Earlier today, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy S III would be released by five US mobile carriers later this month. Now, two of them have announced the exact launch date for the handset, which is June 21.
The two carriers are Sprint and T-Mobile.
Sprint’s S III will feature LTE connectivity, Google Wallet, 2GB of RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 ICS, and everything else that’s found on the European edition (already available since late May). It will be offered in both white and blue, with two storage capacities: 16GB ($199.99 on contract), and 32GB ($249.99 on contract).
Pre-orders for Sprint’s Galaxy S III will begin tomorrow, June 5. The carrier has put up an official webpage for the handset here, but that’s not yet fully functional. Unfortunately, this means we don’t know what the handset looks like for now.
T-Mobile’s Galaxy S III will feature HSPA+ (42Mbps), 2GB of RAM, and the same 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Just like Sprint, T-Mobile will offer the new Galaxy in blue and white, with 16GB or 32GB storage capacities.
T-Mobile hasn’t announced pricing details for its S III (pictured above), but you can register for more info here.
Most probably, Verizon and AT&T will launch their Galaxy S III variants around June 21, too. We’ll keep you posted.
