Samsung Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note 3 coming to Canada on October 4th
Samsung Galaxy Gear and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had been announced at the IFA 2013 in Germany. The Galaxy Note 3 is the third generation Galaxy Note device while the Galaxy Gear is the first smartwatch of the Galaxy Series. According from Mobilesyrup, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy gear will be available in Canada on Friday, October 4th.
TELUS was the first to send confirmation of the date, but held the price back until further notice. The U.S. based carriers priced the Galaxy Note 3 at $299 on a 2-year term, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see it arrive between $249 and $299 depending on the carrier.
It’s also likely that the other incumbents, Rogers and Bell, will begin carrying the phone on the same day. WIND Mobile, Mobilicity, SaskTel, MTS and Videotron may also offer it on October 4th or shortly after.
The Galaxy Gear smartwatch will also be available on the 4th, at least through TELUS, and will likely cost $299 outright. Expect carriers to offer a bundle discount for the two pieces as well.
The Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7-inch display, a 13-megapixel camera supports 4K video recording, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The full specification about Galaxy Note 3 can be read here, and for Samsung Galaxy Gear above.
