While Samsung (KRX:005935) is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Note 3 at a media event, scheduled to take place on Sept. 4 in Berlin, a new report has claimed that the device could land on Three UK on Sept. 16.
According to a leaked internal document from Three UK, obtained by Engadget from an anonymous source, the U.K.-based carrier will get the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on Sept. 16, almost two weeks after the handset’s expected unveiling.
The report comes hot on the heels of another report from SamMobile, which said that the South Korean tech giant would launch the Galaxy Note 3 on Sept. 27 in Taiwan, while the device would be up for pre-orders on Sept. 16. According to that report, Samsung could possibly release the Note 3 in other countries around the same time.
Coming back to the leaked Three UK document, the list included the Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) Xperia Z1, also known as Honami. According to it, the Xperia Z1 will also be announced on Sept. 4 and will be landing on the carrier on Sept. 24.
In addition to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z1, the purported Three UK listing also showed that Nokia’s (NYSE:NOK) Lumia 1020 would be launched on the carrier on Sept. 25, while LG’s (KRX:066570) G2 smartphone would be arriving on Oct. 1.
