Samsung Confirms GS3 2GB RAM For All US Models, Carriers Share Launch Details

We only just learned about Sprint’s plans for the Galaxy S III, but when it rains GS3 news, it pours; Samsung and some of the remaining major US carriers have been coming forward to help fill us in on the rest of the picture for the smartphone’s launch in the States.

First off, Samsung has confirmed that the handset will be coming to AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. All five carriers will be getting the GS3 version with 2GB of RAM, in addition to a Snapdragon S4 processor. Samsung mentions that the phone will start arriving sometime this month, but its side of the story ends there. For even more details, we turn to the carriers themselves.

We already knew Sprint would be getting the GS3 on June 21. Now T-Mobile announces it will also have the Android ready for sale on June 21. The carrier’s not accepting pre-orders just yet, but it has a sign-up page to register for more information on the phone.

On the flip side, Verizon has revealed that it’s opening-up pre-orders for its GS3 on June 6, starting at 7 a.m. Eastern. What it doesn’t mention, though, is just when the smartphone will actually arrive. We’d assume it would join Sprint and T-Mobile on June 21, but that’s yet to be confirmed.

We’re still waiting for statements from AT&T and US Cellular regarding their own Galaxy S III plans.

Update: US Cellular will open its own pre-orders on June 12, but it won’t get the phone until July.
