The Samsung Galaxy S III will be heading to providers and customers in Canada on June 20th. Most, if not all, of the Canadian versions of the handset will feature Qualcomm’s MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, an 8 megapixel rear shooter, 1.9MP front-facing camera, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 2100 mAh battery, and 2GB of RAM. That last bit isn’t speculation either. Samsung has confirmed via press release that it will have twice the RAM as the original, like NTT Docomo’s version in Japan. I imagine the same will be true when the Galaxy S3 hits the United States this summer.
The SGH-i747 model for Bell, Virgin, Rogers, TELUS and SaskTel will come in 16/32GB options and support LTE connectivity. TELUS, in particular, will offer both Pebble Blue and Marble White designs at $159.99 for 16GB and $209.99 for 32GB – both on three year deals. The SGH-iT999 for Videotron, Wind and Mobilicity will initially be launched in a 16GB configuration and supports HSPA+ 42 speeds. On the software-side you can expect the latest version of TouchWiz running atop Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
