AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 price and release date disclosed

Although the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 is arriving later than T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s versions of the phone, users in the US will not have to wait any longer to grab the former. It is all set to make its appearance on July 6 at the service provider’s retail stores as well as the website, reports the official AT&T consumer blog.

While it was announced in the US a while ago, the supposed overwhelming demand of the handset across the world forced its manufacturers to delay the shipping date. And the US was certainly not the only country to bear the brunt of this shortage, as shipments were postponed in some other countries including Canada and the UK. The red colored Galaxy S3 from AT&T is also on the cards, but there doesn’t seem to be an option to purchase the same.

“As a product manager, I’ve been fortunate to be able to work on the Galaxy S III since the early concepts and am very pleased with the results. It’s amazing to see how the Galaxy S series has evolved. Not only is this a gorgeous device that feels good in the hand, but the features Samsung has introduced really make it simple to use,” stated Kari Tillman through a post on the official AT&T consumer blog.

The US-bound Samsung Galaxy S3 has ditched the quad core Exynos processor for the 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset, which is accompanied by 2GB RAM. Its Ice Cream Sandwich platform is tweaked with the latest version of the TouchWiz UI and the handset flaunts a 4.8-inch diagonal Super AMOLED multi-touch display. An 8MP primary camera and a 1.9MP front-mounted webcam have also been added to the mix.

The 16GB AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 price and release date stand at $199.99 and July 6, respectively.
