The recently announced Samsung Galaxy S III has one of the best known smartphone specs, and it can give you a lot of processing power. The phone has a quad core Snapdragon processor in the 3G version of the phone and comes with a dual core S4 Snapdragon processor in the 4G LTE version. Along with this, there is an awesome 4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD display and a massive 1 GB of RAM. The smart phone is also offered in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB variants. But these specs are going to change a little bit when the phone is being shipped to Japan.
The Japanese version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is going to get a massive upgrade of 1 GB of RAM, making a total of 2 GB of RAM. Yes, this is awesome and it should be made a standard, I know and I agree to that. But unfortunately, this is not happening, and we can not make it happen as well.
The Japanese variant of the GS III also runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 ‘Krait’ dual-core SoC, which is compatible with Japan’s NTT Docomo 4G LTE network. The inclusion of the additional RAM is likely to help support Japan-only features such as 1 seg TV tuner without bogging down overall system performance.
While it is unlikely that other markets will be inline for the 1GB RAM upgrade, the Galaxy S III will have more than enough power for users. Like the HTC One X, which is offered with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor on 3G networks and the same dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor for 4G LTE networks, the Galaxy S III follows suit. However, the Samsung 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 quad-core processor fitted to the Galaxy S III 3G variant has been shown to outpace the Tegra 3, giving it a performance edge.
So if you are in Japan and are waiting to buy the new Samsung Galaxy S III, then you are in luck, because you are literally getting the best specked version of the phone in the whole world.
