Sprint is usually one of the first US carriers to announce their support for an upcoming handset, but as yet they have not made anything official in regard to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. So why the delay? We ask this because the Note 3 is expected to be one of the biggest handsets of 2013 and we are not talking about its size.
Speculating the Sprint Galaxy Note 3 release date window — Sprint currently says the Note 3 will be coming to its customers in the fall, which as we know begins in a week from today, although it does last until December 20th, and so that is a 3 month release window.
However, we cannot see Sprint making their customers wait for the Note 3 that long, although Verizon has made their customers wait for the HTC One even longer. While we do not expect to see Sprint make the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 available this month, we do believe it will be offered to its customers in October.
It is strange for Sprint to make its customers wait because they need all the help they can get, and with the iPhone 5C already up for pre-order and the iPhone 5S being released next week, offering the Note 3 at the same time would have given customers the choice they need, and so stopping them from jumping ship just to get the latest and greatest handsets.
When the Galaxy Note 3 is finally released on Sprint we have to wonder if there will be a few color choices, along with a discount if you purchase Galaxy Gear as well, which has been designed to help further the experience of the Note 3?
