Australia: Samsung Galaxy SIII 4G coming to Telstra.
“The Australian market continues to demonstrate a diverse set of consumer needs and we are committed to responding to this with a wide portfolio of products. Following the recent success of the Samsung GALAXY S III, the addition of the 4G powered GALAXY S III Onyx Black and Titanium Gray is part of our ongoing commitment to leading the charge in technology innovation and choice,” said Tyler McGee, vice president telecommunications, Samsung Electronics Australia.
The carrier has confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S III 4G will be available for purchase starting October.
Customers will be able to choose from two color options, Onyx Black and Titanium Gray.
Unlike the international version, the Australian variant comes with 2GB of RAM and LTE support, along with 16GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB).
With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
The device will be equipped with a quad-core Exynos processor inside. It will also boast a stunning 4.8-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, which features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
The same 8-megapixel photo snapper will be included on the back side of the phone, while on the front the smartphone packs a 1.9-megapixel secondary camera for self-portraits and video calls.
If you pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S3 4G on Optus before September 17, the carrier said that the phone will be shipped out on September 20. The service plan on Optus starts from as little as $30 (200MB data allowance) to $80 (2GB data allowance) per month with a two year contract.
Meanwhile, the 4G phone will only be available on Telstra in October, though no specific date has been given. You can register yourself on the carrier’s website to get timely updates of the phone’s availability. As for the price of the Galaxy S3 4G there, Telstra hasn’t provided any details either.
