The LTE-packing Samsung Galaxy S III for the Korean market has been officially announced. Unlike its USsiblings, this one uses a quad-core Exynos chipset rather than a Qualcomm Snapdragon.
As expected, the phone is a bit thicker than the international Galaxy S III - measuring 9mm thick (compared to 8.6mm). It's chock full of wireless connectivity though - GSM, WCDMA, CDMA (for the LG+ carrier only) and LTE, plus NFC, T-DMB television and of course Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.
It will run Android 4.0 ICS at launch with the brand new Nature UX in tow. The Korean Samsung Galaxy S III is powered by a quad-core Exynos with 2GB of RAM and features 32GB of built-in storage (expandable with microSD cards). The battery remains unchanged with 2100mAh capacity.
The Samsung flagship droid will launch on its home turf next Monday, July 9, on the three major carriers SKT, KT and LG+. A non-LTE version of the Galaxy S III is already on sale in Korea.
