Galaxy Note 3,,,,,Yes……ATT…..NO

    Recommendation; GN3 @ T-Mobile $199…….$21 mo.

    Galaxy Gear Watch @ $299…..No
    Galaxy Gear Watch @ $99…….Probably

    For those who think Samsung’s products do not measure up, I suggest you read the specs. There is no phone currently available that’s better equipped. For those who deride the Note as too big, there are a thousand smaller phones for you to choose from, pick one.

    • Michael

      I just hopped over to T-Mobile’s website and the only 20 dollar plan they offer is a mobile hotspot. The cheapest Data plan they offer for a phone is 50 bux + taxes and fees for unlimited talk, text and web, throttled after 500 megs…. Seriously, can you link me to the page that offers a phone/data plan for 21 bux. Thanks!

      • Michael

        Oh.. You are talking about paying for the phone, not the data plan… So that’s like 200 bux down than $71 a month + taxes and fees. That’s really not terrible. You’d be paying around 90 bux a month for something comparable at AT&T, plus an additional 100 for the phone. Haven’t shopped around in years. I just pay like $45 a month as I’m added onto a family account that I’m grandfathered in to an unlimited data plan. Never switched out of it.

  • josue85

    Dang, Verizon is making me wait until the 11th. I love these big phones, I was waiting on the HTC One Mega (or whatever the big variant is called), but after seeing it would be using a mid range chipset, I’m going N3.

    • andreina

      did you pre order? and if u did when did u put in in the order .

  • Bart

    @Dima: At 1st I wasn’t the least bit interested in the Note3. But when I learned they enhanced the pen function AND made the “back” and “list” buttons reactive to the pen, I changed my mind. I hope you enjoy the phone. And… contrary to what others have said, AT&T rocks here in northern CA. T-Mobile has very spotty coverage where I live. Sprint is even worse.

    • Dima Aryeh

      I agree! In my area in North California, T-Mo and Sprint are really spotty but AT&T is solid for the most part. Thanks for the kind words too!

  • Bakes

    I currently own the note 2 and its unbelievably flawed! I like samsung’s ideas and products but honestly, how many of the “air gestures” really work? oh and yeah im still running android version 4.1.2 and my galaxy s2 is on 4.2..whats up with that?

  • Matt

    I just got the Moto X on Verizon and I do like this phone a lot but I watch videos (football) on my phone a lot and I just want the bigger screen. So I’m going to exchange my moto x for the note 3. I’ve never been a fan of the Samsung devices so I hope this one is worth the upgrade. Either way I have a 2 month return policy so if it doesn’t live up to the hype I’m getting the HTC one max.

  • Sara Fleischer

    Keira. if you, thought Lillian`s blog is inconceivable… on saturday I got Bugatti Veyron after bringing in $8267 thiss month and-also, $10k this past munth. it’s by-far the most comfortable work Ive ever done.
