The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unlocked version is now available in over 58 countries and the prices have also been revealed.
The carrier models are expected to launch within the next few days. The device will also roll out in another 82 countries before the end of the year.
The device will retail in the U.K. off-contract for £649 and can be purchased directly through Samsung's website and will sell for £629.95 through Carphone Warehouse. It will retail unlocked in the U.S. and Canada for $770.
In terms of major carriers, AT&T will release it on Oct. 1 for $299, T-Mobile on Oct. 2 $199, Verizon on Oct. 10, $299 and Sprint, Oct. 4 for $349.
The company is expected to launch two other versions of the device sometime before the end of 2013.
Samsung will launch a cheaper version with weaker specs and a limited edition with a plastic-based display sometime in the very near future.
The cheaper model will go into production in November and will feature an LCD display instead of Super AMOLED and an 8-megapixel camera instead of the 13-megapixel shooter found on the original version. It will have the same exterior design as the Note 3 and will still come with an S Pen.
Samsung has reportedly been able to decrease production costs by 30 percent by altering the specs. The low-end model was supposed to launch at the same time as the regular version, however, Samsung held off on the release to protect the brand. Several reports in the summer pointed to this model being released, but when Samsung unveiled the device, there was no sign of it.
The new limited edition is said to have a flexible display and will debut sometime during the next few weeks. These reports come from ZDNet Korea and Chosun. It correlates with previous rumors that said Samsung would launch a Note 3 with a flexible display.
