Galaxy S III, the latest flagship Android device from Samsung, is set to arrive on shelves in the United States on the networks of five wireless carriers, Samsung confirmed today.
Verizon will be one of the operators to add the new device to its offering, and it should provide users with specific info on the phone’s arrival in the next few weeks.
Before that, however, we can have a look at what appears to be the specific flavor of the handset to make it to Verizon’s network, courtesy of leaked photos that emerged over at Android Police
The Android smartphone should arrive in the country with only a few design changes when compared to the international version, and the leaked photos appear to confirm that.
The front button seems untouched, as well as the phone’s physical shape, just as Samsung suggested.
However, what’s interesting to note is that Verizon’s logo is present on the back case, and not on the front of the device, as we were expecting.
Galaxy S III will land on Verizon’s shelves with support for the wireless carrier’s 4G LTE network, but it will also be able to connect to its 3G infrastructure. The phone
’s specifications should remain the same as those unveiled by Samsung in its official announcement regarding Galaxy S III’s launch in the US, though we should also see a series of customizations from Verizon.
Most of these would probably translate into pre-loaded applications and services, just as with other Android devices before this one.
However, users will still be able to benefit from the great viewing experience that Galaxy S III’s large 4.8-inch touchscreen display will have to offer, as well as from the performance capabilities of its 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor.
The US flavor of Galaxy S III also sports 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB internal memory, an 8MP camera on the back, front camera for video calling, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS receiver, and the whole range of sensors.
