Samsung Galaxy S III has 2GB of RAM in Japan (SC-06D model for DoCoMo)

When Samsung announced the Galaxy S III, it said that LTE versions of it would be released in the US, South Korea, and Japan sometime “this summer.” Today, the Japan-bound S III has been officially unveiled by NTT DoCoMo as the Samsung Galaxy S III SC-06D.

The SC-06D looks just like the Galaxy S III we’ve seen before, and even comes in the same color versions: blue, and white. There are two major hardware differences, though. Unlike the European S III (which has a quad-core Exynos processor, and 1GB of RAM), DoCoMo’s handset features a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and 2GB of RAM.

It’s a mystery to me why Samsung didn’t include 2GB of RAM in all its Galaxy S III models. It’s not like the production costs would have been significantly higher this way.

Anyway, the SC-06D isn’t the only S III model that will be released with a Snapdragon S4 processor. The smartphone’s US version will rely on Qualcomm’s chip, too.

The Galaxy S III SC-06D has been announced by NTT DoCoMo alongside lots of other Android 4.0 Ice Cream smartphones, including: Fujitsu F-09D ANTEPRIMA, Fujitsu ARROWS Me F-11D, Fujitsu ARROWS X F-10D, Sharp AQUOS PHONE SH-07D, Sharp AQUOS PHONE ZETA SH-09D, NEC MEDIAS X N-07D, Panasonic ELUGA V P-06D, Panasonic ELUGA power P-07D, Sony Xperia SX SO-05D, Sony Xperia GX SO-04D, LG Optimus Vu L-06D, and Toshiba REGZA Phone T-02D. All these will be released by the largest Japanese mobile carrier this summer.
