Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launching on Oct. 4 for $349.99Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Grab your calendars, Sprint customers, because your carrier has officially announced the date on which it'll begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Sprint revealed this morning that it'll launch the Galaxy Note 3 on Oct. 4 in Classic White and Jet Black color options. Pricing for Sprint's Note 3 will be set at $349.99 with a two-year contract. The big yellow carrier also plans to begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Gear on Oct. 4 for $299.99. The Galaxy Gear will be available in Jet Black, Oatmeal Beige and Wild Orange.
Sprint hadn't said much about its Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy Gear launch plans up until this morning, so it's good to see the carrier finally come clean. The good news for Sprint subscribers is that both devices are less than two weeks away from hitting their pockets and wrists. The Note 3's $349.99 on-contract pricing may give some shoppers pause, but it's also worth noting that Sprint recently launched a new One Up program that allows customers to get a new device for no money down and then spread the cost of that hardware out over 24 monthly payments.
