Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date Is July 9th In South Korea

While it’s been a while since the Samsung Galaxy S3 was released in Europe, North America and other parts of the world, it’s time for the Koreans to enjoy the new smartphone as well (after all Samsung is a company based in their own country).

The Korean version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is some kind of hybrid, a combination between the international version and the US one. The device will come packed with a quad-core Exynos processor (just like the international model), but it will also come with LTE support. And yes, Samsung finally announced a release date for the Galaxy S3 LTE, which is July 9th. The company specifies that the smartphone will be available at three carriers meaning SK Telekom, LG U+, and KT.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE features 2GB of RAM abd DMB TV tuning which is great, but unfortunately the battery will remain the same 2,100 mAH. Taking into consideration that the quad-core processors and LTE don’t “get along” so well, the battery life won’t be as long as it should. And it’s hard to believe that Samsung has quickly found a way to perfectly integrate quad-core CPUs with LTE. ¬†However, it’s not a big compromise to make, after all it’s the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a great device despite these minor issue.

If we compare the international version of the Galaxy S3 with the US model, many of the specs are quite the same. However, there are a few major differences due to the LTE technology existent in the United States. First of all, the international model sports a Exynos quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor while the US version packs a Snapdragon dual-core 1.5 GHz. In memory terms, the international version has 1GB of RAM while the North Americans enjoy 2 GB of RAM. Both models have Gorilla Glass screen protection and the same dimensions and weight.
