While Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have all started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 3, Sprint is yet to spill the beans on its launch plans for Samsung’s latest flagship handset.

As we already know, the Now Network will receive the Galaxy Note 3 as well, at least that’s what Samsung and Sprint said a few weeks ago, back at IFA 2013. But the carrier has remained quiet on actual availability details and pricing structure for the handset.

IBTimes says it spoke to a Sprint retail representative who revealed that the phone will be available with the mobile operator starting with October 2, although this rumored launch date is yet to become official:

Pricing details are also unavailable and it’s not clear whether the carrier will start taking pre-orders anytime soon, or whether it’ll start selling its Galaxy Note 3 version directly in stores.

In addition to Sprint, U.S. Cellular is also yet to unveil launch plans for the Galaxy Note 3.
