After South Korean company Samsung announced the availability of its latest and long-awaited smartphone of the Galaxy S series, Samsung Galaxy S3, in Europe, the Asian manufacturer finally announces its availability on the U.S. market. The latest version of the high-end smartphone will be available for purchase from five mobile operators starting this month.
Samsung has announced that it will launch the new device simultaneously from five mobile operators, including AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint, a decision that once again proves how eager the South Korean company wants to remain a leader on the global smartphones market.
Moreover, if we consider the fact that the Galaxy S2 was launched in the U.S. in September 2011, at a considerable distance from the launch in Europe, it’s clear that Samsung relies on the qualities offered by its new terminal in order to dethrone Apple’s iPhone.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available in several configurations, depending on the mobile operator, but some features will remain unchanged: 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 4.8-inch screen and internal storage capacity of 16GB or 32GB. In addition, major networks will equip the smartphone with 4G connectivity.
Samsung introduced the first phone of the Galaxy range in 2010, three years after the iPhone’s debut.
In the first three months of the year, Samsung sold 44.5 million smartphones, namely 21,000 units per hour.
The new unit will be available starting from this month at a price of $199.
