Verizon Note 3 and Galaxy Gear pre-sales begin tomorrow, LG G2 launches September 12th

T-Mobile wasn’t the only carrier keen on announcing availability details for a couple of hot, upcoming phones. Big Red — aka, Verizon — also has information to share today about the launch of both the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smart watch).

For the former, the carrier has confirmed that folks can pick it up starting September 12th for $200 after signing a new two-year contract. As for the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, we don’t have any release dates to look forward to just yet, but Verizon will be allowing folks to pre-order the dynamic duo starting tomorrow (price not yet confirmed).

The LG G2 was revealed late last month, when LG took to New York to show the world what they hope will be a solid contender up against devices from all the other big guys this holiday season.

It certainly won’t be hard to grab the attention of many with its 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.2 and more. Our hands-on time with the device taught us that it’s not one to sneeze at, though LG’s need to differentiate themselves by putting power and volume buttons on the back might have been to their detriment in areas of comfort.

As for the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, it was just yesterday that we’d gotten our hands on these bad boys. The former is a 5.7-inch 1080p smartphone that will come with an unheard of 3GB of RAM, Samsung’s Octa Core processor (quad-core processor in certain markets), a 13 megapixel camera, and everything else your heart desires.

Of course, its unique S Pen adds a lot of great features to an already jam-packed suite of them. The Galaxy Gear, on the other hand, is a smart watch that will act as the device’s best companion. With tons of apps, the ability to get and respond to notifications, and more, the Galaxy Gear will allow you to keep up with your digital life without the need to take your phone out of your purse or pocket.

Our extensive hands-on with both these beauties can be found here, and you can bet this phone is already on our radar. We’ll be anticipating their arrival, so be sure to stay tuned to Phandroid as we hope to obtain more info about their release date on Verizon (as well as the other four US carriers set to offer it later this year).

    Jesus… They’ll never stop with the multiple logos will they? Your meant to be a dumb pipe American carriers!!!

    • John Andrew Stuart

      -_-

      • Roaduardo

        Haha, classic reaction to Verizon branding!

        • John Andrew Stuart

          I couldn’t help myself lol!

    • Dan

      haha, I’m happy that my phone provider (rogers) doesn’t brand the phones

      • Roaduardo

        That’s how it should be. At least Sprint prints their name on the BACK of my phone where it can be easily covered if I wanted to.

      • Steve

        I’m just happy that such an insignificant nuance such as carrier branding doesn’t get my panties in a wad. How tragic would that be?

        • Dan

          Branding probably has an impact on resale value. Between branded/unbranded, wouldn’t you prefer unbranded? Anyway, you took the time to post so…

          • Steve

            seeing how a VZW phone, regardless of branding, is only going to of value to someone on VZW, I don’t think it would have much effect. Would I rather have no branding? Sure, but being able to make and receive calls without dropping them and being able to count on reliable bandwidth is far more important to me. I realize I am the minority as most people see their device as a status symbol rather than a useful tool.

          • GavinGG

            I agree with you Steve. A logo on the phone is not gonna interfere with the phones overall performance, so I have no reason to complain. People are so anal about the littlest of things.

          • Dan

            I agree. Although (in Canada anyway) cell providers have to unlock your phone free of charge at the end of the contract. So once that’s done, anyone can use it. I bet some people would not want to buy my phone if it had a brand other than their provider.

          • Roaduardo

            Not sure I’d agree about the status symbol. It’s debatable. Back during the early iPhone days yes. Back then the iPhone was a phone that was truly a status symbol.

            Today, there’s just too much real value with mobile phones that I don’t see someone walking with a Nexus, Galaxy or G devices as a status symbol.

            I would argue that many more see their mobile device as a real tool and something for entertainment. Not really something to walk around with to impress people. Unless we’re talking about folks in middle school and high school.

            The branding thing to me just does not make practical sense because the phone is being sold on other carriers. It’s not a serious issue of course, but it’s still annoying. Champagne problems.

          • Steve

            I think you nailed it with the last sentence :)

            I agree with everything you’re saying here. it’s just such a tired argument and the battles between carriers, OS’s and OEMs is ridiculous.

          • Roaduardo

            I invest in a mobile device that fits me needs/wants. I don’t care who’s name is on it. Advertisement though has done wonders pushing consumers into certain camps, it’s very amusing to watch. I rally behind my national flag, not a technology one.

            “seeing how a VZW phone, regardless of branding, is only going to of value to someone on VZW, I don’t think it would have much effect.” Not necessarily. Verizon phones(along with Sprint) can be flashed to some regional carriers like MetroPCS.

        • John Andrew Stuart

          I don’t wear panties. ;)

  • harold

    Am I missing something do the phone and watch come together?

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      No they’re sold separately, but you can bet Verizon (and everyone else) will be trying to push the two together.
