Samsung Announces The Galaxy S III Smartphone To Launch With Wait For It… Android 4.1 Loaded Out Of The Box


The citizens of Singapore will now be able to have a device the rest of the world doesn’t for now– a Jelly Bean-powered Samsung Galaxy S III LTE smartphone. That’s right friends, Samsung is currently getting ready for the launch of the device by the end of September. Even more exciting is the fact this version of the smartphone will feature a quad-core Exynos processor instead of the dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip, while also featuring a whopping 2GB of RAM. Customers in Singapore can expect to pay around S$998 (US $801.86) for the newly launched device.

Oh and Samsung Singapore also took some time to make owners of the existing Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone happy too as it confirmed the existing smartphone will get the Jelly Bean update sometime in the near-future. Considering there are multiple leaks of the Jelly Bean build out there at this time, we suspect the update is due out for arrival soon— very soon.
