The Samsung Galaxy S III goes on sale in Europe next week, but when is the device coming to the US? David Beren of TmoNews just posted T-Mobile’s device roadmap for the next couple months and his sources say the device could launch as soon as June 20th.
Release dates are always subject to change, but it’s a good sign that the device could be scheduled to hit our shores less than a month after the international version. Last year with the Galaxy S II, some US carriers did not launch the device until six months later.
We are still waiting to learn which US carriers will carry the Galaxy S III, but rumors and speculation suggest it will be coming to the AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and possibly a couple regional carriers as well.
Additional rumored T-Mobile release dates include:
- Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Metallic Blue — June 20th
- Samsung Galaxy S III 32GB Metallic Blue — June 20th
- T-Mobile myTouch (Huawei Phoenix) — July 11th
- T-Mobile myTouch (Huawei Buddy) — July 11th
- Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Ceramic White — July 11th
- Samsung Galaxy Note — July 11th
I’m sure some readers will be glad to see the Galaxy Note is arriving on T-Mobile in July. This could be a signal that AT&T’s exclusive launch period is over, and we might see the unique device on additional carriers like Sprint or Verizon.
TmoNews is normally pretty accurate with their leaked device release dates, so hopefully we will be hearing some kind of official announcement soon. The T-Mobile Galaxy S III would be a perfect match with one of their pre-paid plans, don’t you think?
