The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III SGH-T999 Android smartphone is rumored to be released later in June, however, up until now we weren’t sure what to expect in terms of design variations. Typically, US carriers tend to redesign the outer hardware of widely launched Samsung handsets in an effort to differentiate them from their original counterparts released months prior in Europe and Asia, as well as from competing stateside providers. That being said, if these leaked images are to be believed, it seems T-Mobile won’t be making too many adjustments to their Galaxy S3. Actually, aside from the T-Mobile branding on the back, the device pictured looks identical to the original with a big home button centered and sandwich by two capacitive buttons at the bottom.
It’s still unclear whether this version will have Samsung’s in-house Exynos quad-core chip or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, although we’re thinking it’s the latter. We’re also hoping to see 2GB of RAM, whether it’s needed or not, like the Canadian and Japanese Galaxy S III models. If this design is the real deal, it will be interesting to see if Sprint, Verizon and AT&T follow.
