Coming sooner then you think


Recommended Posts



Well folks, it's official. In a press release sent out just moments ago, Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy SIII, easily one of the most anticipated smartphones this year, will be available on five major carriers in the US beginning this month.

The carriers, which are expected to make individual announcements in the "coming weeks," include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, and US Cellular. And yes, the SIII's design will be consistent across all carriers. Feast your eyes on some official (non-carrier specific) press images below:

For those wondering, some of the rumors we've heard about the US' Galaxy SIII are indeed true. The device will indeed feature

2GB internal RAM, a Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor at 1.5GHz, and (unsurprisingly), a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass 2, and a 2100mAh battery. The device will feature either 16 or 32GB onboard storage, expandable via microSD. As expected, the SIII will also connect to 4G LTE and HSPA+ 42 networks, depending on your carrier.

According to the release, the Galaxy SIII will start at $199 (presumably with new activation or eligible upgrade), but definite prices and release dates remain to be seen in future announcements by each carrier. We do know, however, that both "pebble blue" and "marble white" varieties will be available.

Those who want to be the first to get new information regarding the SIII's availability can already sign up at

AT&T's website. Other carriers will undoubtedly up their own signup pages soon.
