It’s no secret that the Samsung Galaxy S III is headed to the US, where it should be available starting June.
However, no US mobile operator has confirmed that it would offer the new high-end Android ICS handset. Still, it looks like all four major carriers will have it eventually.
Just a few days ago, the Bluetooth SIG approved two Galaxy S III models made for North America: SGH-I747, and SGH-T999. According to Amazon, the SGH-I747 is AT&T’s version of the new Galaxy. This is seemingly confirmed by PocketNow, too, which also says the SGH-T999 is T-Mobile’s S III.
Most probably, neither the AT&T version, nor the T-Mobile one will look like what we’re seeing on their Bluetooth SIG pages. That’s just an image of the generic Galaxy S III.
We should expect the features of the SGH-I747 and SGH-T999 to be similar to the ones the European Galaxy S III is offering – except for the processor, which will be a dual-core Snapdragon S4, instead of Samsung’s quad-core Exynos. Also, AT&T’s Galaxy S III will surely have LTE connectivity. And perhaps we’ll see 2GB of RAM, too, like in Japan, who know? We’ll bring more details on the two handsets as soon as new info is unveiled.
