Three UK inventory

Sony Xperia Z1 also expected for Sept. 24th launch

IFA

We were already all but certain that the Galaxy Note 3 would make its debut at Samsung's IFA 2013 presentation, and a leaked carrier inventory system screen shows us Samsung doesn't have much longer to announce the device. The image you see above, given to Engadget, is purportedly from carrier Three UK and shows the upcoming releases for a few different devices including the Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1 (aka "Honami").

The Note 3 is pegged for September 16th, with the Xperia Z1 coming right after on September 24th. We can't be sure that the release dates will be these exact days for all carriers and regions, but given that we dive right into IFA next week and a major UK carrier is ready to sell the phones quickly thereafter, we have to assume they'll be on sale quickly.

Companies need to start releasing quickly after announcing new hardware. It's lame when a release is 3-4 months after an announcement. I will say that's one thing apple's good at. Here's our new iPhone, get it in 2 weeks.

Actually it's one week after.

My bet is that the 16th is the preorder date, with phones shipping on the 27th.

XChrisX says:

I hope this releases around the same time for AT&T, my S3 is in sore need of retirement LOL.

NoNexus says:

XChrisX says:

It will probably get announced at IFA. Samsung is rumored to release 4.3 for the S3 as well. Too bad I'll be on to the Note 3 by then!

Definitely looking forward to the Galaxy Note 3. Say goodbye Note 2 it's been grand. A new family member is here now.

The fact that you think of these phones as "family members" is quite sad.

Quit being a douch.

He can't help his asswipe ways. He isn't buying anything worthwhile anyway.

He walking around with the Galaxy Nexus on Sprint. You know he ain't having any fun 2011 came and went.

You know cash isn't flowing in his world. That in it's is very sad.

Wow. A bunch of childish name calling and pretty stupid "insults" from a guy twice my age. You must be proud of yourself.

As for what's "worthwhile": that's completely dependent on the person. As they say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure", or applied to this situation: what you deem "worthwhile", may not be so for everyone else. A "man" of your age should be more openminded.

Also, you missed a word or two the following sentence: "That in it's is very sad." Good job.

Raider Duck says:

I have a theory that Yarrell is actually a plant for HTC or some other manufacturer, sent here to deliberately make Samsung owners look arrogant and stupid.

squiddy20 says:

Only one problem with that theory: about 2 years ago he wouldn't shut up about how "perfect" HTC was, even going so far as calling them God (or at least God-like) once or twice. He even claimed for many months that the Evo 3D would be "Sprint's flagship device well into 2012"... and it was discontinued about 2 months into the year...

Raider Duck says:

It still won't be as good as the LG Optimus G Pro. But go ahead and enjoy your inferior expensive phone.

I got a 3-2-1 PAYG SIM recently to test the network. Basically there is a HUGE black hole centred on my house - zero coverage. I have to walk to the end of my road to even send a text! They really need to improve coverage, dead zones 30 miles from London. Sorry 3, you're a hopeless git.

Mrshades says:

Huh?

Posted via Android Central App

Thats unforutinte lol Speak as you find though I have great coverage with them, in and around the Cardiff area.

plunder says:

Good

plunder says:

Good

Posted via Android Central App

all networks have a dark spot with coverage where I live in London just where my house is I don't get signal from ee/tmob/orange so it's not only 3

plunder says:

Yes. In fact I expected it. But I would not want a contract with a company that can't serve my home, hence this experiment.

You have a fairly new phone, so maybe not? I'm currently using HTC Rezound -- definitely looking forward to the Note 3 release :p

NoNexus says:

excited

baldypal says:

Why are there 2 Sony phones in the Samsung category when there's is a separate category listed specifically for Sony phones? Makes me question the integrity of that piece of paper or screenshot, which evere it is.

sk3litor says:

Noooo not yet Samsung. I don't have enough money yet. Well by the time it gets to the states and then to Verizon should give me a little more time. Any one want a 6 month old beautiful white note2 around october/novemberish? ;)
