U.S. Cellular has confirmed the pricing for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III which will be hitting its 4G LTE network in July.
The carrier has informed us that it will be selling both the 16GB and 32GB models and it will be doing so with price tags that match up with its rivals.
U.S. Cellular will be selling the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III for $199.99 on-contract while the carrier will sell the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S III for $249.99 on-contract.
Unfortunately, those prices will be coming after a mail-in rebate which means customers will have to pay quite a bit upfront to get those devices.
The carrier has also told us that the pre-order date for the Galaxy S III will start on June 12th. It has yet to give the device an official release date however only saying that the device will be released next month.
U.S. Cellular’s Galaxy S III will feature a 1.5GHz dual-core processor to go along with a massive 2GB of RAM. It’ll also arrive with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface.
Unlike the four bigger American carriers, U.S. Cellular is only available in certain areas.
U.S. Cellular’s 4G LTE network is currently available in markets in Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin.
However, the carrier has announced a massive expansion that is set to take place in the second half of 2012 that will bring its high-speed 4G LTE network to markets in Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.
The Samsung Galaxy S III will also be headed to the other four major U.S. carriers in AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon and those carriers will be seeing the device land in June and not July.
