It’s impossible for us to count how many variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II hit the market last year. There was the international version, of course. Each of the major operators in the United States had their own respective versions. And there was even a Galaxy S II with a 720p screen that was supposed to hit AT&T, but then it got cancelled. Said device still ended up in Canada somehow. Anyway, it’s starting to look like the same thing is going to happen to the Galaxy S III. The European and Asian variants have a 1.4 GHz quad core Exynos processor paired up with 1 GB of RAM. The American variant uses a 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, and to make up for that it gets 2 GB of RAM. But what’s the ultimate Galaxy S III? This shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s the one that’s going to hit Samsung’s home country of Korea next month.
That beast is going to have the quad core processor that’s in the European Galaxy S III, it’ll have the 2 GB of RAM that’s in the American Galaxy S III, and it’ll also have 4G LTE connectivity. But wait, there’s more! Want to watch live television? DMB is in the Korean Galaxy S III as well. Will this unicorn of a smartphone ever leave Korea? Probably not, but that’s OK since it’s probably overkill for most people. And hey, if you’re really an impatient son of a bitch, then we’re pretty sure that an importer like Expansys or Negri will take care of you.
So what’s the next “superphone” going to be? Seeing as how there’s still half a year left before we hit 2013, we’re looking at a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device in September, the Galaxy Note II and iPhone 5 in October, and the next Nexus in November.
