South Korean manufacturer Samsung is definitely having big plans for releasing the Samsung Galaxy S III handset in the North American smartphone market. Unlike the Galaxy S II, this time the manufacturer is bringing the Galaxy S III handset to the 4 major carrier in the U.S. Samsung has yet to offer any confirmation about the the U.S. release details of the GSIII handset on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and other carriers in the United States. We are hearing that the device is heading to the U.S carriers with a different hardware configuration (not same as the global edition).
It has been unofficially confirmed that the Galaxy S III handset is releasing on AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Both the AT&T and T-Mobile editions of the Samsung Galaxy S III have been approved by Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). AT&T’s version is bearing the model number SGH-I747M, while T-Mobile’s version has got SGH-T999V. Both these corresponding model numbers have already been confirmed by first photo shots (courtesy of PocketNow) of the supposed GSIII variants of AT&T and T-Mobile.
Rumor has it that the U.S. variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III handset will have Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood (Exynos 4212 Quad chipset for global variant) and 2GB RAM could accompany the device to help keep things running. Japan based NTT DoCoMo’s GSIII has been officially confirmed to ship with 2GB RAM. Other specs are including 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display with PenTile matrix, 8MP camera, Android 4.0 ICS OS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a set of Samsung-made exclusive preinstalled apps.
