Prices updated as of June 23rd
The upcoming 16 GB Samsung Galaxy S III will reportedly be priced at $230 on T-Mobile USA. This price will come with a Value Plan contract. However, a Classic Plan with a mail-in rebate of $50 will bring the price up to $280.
This price, if genuine, will be more expensive than the $200 price for which the same device will be sold on AT & T and Sprint. Moreover, Sprint has on offer the 32 GB flavor for $249.99.
Those on a T-Mobile Classic Plan, however, may just get an upgrade and purchase the device for $450. Meanwhile, a contract-free plan will cost $630, although users are cautioned that the device will remain locked to the carrier and cannot be used on others.
T-Mobile USA is releasing the Samsung handset this coming June 21st. This much-awaited phone has a quad-core 1.4GHz Cortex A9 processor running alongside a gigabyte of RAM. It also features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The S III is packed with 4G connectivity, Google Wallet, and NFC capability.
Samsung also throws in features like Smart Stay, which keeps the screen lit while it is in use; Direct Call, which automatically dials a contact’s number by bringing the phone close to the ear; and S Voice, which executes commands given through voice input. S Beam, meanwhile, transmits content from the phone to another S III unit by simply having the two devices in back-to-back position. Another feature called Best Photo instantly chooses what it deems the best shot out of a continuous set.
Stocks of the device are currently on limited supply because of the great demand for the smartphone. In fact, Sprint is deferring its release of the device for one of two days because both flavors, the 16 GB and 32 GB units of the device are now out of stock. As for AT&T, customers will need to wait for the stocks to arrive but they can already place pre-orders.
