This article from Ubergizmo seems to think that Samsung's official statement about the region locking is indication that it might be a software lock, and not necessarily hardware:

Samsung Responds To Galaxy Note 3 Region Locking | Ubergizmo

Still, I'm curious if the SIM card will even be readily accessible like the Photon was. The Photon Q's SIM card is covered up, so customers are forced to use Sprint's ridiculous roaming charges anyway.
