The credibility of June 20th being the big day for the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy SIII got a boost with its unveiling in Australia on Thursday May 31st.
Samsung Galaxy SIII, already nicknamed the ‘super-phone’ and the ‘mother of all smartphones’ by enthusiasts and reviewers has already hit Europe, most parts of Asia and lately Australia. Samsung has also confirmed that shipping to Canada will begin on June 20th but Americans are still in the dark regarding when to expect the SIII.
There have been a lot of speculations saying the SIII will be launched in the US the same day as Canada – one rumor even claimed that T-Mobile would be the first carrier to distribute Samsung’s new flagship Android Smartphone.
The main reason so many fanatics and geeks are anticipating the SIII is because it is a powerful and fully-featured Android phone whose speeds and capabilities are comparable to laptops, tablets and even desktop computers. The smartphone is expected to boast of a 2GB RAM, 1.5 GHz. Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android 4.0 ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ OS and a 4.8 Inch HD Super AMOLED 720×1280 pixel 306 ppi screen.
During the Vodafone launch of the Samsung Galaxy SIII in ‘the land down under’ on Thursday. One of the carrier’s officials hinted on June 20th as the next stop for the SIII’s nationwide US tour to start in New York. Although there is no way to confirm what the ‘official’ was talking about, there can be only two possible conclusions. The SIII will either enjoy a special unveiling in New York in about three weeks from now and after a short while hit the shelves or it will be presented to the public during unveiling. There is also a possibility that the ‘official’s’ hint may have been a mistake but one thing we can be sure of is that the SIII’s unveiling in the US cannot be far from now.
Some major questions to be answered besides the unveiling date though still remain unanswered, even by rumors. Last year, during the release of the SII, carriers had exclusivity period (S2 and Sprint), will carriers have the same exclusivity? Will the US version of the 4G LTE SIII come with 2GB RAM as it did Japan? Will the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models be available in both blue and white colors?
The answers to all these questions, and especially the release date, are bound to be leaked in coming weeks if not days, keep checking to stay updated. Be sure to check the Samsung Galaxy SIII review and more news here.
