Mobile operators begin taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 this week prior to its official release after the weekend.
KT will accept pre-orders for Samsung's latest smartphone from this Wednesday to Sunday, the company said on Tuesday.
KT will at first offer the handset in black or white, and add pink models to its inventory later. Customers can receive the phone from Monday, earlier than the official release date.
The Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with a 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED screen. At 8.3 mm thick and weighing 168 g, it is thinner and lighter than its predecessor.
Customers who visit major retail stores run by KT can get their hands on both the Galaxy Note 3 and the so-called "Galaxy Gear" smartwatch, which was unveiled at a major trade show in Berlin this month, to see what all the fuss is about.
SK Telecom and LG Uplus will also start taking preorders for the Galaxy Note 3 this week.
