The U.S. consumers on five major service providers will now be able to own Samsung Galaxy S III, which is optimized for peak performance on the 4G LTE and HSPA+ 42 networks.
It will be launching with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular starting in June. Exact pricing and retail availability will be announced by each of the five carriers in the coming weeks, according to Samsung.
“The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated launch of the year. As promised, we are delivering the ‘next big thing’ for U.S. customers and across all major carriers,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. “Galaxy S III introduces new technological innovation and takes sharing to the next level.”
With the Galaxy S III, Samsung says it is setting a new standard for smartphones. This device was designed to be lightweight, durable and powerful.
The Galaxy S III weighs 4.7 ounces and is 8.6 millimeters thin, making it lighter and sleeker than other leading smartphones, including several competitor models with smaller displays, Samsung claims.
The 4.8 inch display extends to an ultra-thin bezel to maximize the viewing area. The Galaxy S III delivers impressive processing power to allow more applications to be accessible simultaneously, according to Samsung.
The company says that Galaxy S III goes far beyond content consumption to content sharing, as Samsung has simplified how consumers share content and control the device with a single touch, through enhanced gesture technology or the simple movement of the eyes. The announcement was made today, June 4.
