After a disappointing week last week with Sprint, where the expected release date for the Samsung Galaxy S3 was not fulfilled, it has now been officially announced that the device will be released on the 1st July i.e. today. GCP reports that you will be able to get the 16GB version for $200 in stores, and the 32GB version for $250 online.
16GB Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 available in stores today
The Samsung Galaxy S3 itself will be worth the wait, with its 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and the ability to multitask to the extreme. It also has a quad-core Exynos processor (a dual core Snapdragon S4 chip in the US for LTE networks), 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, wireless charging, Smart Stay and much more.
While the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 does sound like the most powerful smartphone on the market right now, the Korean version of the device is set to be the most impressive, with the potential for an Exynos quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and LTE capabilities all bundled into one device (in the US all models remain with dual-core). Nevertheless, cores aside the Galaxy S3 still trumps other smartphones on the market right now and we wouldn’t hesitate pouncing on one.
Have a good weekend folks!
