Starting Sept. 25 the smartphone will be available in more than 140 countries around the world. It will also be available in the U.S. later this year on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular, Samsung said without elaborating on more exact dates.
For users that want the S Pen stylus but on a tablet, Samsung also launched the "2014 edition" of the Galaxy Note 10.1, which has 10.1-inch screen with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. It has many of the same hardware and software specifications as the Note 3, including the same processors and 3GB of RAM and the S Pen improvements.
The Wi-Fi version of the Note 10.1 weighs 535 grams, is 7.9 millimeters thick and has a 8,220mAh battery. It will start shipping in September and come with three connectivity options: Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi and 3G, or Wi-Fi and LTE.
