Today is officially Samsung Galaxy SIII day, well, for those of you that live in the UK, France, the Middle East, Africa and some other 28 countries, not including the United States. As one of the most hyped and talked about Android phones quite possibly ever, the GS3 has a lot to live up to. With its 4.8″ HD screen, quad-core processor, long lasting battery, feature-packed version of TouchWiz, and ultra-fast camera, it looks like it may be capable of it.
But what about the U.S., when will it launch here? We had heard June as possibility during the unveiling event for the device and an Samsung VP has echoed that this morning to Pocket-Lint saying, “Unlike previous product launches, the time lag will be much more compressed for the Galaxy S III. So I think it will be available more or less globally within a month of the European release.” The press (roughly translated) is on board with that idea, mentioning that Samsung expects to be in 145 countries and on 296 carriers by July.
We went hands-on with both the blue and white versions while at CTIA, so be sure to check that out and think about whether or not this device will be a part of your future.
