Sprint Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear arriving on October 4

Sprint Galaxy Note 3

Sprint might be delaying the launch of the LG G2 on its network, but that’s not the case with Samsung‘s newest flagship. The carrier will be stocking up on the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch beginning from October 4. A previous report hinted at an October 2 release date, but this isn’t too far off. The carrier will begin selling the two devices through its online store and retail outlets respectively, so customers can walk into a Sprint outlet from October 4 to get their hands on the newest Samsung flagship.

The Galaxy Note 3 will be sold for $349.99 with a 2-year contract and will be available in Jet Black and Classic White color variants. The Galaxy Gear on the other hand will cost $299.99. Sprint will be offering the Galaxy Note 3 through its One Up upgrade plan for eligible customers.

It is slightly odd that Sprint is charging over $50 extra for its Galaxy Note 3 while AT&T and Verizon are charging $299.99 for the smartphone with the standard 2-year agreement. But these prices are bound to go down once third party retailers get their hands on the smartphone.
