Amazon selling Samsung Galaxy S III pre-orders
Consumers who would like to be amid the first in the United States to own Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone at June 1 could pay an immerse price. Amazon now is taking United States Samsung Galaxy S III pre-orders for $800 unlocked, just the price tag isn’t the only matter you should be weary from.
Samsung and United States carriers are yet to foretell their versions from the Samsung Galaxy S III, which commonly vary from each other both externally and internally. So what you’ll be getting for 800 bucks is the SIM-free 16GB the Samsung Galaxy S III international version (blue or white), a.k.a. GT-i9300, with a big 4.8-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with much Samsung software goodies.
Even so, employing the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-i9300 at the United States means you will must accept a few compromises. The model doesn’t have 4G LTE connectivity, contrary to much current Android phones sold by carriers. Frankincense, the Samsung Galaxy S III can only link to HSPA+ network from AT&T. At T-Mobile the phone could be able to make calls, only will not be able to connect to fast data as the Samsung GT-i9300 lacks support to 1700MHz band from T-Mobile. Unnecessary to say, Samsung GT-i9300 will not work at Verizon and Sprint.
What you do get for the heavy $800 Samsung Galaxy S III price tag though is the 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. It is not known whether the CPU could make it to United States versions from the Samsung GT-i9300 ; there’s no 4G LTE version from the processor, so the carrier-customized Samsung Galaxy S IIIs are anticipated to use a dual-core chip as an alternative, like the Snapdragon S4, which bears LTE support.
So unless you do not mind not using AT&T’s network, having 4G LTE connectivity and you have $800 to dish out, the Samsung Galaxy S III should be with you in a few weeks. Just you would be fortunate holding off to the versions U.S. carrier-customized of the Samsung GT-i9300, which eventhough they will not have the same CPU, they’ll likely cost you leastways $500 less upfront with an agreement, and they can glare at 4G LTE speeds.
