Samsung SPH-L710 might be Sprint’s Galaxy S III
When Samsung said its brand new Galaxy S III would be introduced in the US starting June, it didn’t mention any launch partners for it. However, it’s probably safe to assume that all four major US carriers want to have the handset. Of course, until something official comes out, we can’t be sure of anything. Still, it looks like Sprint’s version of the Galaxy S III has been spotted – not in a photo or in a video, but in a User Agent Profile.
PocketNow has it that the Galaxy S III for Sprint is the Samsung SPH-L710. If that’s true, the smartphone will come with Android 4.0.4 ICS, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 64GB), and a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (it’s not the first time we’re hearing the US editions of the S III won’t use Samsung’s quad-core Exynos processor). The rest of its features should be similar to what the European Galaxy S III is offering.
Naturally, the S III for Sprint will have LTE connectivity, possibly becoming the carrier’s fourth LTE smartphone (after the Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and HTC Evo 4G LTE).
