    In a press release sent out late Sunday night, Samsung has confirmed that their Galaxy SIII will arrive on U.S. carriers this month. The highly anticipated device will launch on five major U.S. carriers including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and U.S Cellular. Samsung also confirmed specifications of the U.S. variant, which include:

    - 2GB Internal Ram
    - Snapdragon S4 1.5Ghz Dual Core
    - 4.8" HD Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 2
    - 2100mAh battery
    - 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage expandable via microSD

    The U.S. Galaxy SIII will also include S-Beam, S-Voice, Smart Stay, Popup Play, and advanced camera features such as Burst Shot and Best Shot that were showcased on European variants. The phone is expected to cost $199 for new contracts and eligible upgrades, but solid pricing has yet to be announced by individual carriers. Check out Samsung's full press release here and let us know what you think in the forums.

    Current Phone Model:
    NEXUS 6
    Glad they're launching these earlier. Better then the GS & GS2 American launch which launched months after the original version.

    I would say get the s3 :)

    I formerly had two phones all the time and I hated it lol, however thinking about having a maxx and a s3 "just because" is so tempting. I just graduated however and don't have a job yet, BUT when i do have employment I could see myself needing a new "house phone" lolololol.

    Last two phones I picked up was on launch day (Thunderbolt and now the Galaxy Nexus) but I think my upgrade not being ready till 6/28 could be a good thing. It makes me wait till they get the blue one in.
