Verizon Wireless will sell the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $299.99 on a new two-year contract or $699 outright. Additionally, Verizon will have a Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear bundle available for $599.98, according to a leaked document sent to AndroidSPIN.

Looking at the bundle, we don’t know if this is on- or off-contract, but considering the price of the Galaxy Note 3 and Gear outright, we’re probably looking at a contract. It shouldn’t be long before Verizon releases official information, confirming or denying that.

Now, if you’re looking at switching over to Verizon Wireless for the Galaxy Note 3, you should be aware of a few price differences. Much like AT&T, the Galaxy Note 3 costs $299.99 on a new two-year contract, however, T-Mobile requires a down payment of $199 for the device, followed by 24 monthly payments of $21.

Prospective buyers can pre-order the Galaxy Note 3 or the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear bundle right now. Actual release date information remains unknown, though it shouldn’t be much longer than Oct. 5, when T-Mobile launches their variant of the phone.

UPDATE: Verizon’s pre-order page is up and ready to go! The Note 3 will in fact cost $299.99 on contract, or $699.99 outright. The Galaxy Gear is also available alongside the Note 3 in a $599.98 bundle. According to Verizon, the Gear and Note 3 will both ship by October 10th.

    i can buy a used motorcycle for that!
    and im not into that galaxy gear watch thing. verizon has got to lower the price but im sure they will cause sales are gonna be weak for that kind of price.

    I wish people would stop complaining about the price of the watch. Most $300 watches just tell you the time and date, don’t connect to a phone, and are not made with quality materials. So, $300 for a some cool watch that is not smart, or a $300 smart watch that does more than telling you time and date. Get over the price!! Plus, compare the hardware of a $150 Pebble to the $300 Gear, different hardware and features, like apples to oranges. Both watches are priced very well for what they are made of and what features they have. IMO, Both are priced better than a standard watch that hardly helps you at all and just looks pretty.

      most watches also last longer than a day without needing a recharge.
      samsung is of course able to charge what they want for it, but at the same time people have the choice to reject the product at that price which they will. samsung will soon learn that the price it’s at now will lead it to be a COLOSSAL failure (more so than the ability to work with devices other than the new tab and note3).

    I haven’t been able to find any info anywhere about this. But it appears the note 3 supports wireless charging. The galaxy S3 had 2 contact pins in the back cover for that. The Note 3 has 5. I wonder what those 3 extra pins are for.

      Would it make it easier to find an adequate charging position on the larger mats? Or maybe it could charge faster?

    $299 on contract. And still no ear buds.
    Just like the Note 2.

    cool stuff.. I like tech toys! I hate to follow trends and upgrade every year but this is hard to resist. I have the SN2 and love it. I rarely use the s-pen though.
