A few days ago, we were still wondering about Samsung Galaxy S3 US Release Date. Today we found the following article from Android Authority confirming at least one pre-order date from one US carrier.
Well, that did not take ltoo ong! After Samsung confirmed today that the U.S. Galaxy S3 definitely will hit five carriers in June, Verizon issued its own press release to announce the start of Galaxy S3 pre-orders.
Galaxy S3 buyers interested in getting the handset from “America’s largest 4G LTE network” will be able to pre-order the device starting with June 6 at 7 AM by going tohttp://www.verizonwireless.com/galaxys3. Verizon will sell two Galaxy S3 versions, the 16GB and the 32GM models, priced at $199.99 and $249.99 respectively. Naturally, these are subsidized prices which require a new two-year contract. Furthermore, Galaxy S3 buyers will also have to subscribe to a 4G LTE mobile broadband data plan starting at $30 per month, which will give them 2GB of monthly data allowance.
What Verizon failed to mention in the press release is the actual launch date of the device. Sprint will hold a special Samsung Galaxy launch event on June 12, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see the Verizon Galaxy S3 version hit stores around the same time.
Also earlier today we saw some leaked image of the Galaxy S3, which revealed that the carrier will sell the same handset version that’s currently available only in international markets. Those images are already confirmed by Verizon’s Galaxy S3 pre-order page (see image above). Curiously though, the same page also features the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 version.
However, the phone will suffer some internal modifications, as the U.S. Galaxy S3 will pack the 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with integrated LTE support instead of the 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor that equips the international model.
Other specs and features worth mentioning are the 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, Mobile Hotspot for up to 10 devices, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with TouchWiz UI on top and some interesting perks including Smart Stay, S Voice or AllShare Play.
