Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular will all receive variations of the Galaxy S III this month, but Samsung isn't sharing the exact pricing and release date for each carrier just yet. What we do know is that $200 is the lowest price of the bunch.
What's incredibly interesting (and what CNET had predicted) is that the U.S.-based version, like its HTC One X rival, will carry a 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor as opposed to the 1.4GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor that's used in the global release.
The "downgrade" is likely due to a current incompatibility between thequad-core chip and LTE data networks
, just as with the HTC One X, which forewent the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor that was used in the global version of its hero device.
Looks to be a hot phone...
