The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch will make their Canadian debut on October 4th. At this point, TELUS is the only carrier to commit to this date but we expect to hear similar announcements from other carriers soon.

TELUS did not announce pricing but a look to the U.S. where similar announcements are happening suggests that we will see the Galaxy Note 3 go for about CA$299 on a two-year term. It could even go for as low as CA$249 with some carriers.
The Galaxy Gear smartwatch will debut alongside on the same day. With U.S. pricing set at US$299, we can expect a similar price here in Canada. It could be discounted when bundled with the Galaxy Note 3.
Other carriers who have confirmed that they will carry the Galaxy Note 3 are Bell Mobility, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers Wireless, SaskTel, Videotron and WIND Mobile. All are likely to announce their own plans for both devices shortly.
Let us know below if you plan on picking up either the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy Gear or both on October 4th.
