AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S III (SGH-I747) Gets Certified By the FCC


Still looking for some sort of evidence that the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III handset is close land in the U.S.? Ahead of a possible June launch in the U.S., the AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S III gets FCC certified and moves one step closer to launch. The device you see above is the Galaxy S III bearing an SGH-I747 model number, which recently passed through FCC labs with HSPA+ and LTE connectivity, which is compatible with AT&T. These bands are also compatible with Canada based wireless carriers like Rogers, Bell and Telus.

A few days ago, we also reported that T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S III (SGH-T999) have made a tour of the FCC‘s testing facilities with carrier’s AWS bands. An handset get FCC certified doesn’t necessarily mean that its launch is right around the corner, but an FCC filing is usually a good sign of what’s to come and the wait for the new Galaxy handset to arrive on U.S. shores won’t be too far away. Both the AT&T ad T-Mobile version of the GSIII handsets have also been approved by Bluetooth SIG.

AT&T’s Galaxy S III is expected to pack the same internals as the European GSIII, but it could be equipped with dual-core Snapdragon S 4 processor instead of the quad-core chipset. It will also ship preinstalled Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, a brand new TouchWiz user interface, 8MP rear camera, an exclusive S Voice app and more.

American carriers have yet to confirm their launch plans of Galaxy S III handset. Samsung mentioned the Galaxy S III will launch in the U.S. sometime in June. According to a leaked roadmap, T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy S III is expected to hit the stores on June 20th.
