Pre-orders For The Samsung Galaxy S3 To Begin On June 6th In The US, Hitting The Shelves On June 21

Samsung Galaxy S3

There has been lots of hype around the Samsung Galaxy S3, successor to the highly successful Galaxy S2. Featuring a quad core processor and a huge, beautiful 4.8″ Super AMOLED display, and Ice Cream Sandwich, it’s the best that Samsung has on offer. Evidently, the consumers have been pretty excited about the device as well. Noting that, the top 5 carriers in the US are all going to have the Galaxy S3 on their shelves by 21st June.

The carriers include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular. All of them except T-Mobile and Sprint have released the pre-order dates, and it’s going to start on June 6th. I’ve gathered the pricing information and you’ll find it below –

  1. Verizon will offer the 16 GB version for $200, and the 32 GB version for $250. Of course, on a two year contract.
  2. AT&T will also offer the 16 GB version for $200, but they don’t have the 32 GB version (yet). Instead, you can get a 16 GB microSD card for $40. Grossly high.
  3. Sprint won’t be having any pre-orders, but they’ll offer the 16 GB and 32 GB versions for $200 and $250 respectively, from June 21st.
  4. US Cellular will also offer both the 16 GB and 32 GB variants, but they don’t have any pricing information yet, for us. I’ll update as soon as they release more information.
  5. That leaves T-Mobile. They haven’t revealed any pricing / pre-order information yet, which may push people waiting to get one to jump and grab one from AT&T/Verizon. It’s always a good idea to have more information available to the public when you’re trying to rise again.

So there you go. I’ll keep updating this post itself, rather than post individual, less on content posts, when more information becomes available.
