NTT Docomo dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon Samsung Galaxy S3
The latest high end smartphone from the Samsung camp is of course the Samsung Galaxy S3, a device that is soon to release in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe, and of course heading to the USA at some point. Obviously Sammy will also be pushing the Galaxy S3 out in other countries across the globe, and one of those is Japan.
According to the guys over at GSM Arena, by way of Sammy Hub, the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be releasing on Japan’s NTT Docomo with a slight change when it comes to processor. The Japanese version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will apparently pack a 1.5GHz Snapdragon MSM8960 processor, just like that in the HTC One X.
Furthermore, the Japanese Samsung Galaxy S3 is apparently listed as having double the RAM at 2GB, and according to the guys the only other device they know has that amount of RAM is the LG Optimus LTE2. However the change in chipset does add a little thickness to the Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset, as it comes in at 9mm thick rather than 8.6mm, which isn’t that noticeable anyway.
When it comes to other specifications for the Japanese Galaxy S3, well they remain unchanged, and although the Japanese model isn’t that exciting, the guys suggest it does give hint at what old Sammy is preparing for the US version, where LTE is basically a much for high end devices, although thus far the company hasn’t delivered any specific specs for the US Galaxy S3 other than recent evidence pointing towards the Verizon version of the Android handset sporting the same processor as the Japanese version, which is said to be on par with the Exynos quad core processor.
