Not too many phones worth a new thread lately... this one should be...

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 the

quad-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...

Yep. Mine has a dual core at the same speed. I read it might only have 1GB of RAM still. Although Japan has a model with 2. I MIGHT get it if ATT gets the 2 gig model. Phone still runs out of memory on ICS pretty quick when browsing flash-based websites.

Sweet it's MicroSIM so I can use it here! I may have to look it up around here. Although it will cost me an arm and a leg though. =/

That sucks... I don't have ICS on my Rezound yet... not sure if the update is available or not, haven't looked. I'm happy with Gingerbread for now...

I've read some bad things about this phone. How many "iPhone-killers" is Samsung going to release?

Did it? I thought I read that the SII's total unit sales globally equaled that of the iPhone 4s over like a 2 month span.

My sister pre-ordered the GS3. I'm going to try it out and see if I like it.

Disappointed it's not quad core (Seriously fug LTE) but I might still get it for the extra system memory.
