Update: Sprint has also confirmed Samsung Galaxy S3 details, offering a 16GB version for $199.99 and 32GB for $249.99 (excluding taxes). Customers can pre-order the SGS3 beginning Tuesday, June 5 with the smartphone being rolled out on June 21. Sprint will be the only network to offer an unlimited data plan – starting from $79.99 a month – with Google Wallet preloaded too.
Earlier today we reported that Samsung had confirmed the Galaxy S3 will launch with 5 US carriers this month, and Verizon Wireless was the first carrier to officially announce details this morning, followed shortly after by T-Mobile.
Verizon is the largest mobile network in the US, with more than 108.7m subscribers, and news that the much-hyped Galaxy S3 will be available online for pre-order on June 6 (7 am ET) will be welcomed by fans of the Galaxy range. It will be launched in Verizon Wireless Stores and online in following weeks, though no specific date was given.
The Samsung Galaxy S III will be available in 16 GB and 32 GB models for $199.99 and $249.99 respectively, with a two-year subscription required to a 4G LTE mobile broadband data package, which starts at $30 a month for 2 GB of data. Customers will have the choice of Marble White or Pebble Blue. To register your interest, you can visit Verizon’s SGS3 landing page here.
Meanwhile, T-Mobile customers will be able to get their hands on the SGS3 from June 21, though it hasn’t announced any pricing plans for the device as of yet. You can sign-up to be ‘reminded’ here.
