Samsung Galaxy S3 release teased by MetroPCS
If you are over in the USA it appears that there might be another option for customers to grab the Samsung Galaxy S3 later in the year, as the latest rumour is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is coming to MetroPCS, because during an event in New York, MetroPCS apparently outlined their plans for the fall, including the release of the MetroPCS Galaxy S3 before the year is out.
According to an article over on The Verge by way of Phone Scoop, the MetroPCS version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is currently in the testing stage, but does plan on offering the latest Android handset from the Samsung camp ‘later in the year.’
During the event, MetroPCS showed off a rough sketch of four 4G enabled smartphones that the firm intends to deliver this year, and along with the Samsung Galaxy S3 shows another smaller Samsung handset that supports VoLTE , and looks like the Samsung Galaxy Mini.
Other handsets in the sketch include a ZTE smartphone sporting a 4.3-inch touch screen without any release schedule, and another device with a 4-inch touch screen called the Coolpad, that is said to possibly release sometime this week and command a price tag of 149-bucks.
Other than that, there isn’t a great deal of information on the devices, and there is no specific release dates mentioned other than later this year. However for those customers that are faithful to MetroPCS, you at least know the Samsung Galaxy S3 will indeed be coming to MetroPCS at some stage.
As for specs on the MetroPCS Galaxy S3, one can presume it will still sport all the specs as other Galaxy S3 handsets such as that 4.8-inch Super AMOLED touch screen, 8 megapixel auto-focus rear facing camera with LED flash, front facing camera, and 1.4GHz quad core processor and the rest.
