The Galaxy Note 3 price dropped to just $149 with a new two-year contract.
The device is being offered at this rate through Amazon.com and if customers order it now, they can receive theirs by Monday, March 31. This is a pretty significant price cut and it arrived just as the Galaxy S5 makes its official debut through the carrier.
Specs on the Galaxy Note 3 include improved LTE connectivity, a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, Android 4.3, JellyBean, a 13-megapixel rear camera, LED Flash, a 2-megapixel front shooter, dual camera capabilities, and a redesigned version of the S Pen.
The Galaxy Note 3 comes with 3GB RAM. It also packs either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, depending on which model a user purchases. The battery is enhanced to a 3,200 mAh.
The Galaxy S5 will see an official release on Sprint and other major U.S. carriers on April 11.
The handset will replace the S4 as Samsung's current flagship device and features what the company deems a "glam" design with a perforated back plate that shines in different lighting conditions. It will have full LTE coverage, Wi-Fi MIMO 802.11 to cut down buffering, and a download booster that will allow users to download 1GB worth of media in 30 seconds.
Samsung has also drastically improved the battery that now provides users with 10 hours of web surfing, 12 hours of video playback and offers a new Ultra Power Saving mode. This new mode can grant the user another 24 hours' worth of power if their phone is at 10 percent. It does this by only keeping necessary functions on and turning the screen to black and white.
