Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3 at the beginning of the September. No official release dates were announced, although AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile have given us release dates since then. All 3 of those companies are currently taking pre-orders for the Note 3. AT&T will release the Note 3 on Oct. 1st, T-Mobile on Oct. 2nd, and Verizon on Oct. 10th. According to a Sprint retail representative who recently spoke to IBTimes, Sprint is going to be releasing their version of the Note 3 on October 2nd.

So far, Sprint has been pretty quiet about when it plans to release the Note 3. They do have a page set up for the device on their website, but it simply says “coming soon.” The Sprint retail rep says that a  Samsung rep paid a visit to their retail location and gave them a preview of the Sprint Note 3. It’s common for manufacturer reps to visit wireless retail stores to demo devices in the weeks before a launch. We know Sprint is getting the device, so now it’s just a matter of time.

In case you have been living under a rock and don’t know about Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 3 features a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display. It is powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, at least here in the US, and also supports LTE connectivity. It has 3 GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel rear camera and 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera. The rear camera records video in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second. Some models of the Note 3 will support an absolutely insane 4K video recording. The Note 3 runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, has a 3200 mAh battery and features upgraded audio with 192 KHz playback support.

The Note 3 will pack Samsung’s TouchWiz software suite, too. That includes new S Pen functionality, an improved multi-tasking experience with the Air command feature, and updated Screen Write, S Finder, and Action Memo apps. The Galaxy Note 3 is going to sell like crazy this fall and winter. If you’re a Sprint subscriber and have been waiting for word on a release date, have no fear. The Note 3 is coming to your carrier too.
