Samsung's Galaxy S III Will Launch On All Four Major Carriers Very Soon

Samsung announced this morning that it’s new flagship Android phone, the Galaxy S III, will be available on all four major carriers in the coming weeks. U.S. Cellular will also carry the phone.

Unlike the international version of the phone, the Galaxy S III will have 4G LTE data speeds. However, 4G isn’t available on all networks yet, so each carrier’s phone may have slightly different hardware.

So far, only Verizon and AT&T offer LTE. Sprint’s LTE network is expected to go live very soon. T-Mobile’s won’t be ready until next year.

But there is a drawback to LTE. It’s likely the U.S. model of the Galaxy S III won’t have the same insanely fast quad-core processor as the international version. (Samsung’s announcement left out that detail, so we’ll find out later.)

The Galaxy S III design will remain also consistent on all carriers. In previous Galaxy phone releases, Samsung changed up the hardware specs and design for each carrier.
