Samsung’s FCC documentation for the Galaxy Note 3 was apparently filed on the day preceding the pre-IFA 2013 Unpacked 2 event, and it can now be found online.

We’re looking at the filing for the SM-N900, which is expected to be the international version of the handset. This Galaxy Note 3 version lacks LTE compatibility, according to the available paperwork.

However, Samsung will have LTE-ready Galaxy Note 3 models in those markets where LTE networks are up, North America included.

In fact, Samsung’s JK Shin said on stage that the Galaxy Note 3 will come with “the greatest number of [LTE] bands,” and that it will work “with all types of LTE networks, no matter where you are,” – assuming there’s an LTE network available in your area that is.

The Galaxy Note 3 will launch in various markets on September 25, with U.S. carriers getting it at some point in October – however, actual launch dates aren’t available for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular.

Of the U.S. mobile operators that will carry the Galaxy Note 3, only Verizon has announced that it’ll be taking pre-orders starting with September 6.
