AT&T is the latest wireless carrier in the United States to announce official details regarding the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone on its network.
The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset should arrive at AT&T this summer in the usual Blue and White versions, accompanied by an exclusive Red version, the operator announced.
Starting with June 6th, AT&T’s customers will be able to pre-order the Galaxy S III
for $199.99 (160 Euro). Only the 16GB version of the handset will be available, but users will have the option of purchasing a 16GB MicroSD card for only $39.
AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S III will arrive on the market with support for both LTE and HSPA+ 4G connectivity, providing access to fast data speeds on networks that cover more than 260 million people in the US.
“The addition of the Samsung Galaxy S III to our portfolio of 4G-LTE devices gives our customers another truly cutting-edge smartphone to choose from,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility.
“With an exclusive red color this summer and the power of the nation’s largest 4G network, AT&T delivers the best wireless experience for Galaxy S III fans.”
Galaxy S III arrives with top-of-the-line technology packed inside, including a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display on the front, which is surrounded by a thin bezel.
Moreover, the smartphone
includes a 1.5 GHz dual-core application processor inside, which should offer great performance capabilities, in addition to supporting the aforementioned fast connectivity options.
Galaxy S III also arrives on shelves with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording, and with a 1.9MP camera on the front, which should offer a great experience when making video calls.
The handset offers support for a series of appealing services and features, such as Samsung’s AllShare Play, Group Cast and Share Shot functions, or S-Beam for easy transfer of large files.
“SVoice features natural language recognition to allow customers to control applications and services with words instead of touch. The Galaxy S III also includes simple to use camera features like Best Shot to choose the best image from a series when taking a photo,” AT&T notes.
