NTT DoCoMo's Samsung Galaxy S III ships with 2GB of RAM, Qualcomm's dual-core processor

Just when we thought LG is the only handset maker with a smartphone that rocks 2GB of RAM, NTT DoCoMo and Samsung unveiled a version of the Galaxy S III (SC-06D) with the same amount of RAM. Set to hit Japan sometime “this summer,” this particular device will also ship with Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, rather than Samsung’s quad-core one. So we’re wondering – is that extra gig of RAM there to make things run smoothly on a dual-core processor? Two cores are not good enough for the proper Galaxy S III experience?

We’re not sure, but as far as we’ve understood the version U.S. carriers will be offering also rocks Snapdragon S4 CPU, while boasting “only” 1GB of RAM. Things are getting pretty confusing here.

I love the idea of getting more of everything under the hood of my smartphone and would like to see Samsung putting 2 gigs of RAM as standard for its flagship device. After all, it is the best phone in their portfolio, right?
