When Samsung pulled back the curtain on the Galaxy Note 4, all we knew is that it would launch sometime in October. Today the company got more specific, and announced that the phablet will start rolling out on October 17, with pre-orders beginning soon.

The Galaxy Note 4 will hit US store shelves on the 17th, with all four of the major carriers (plus US Cellular) supporting the phablet. Best Buy, Amazon, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart will all be selling the handset as well.

Pre-orders are set to start tomorrow, September 19, though you'll need to check with specific carriers retailers for more info on that.

We're waiting on confirmation of launch countries outside the US, and will update when we hear something.

Samsung also hasn't announced any pricing yet, and it could vary a bit at different retailers. I'd be surprised, though, if we didn't see the same US$700 full retail, $300 on-contract price that we saw with the last couple of Galaxy Notes.

There wasn't any word on availability of the Galaxy Note Edge, Gear S smartwatch or Gear VR virtual reality headset. Since Samsung listed those as launching either in October or later in 2014, I imagine we'll be hearing more soon.

LOL. Like anyone cares. Everyone is focused on getting an iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung is in a world of hurt. Chinese companies are undercutting them on price at the low end, Apple is outperforming them on the high end. Wonder if they'll get that Tizen thing working in time to save their bacon?
