The next wave of Samsung smart devices are headed to the United States on several carriers, and here with an announcement on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch comes AT&T first and foremost. What you’ll see with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the third generation in the mid-sized device lineup, not quite a tablet but more than a smartphone, fully packed with a hugely dense display and Samsung’s own S Pen technology. Meanwhile the Galaxy Gear acts as a wrist-based accompaniment for your Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S 4, also working with its own camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note 3 will be appearing on the 4th of October, the Galaxy Note 3 with 4G LTE data speeds to kick off the connections. This large device will be appearing with a $299.99 USD price tag attached to a 2-year contract or with AT&T’s “Next” plan for $35 per month. This price is comparable to other carriers who have yet to announce availability in the USA.
With the Galaxy Gear you’re working with a display small enough to look unobtrusive on your wrist, but large enough to interact with on a one-finger-touch basis. Because this device does not work with mobile data on its own, you’ll find no data fees or contractual obligations attached. In other words – no matter where you buy the Galaxy Gear, you’re getting the same device. This smartwatch is priced at $299.99 as well, here without any contract or additional fees.
