This is the actual symbol. I just didn't want to take the time to go through the character map to find it since it isn't on the keyboard itself... ≠ (not equal to)

I read that Sprint will carry the 16GB, dual core version of the S3.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

i read that a canadian carrier is taking pre orders for the s3 quad core with LTE.  if that is true, than there is no reason the u.s won't get it.

I have ssen a lot of people say the u.s s3 LTE will be dual core.  But we just don't know until it is officially announced. i hope the canadian rumor is true. i do know they have an s2 hd lte version.  that would have sold well in the u.s.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

I read a rumor about sprint offering the Galaxy S3 sometime in June 2012. Here is the link for anyone interested in reading it. http://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-sph-l710-aka-sprints-samsung-galaxy-s3-spotted-83930/

Of course this is just a rumor and I usually don’t get caught up enough in rumors to start a discussion of them however, this one was intriguing in the fact that it made this particular claim; The LTE dual-core version is reserved for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon – while the LTE quad-core version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to run on T-Mobile. Someone please enlighten me if I am wrong but from what I understand the reason the U.S. version of the Galaxy S3 will not be equipped with the quad core processor (another rumor) is it’s incompatibility in the U.S. version of 4G LTE. If this is true than, the rumor makes no since at all because T-Mobile doesn’t offer 4G LTE as of now.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

So from what I read (speculation) Is that those who are impatient can buy an unlocked version (GSM) of Galaxy S3 in June...the catch? Won't work on 4G LTE so pretty much being on 3G network only...period......So pretty much Those only AT&T and T-Mobile would be able to do this...

As for US version of the phone amongst the carriers....seems might be delayed

Something about the 4G Chips Samsung is using in the Galaxy S3 is the same as the one will be in Apple's iPhone 5.

So possibly have to use an alternative supplier for the Chips...

I don't if it's true but if it is how does Apple seem to have it's hand on everything?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

Thanks for the spec comparison RPING02. I for one can't wait for the SIII to come out. At first I was going to get the new EVO but the SIII really impressed me. Can't wait for it to come to Sprint. Hopefully Sprint won't mess with the design like the new EVO.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

Hey iLisper, I heard the same thing about the T-mobile version being quad core but that is because the phone won't be a 4G phone due to its incompatibility with its HSPA+ network. I don't have the link, sorry, I forgot the source. So I guess their consolation prize is a quad versus dual core phone. What sucks for us on Sprint in the non LTE areas is that we will have a 3G dual core phone. And if you all have noticed, Sprint's 3G network has been atrocious lately (at least in LA).

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

another rumor in the mill is that japan is getting the s3 with the 1.5ghz dual core and lte, but they are also getting 2 gigs of ram instead of 1.  i'll be very happy if the u.s/sprint version has the same thing.  hopefully the increased ram doesn't drain the battery.

and if sprint can speed up their roll out of the lte network...the s3 will be tough to beat by anyone.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

First, Your welcome ASM3.

Just saw this: "The Bluetooth SIG is the board which approves Bluetooth radio applications.  The organization’s latest listing indicates that Sprint will also be offering Samsung’s new smartphone.  Such listings won’t tell us anything either about release dates – so far, most are hoping the Galaxy S3 will be out sometime in June, but neither Samsung nor the Big Four US carriers have confirmed anything."


The quote is from the "Eastern Morning Herald".  (See link): http://easternmorningherald.com/sprint-carry-samsung-galaxy-s3/126251/

Hopefully, this is a step closer.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

HTC's poor decision to follow apple's lead by embedding the battery (non-removable) makes Samsung the clear choice for me. Expect the Galaxy SIII in the USA before London Olympics - just in time for my 7-11-12 renewal date. And, SD card slot holds up to 64gb. I like it!!
