Sprint will start taking preorders June 5th. Â Price for the 16GB version is $199 and $249 for the 32GB version (available in Pebble Blue also known as Metallic Blue or Marble White).Â Verizon Wireless will be taking preorders on June 6th but has not announced an official release date. AT&T will be taking preorders on June 6th. They will offer an exclusive Red version of the phone later on this summer.
Unlike past Samsung Galaxy phones that were tweaked for each carrier; the Samsung Galaxy S III will be the same across all carriers (like the Apple iPhone).
Unfortunately, the US version of the Â Samsung Galaxy S III has a dual-core Snapdragon processor instead of the quad-core processor that the international version houses. It will run on the 4G LTE and HSPA+ networks. It has a huge 4.8 inch AMOLED screen (which looks beautiful) and an eight megapixel camera. It is also one of the few devices to have Corning Gorilla Glass 2.0; a stronger and thinner version of the gorilla glass current devices have.
I am excited for this release, but now I’m indecisive against waiting for the “iPhone 5″ or getting Samsung S III. Â I think I might be leaning toward the Samsung S III.
