Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III have begun at T-Mobile UK just days ahead of the device’s highly anticipated May 29th release date.
The carrier isn’t the first to start taking pre-orders for the device but those currently on T-Mobile and those wishing to go the Magenta route will certainly appreciate the fact that the carrier is now taking them.
Pricing for the Galaxy S III ranges from £10.50 per month which will require customers to pony up £300 right off the bat to £41 with the signing of a new two-year contract with the carrier.
Sadly, it looks like those who pre-order the device now through T-Mobile won’t be getting the device on May 29th and instead will likely be getting after May 30th.
The Samsung Galaxy S III will be launching on a host of other carriers this month. Other carriers that will play host to the device include O2, Orange, Three, and Vodafone.
So, those in the UK have options.
As for a release in the United States, the device is still slated to touch down sometime in June but carriers have not yet confirmed the device.
While T-Mobile’s version of the device may sport the Exynos quad-core processor found in the UK model, the versions headed to AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will likely feature a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor due to the fact that the device will be 4G LTE in nature.
That should be the only difference between the two devices.
The Galaxy S III replaces the highly popular Galaxy S II and features a spacious 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, an impressive 8MP camera with loads of features, a massive 2100mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.
