Galaxy S III, Samsung’s latest flagship Android-based mobile phone, is set to make an official appearance on shelves at AT&T in the United States in the coming weeks, providing users with great connectivity features, as well as with an enhanced Android experience.
The carrier is set to launch two flavors of the mobile phone
, one with 16GB of internal memory, and another with 32GB of storage, both available in two different color flavors, namely Blue and White.
For new customers, the handset will go for $199 with the signing of a two-year contract, the carrier already announced. However, it seems that upgraders will be able to grab it for a bit less straight from the start.
Both Amazon Wireless
are currently listing the handset for only $149.99 for existing AT&T customers interested in grabbing the device while extending their contract for another two years.
Only the 16GB flavor of the device is included in this deal, but it still seems appealing, especially to those who want a new smartphone and have eyed this behemoth.
The smartphone arrives on shelves with a large 4.8-inch HD touchscreen display, complemented by a dual-core 1.5GHz application processor and 2GB of RAM, and with a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of additional storage space.
Unfortunately, the handset
won’t provide users with 50GB of free Dropbox storage as in Europe or at other wireless carriers in the US, but there will still be plenty of room for all those photos, videos and songs if a memory card is added.
Galaxy S III will also arrive with support for AT&T’s 4G LTE network, as well as with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, and Mobile Hotspot to share the connection with more devices.
On the back, it sports an 8-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash and support for full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.9MP front camera for making video calls.
