T-Mobile is already selling its very own Samsung Galaxy S III variant, but it’s the only one of the ‘big four’ carriers in the US that doesn’t have an LTE network just yet. That will change though, as the magenta carrier will launch an LTE network in the coming months.
Obviously, none of the devices that TMo currently sells support LTE, so the carrier will have to bring out a whole slew of new smartphones that will be up to that task. Among them seems to be a Galaxy S III variant with LTE capabilities.
The Samsung SGH-T999L has been spotted getting certified by the Bluetooth SIG. Keeping in mind that TMo’s non-LTE Galaxy S III has the model number T999, it stands to reason that this would be the follow up to that, with full LTE support in tow.
Unfortunately though, there’s nothing to confirm this possibility yet. So all we can do is wait for new info (and rumors) to pop up regarding this matter. Or the T999L could make it to the FCC, where we’d definitively find out what its network support is.
In the meantime, all we can do is wonder whether this new Galaxy S III for T-Mobile, if real, will pack in some additional goodies aside from the LTE support, and what those may be.
