Any device worth its salt would be shipped off to the FCC in order to gain approval before it is unleashed upon the masses, and the same can be said for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. We do know that even smaller carriers such as US Cellular would be on the receiving end of this device sometime next month, while Verizon Wireless subscribers can get a hold of theirs from October 10th onward. Much has been said and publicized about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so it is nice to see a pair of American versions of the device pass through the FCC.
The first variant happens to be the SM-N900A, which has just received approval while boasting support for AT&T’s GSM, HSPA and LTE frequencies. This is most probably what we ought to see when October 1st rolls around. Apart from that, there will be a second model, known as the SM-N900R4, that does seem to be headed in the direction of other LTE-capable CDMA carriers including the likes of Sprint, US Cellular and a bunch of other regional US providers. None of the FCC filings threw up any surprises like a fingerprint recognition ring, but one thing’s for sure – you will see more and more Galaxy Note 3s in the hands of smartphone users from next month onward.
