It might be something close to a miracle but fans of Samsung’s Galaxy line can grab the incoming Galaxy S III on any of the major U.S. carriers, all at once! After the carrier dictated GS II launch, one that had Verizon snubbing the Android powered beauty, Samsung has a much more unified release of the newest super phone. I don’t know how Sammy was able to get the five
families carriers to all agree to play nice but whatever it was, they get geek points for doing it!
Besides the damn near simultaneous launch, we’re hearing the actual hardware is going to stay consistent with each carrier. No more hoping and praying that slick case you saw on your buddy’s Sprint GSIII will fit your AT&T version! Take note folks, this is something Apple has always done better than Android. Pricing may vary between the different carriers but most are looking at staying with the $199 for the 16GB model on a two-year contract price point. There will also be a 32GB monster available for around $249 but that one looks to an online only option.
The already announced features are sticking around as well. Android 4.0, Smart Stay, S-Voice, S-Beam and TouchWiz will be standard across the board, everyone gets the same tasty toys. Hardware specs are also expected the stay the same – dual-core 1.5GHz processor, Gorilla Glass 2.0, beefy 2,100 mAh battery and 2GB of RAM. Color conscious geeks have their choice of body hues, Pebble Blue and Marble White.
Each of the carriers will begin pre-orders as soon as June 5th, U.S. Cellular is bringing up the rear with pre-orders going live on the 12th. AT&T hasn’t announced exact dates yet, they just have a preview page up. Get with it Ma Bell, you have customers! Hit the break to peep Samsung’s full presser and watch your fave carrier for your chance to get your own!
