Samsung Galaxy S3 Heading To Verizon With LTE Support And Snapdragon S4 CPU

On May 3rd, Samsung Galaxy S3 was officially unveiled in London and since then everybody is talking about it. The Europeans will be the first to get their hands on the flagship device, but it seems that the Americans will soon be able to purchase the Galaxy S3, soon.

The Samsung SCH-i535 device have been recently associated with Verizon, but when the device received the WiFi certification a couple of month ago, we all thought that it’s the Galaxy Nexus variant for the US market. The mysterious SCH-i535 smartphone have recently appeared in NenaMark benchmark tests, but the 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution is definitely dismissing the rumors saying that it can be a Galaxy Nexus variant (Google’s latest dev phone has a 1196 x 720 pixels display).

The 1,280 x 720 pixels coincides with the one of Samsung Galaxy S3′s 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, so the SCH-i535 that appeared in the NenaMark benchmarks could be the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3. Another interesting feat is the Adreno 225 GPU, which can only be found mounted on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 SoC.

The benchmark test results also showed that the terminal’s CPU is clocked at 1.5GHz and that the SCH-i535 terminal is running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. As you’ve probably guessed, Galaxy S3 will hit the States packing a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor because of the 4G LTE chip, just like it happened with the US version of another quad-core terminal, HTC One X.

The global version of Samsung Galaxy S3 version presented a few days ago features a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4212 chipset, 1 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal flash storage. The new Samsung flagship also packs a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and an 8 megapixel primary camera with autofocus, LED flash and 1080p video recording support.

Even though Samsung Galaxy S3′s specifications are similar to its Android-powered rival, HTC One X, the South Korean device comes with some awesome features like S Beam, S Voice, Smart Stay, Direct Call, Pop up Play and may other goodies.
