samsung galaxy note 4 charcoal black aa 2

Note fans, the time is nigh! Samsung announced today that its hotly anticipated Note 4 will go up for pre-order from tomorrow, September 19.

In the United States, the S Pen-toting beast will become available in stores from October 17. And that’s the time parcels will begin shipping to those who pre-ordered.

Across the pond, UK customers will have a week less to wait, as the Note 4 will hit the store shelves from October 10.

When Samsung devices go up for pre-order, carriers typically announce the availability on their own networks, so expect a flurry of press releases about this time tomorrow. So far we know that all major carriers in the US will be offering the Note 4, and the device will also go on sale from Amazon, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Target, and Walmart.

At least in the US, Samsung is throwing in a trade-in deal. If you pre-order the Note 4 between tomorrow and October 16, you can get up to $200 by bringing in any working smartphone. Details will go soon go live here.
