Samsung has two big releases in the next few weeks, set to span over 149 different countries, entering market most Android partners don’t even think about when planning a new release.
Canada is sometimes looked at as a tier one launch country, other times it is a tier two. It seems for Samsung they will be launching the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear a week later than in the US and other countries.
The planned release date is October 4, a week and a half later than the US launch. According to reports, Telus will launch the smartphone first alongside the Galaxy Gear, with Rogers and Bell joining in the same week.
With the three main carriers in Canada normally grabbing every single device in sight, WIND Mobile, Mobilicity and other small carriers in the country will probably grab the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear weeks later.
The Galaxy Note 3 has a few new changes, instead of polycarbonate Samsung has added faux leather to the back and the internals of the Note 3 have been bumped up, with a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB of RAM and a 3300mAh battery.
Galaxy Gear is one of the most exciting smartwatches we have seen, Pebble started the smartwatch craze with over 100,000 buyers so far and now Samsung has created a smartwatch worthy of a few buyers – if users want to splash out $299.
