Ma Bell has announced that it will be offering the AT&T Galaxy S III starting at $199 with preorders for the new Samsung flagship smartphone opening on Wednesday, June 6.

This is the same date preorders for the Verizon Galaxy S III will start. And while the Verizon variant will offer 2GB in RAM, the AT&T Galaxy S III will be offered in an exclusive color to the second-largest mobile carrier in the U.S. by subscribers.

The company has revealed that in addition to the Pebble Blue and Marble White variants of the Galaxy S III, the AT&T Galaxy S III will also be offered in red.

Both of the versions going to AT&T and Verizon will, however, feature dual-core 1.5GHz QUALCOMM S4 Snapdragon processors compared to the quad-core 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4212 processor of the international version of the Galaxy S III.

According to AT&T, the AT&T Galaxy S III will start at $199.99 with a new two-year contract for the 16GB version.

And while Verizon has explicitly said that they will offer a 32GB version of the new Samsung smartphone, AT&T is touting an add-on purchase of a 16GB microSD card which the AT&T Galaxy S III can accommodate via its microSD slot.

“AT&T stores will also feature a 16 GB MicroSD card at a low price of $39 for a total of 32 GB for under $238.99,” AT&T said in a press release.

“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 AT&T’s Jeff Bradley said in a statement.

“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,” the AT&T Mobility Devices division senior vice president added.

AT&T did not say how much RAM their Galaxy S III is getting but they did mention all of the features boasted by Samsung during the launch of the Galaxy S III in London last month. This includes the hardware specifications as well as the software features announced for the Galaxy S III.

Furthermore, the company did not mention any specific name for the AT&T Galaxy S III. It sold three variants of the predecessor of the Galaxy S II, namely the AT&T Samsung Attain, the AT&T Samsung Skyrocket, and the AT&T Samsung Skyrocket HD.

AT&T has also stressed that the AT&T Galaxy S III will take advantage of the network’s LTE and HSPA+ networks which now cover over 260 million people in the U.S.
