Kind of nice to see that they kept the same design as the international version with the home button being as a physical touch button. The new Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III will support 4G LTE network and 2GB RAM. For anything other than 3D gaming (which still seems pretty foreign to me with a phone form-factor), RAM is almost certain to be more useful than processing power from a future-proofing perspective.
Nice to see US carriers finally launching these phone that are basically like those in the rest of the world.
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III will be available in 16 GB and 32 GB models for $199.99 and $249.99 respectively with a new two-year customer agreement. Pre-orders will start from June 6th 2012
The Galaxy S III has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Watch a video while texting friends or surfing the Web at 4G LTE speeds with Pop Up Play. Videos can be played in a small window while customers use the rest of the display to complete other tasks such as typing emails, organizing calendars and updating their social networks. Multi-tasking is seamless with the 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB RAM paired with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. Customers can also interact with the Galaxy S III in simple and fun ways thanks to Motion Gesture. With Motion Gesture, customers can initiate a phone call from a text message by simply raising the phone to their head, or they can pause a video by covering the display with their hand, and even get to the top of an email message and contact list.
