Samsung Galaxy Note 3 visits FCC wearing AT&T and Sprint bands
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3has already been unveiled and two variants coming to the states have just visited the FCC. One model, the SM-N900A, visited the Feds containing support for AT&T's GSM. HSPA and LTE pipelines. The second unit, with the model number SM-N900R4, was appropriately dressed to connect with LTE signals from CDMA flavored carriers like Sprint, U.S. Cellular and some smaller regional operators.

So far, we know that the phablet will launch via AT&T on October 1st, via T-Mobile on October 2nd and Verizon on October 10th. If you're interested in winning a free Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the companion Gear smartwatch, simply register your email address with T-Mobile before September 15th to be entered into a contest to win both devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is soon to have some more competition with the expected Elephant Man version of the HTC One, rumored to be called (rather uninspiring) the HTC One Max. And of course, Japanese OEM Sony has the largest screened smartphone in the industry with the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, a device that has already launched. And a couple of camera centric phablets are apparently on the way with the Nokia Lumia 1520 expected to be introduced on September 26th. Three days before that, the OPPO N1 should be unveiled with its high-end snapper on board.

If you love big screens, the latter months of 2013 are going to be your time.
