US Samsung Galaxy S3 May Skip Quad-Core But Get Another Surprise

By  | 

The Samsung Galaxy S3 finally debuted earlier this month and with it killed all rumors about the device. While we did see the 4.8-inch AMOLED display, quad-core processor and wireless charging, three other big rumors were shot down: the 12-megapixel camera, ceramic body and 2GB RAM. Now it looks like the latter has returned.

US Samsung Galaxy S3 models may get 2GB RAM

The intel comes via a recent announcement by Japanese carrier Docomo and Samsung that they too have swapped the quad-core processor in for a dual-core in order to make it compatible with Docomo’s LTE. In addition to that there is an added surprise, 2GB RAM.

Given that we will find a similar situation here in the US for Verizon, Sprint and AT&T with their LTE bands, there is a strong chance that some if not all these dual-core Samsung Galaxy S3 variants get 2GB RAM as well.

At this time Samsung states that the Samsung Galaxy S3 US release date will happen over summer. We’ll be keeping an eye out on any hints from carriers and update you accordingly. Have a good weekend folks!
