While the Samsung Galaxy S III release date in the United States remains at large, Samsung has gone ahead and confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S III release date in Europe as May 29th.
Samsung UK’s official Twitter account has disclosed the official release date meaning those in Europe will be able to, as expected, get their hands on Samsung’s latest smartphone during the month of May.
Pricing for the device remains unknown but at least two European carriers have confirmed that they will be carrying the device. Both Vodafone UK and O2 announced that they will play host to the Galaxy S III.
It’s unclear which other carriers will carry the smartphone but we can expect announcements to come over the next couple of weeks in the build-up to the launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S III launch in Europe will be a part of a 10 city world tour that the device embarks on over the next few weeks. Both New York and Tokyo will see the world tour and we expect that it will be there that Samsung makes the official release date of the 4G LTE Galaxy S III, the model that will be hitting the U.S. and Japan, known.
Samsung’s latest smartphone was announced today at its Unpacked event in London and the device boasts some features that should draw heavy interest from consumers.
The Galaxy S III features a lightweight, 8.6mm design, a spacious 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front camera, ”S Voice” voice recognition technology, face and gesture recognition, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2,100mAh battery.
The U.S. model, which will feature 4G LTE data speeds, will likely feature a dual-core processor rather than Samsung’s quad-core Exynos processor found in the European model.
